The victory earned him 100 points based on Churchill Downs’ criteria for making the 20-horse field and ranks him fifth among the hopefuls for the first Saturday in May.

Arkansas Derby Quotes:


Owner Mike Repole, Repole Stable (1st Overanalyze) (via phone) – “When (jockey) Johnny (Velazquez) got off him after the Gotham he said he flattened out probably needed the race. Todd was going to run Verrazano in the Wood, so we decided to split the two horses up and come here. I wasn’t surprised that he won, but I was shocked at how easy he won. I’m really blessed to have a filly (Unlimited Budget) for the Oaks and now a colt for the (Kentucky) Derby.”

He bred a really nice horse, and we’re fortunate to have it in our hands. Yeah, it’s fun for me, but listen he’s the one who put up the dough and I’m thrilled for him.”
