Sadler: Santa Anita Derby Winner Rock Your World Will Return To Turf

Trainer John Sadler told the Daily Racing Form Sunday that Santa Anita Derby winner Rock Your World will return to turf for his next start.

The 3-year-old son of Candy Ride won his first two starts on the grass, then dominated by over five lengths when switched to the dirt for the Santa Anita Derby. A tough trip saw the colt finish 17th in the Kentucky Derby, and Rock Your World did not threaten when sixth in the Belmont Stakes five weeks later.

Now, Sadler said the long-range target is the Grade 2 Del Mar Derby (nine furlongs on the turf) on Sept. 4. If Rock Your World is ready and requires a prep race, the G3 La Jolla (1 1/16 miles on the grass) on Aug. 8 is a possibility.
