Take the Points out of Derby, Atomic Rain in

5/1/2009

LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- Advice and Join in the Dance will join Dunkirk as starters in the Kentucky Derby for trainer Todd Pletcher, but Take the Points will not run, allowing Atomic Rain to get into the race.

Pletcher made his decision just before noon on Tuesday. He said Rene Douglas would ride Advice, and Join in the Dance would be ridden by Chris DeCarlo.

Atomic Rain, now 20th on the graded stakes earnings list, will be ridden by Joe Bravo, trainer Kelly Breen said.
