Undefeated Hansen Hits the Derby Trail in Holy Bull Saturday


HALLANDALE BEACH, FL - Kendall Hansen and Sky Chai Racing’s undefeated 2011 Eclipse champion 2-year-old Hansen takes his first steps toward the Kentucky Derby (G1) and Triple Crown trail as the flashy roan/gray colt launches his 3-year-old campaign in Sunday’s $400,000 Holy Bull Stakes (G3) going a mile at Gulfstream Park.

Jockey Ramon Dominguez will be back in the saddle on Hansen for trainer Mike Maker after they teamed up for a stunning wire-to-wire victory by a head over heavy favorite Union Rags in the $2 million Breeders’ Cup Juvenile (G1) at Churchill Downs on Nov. 5.
