Racing to the Kentucky Derby


image
Like the artist formerly known as Cat Stevens, I'm leaving my happy home to see what I can find out.

But this search will be limited to finding out what makes some of this year's leading Kentucky Derby hopefuls, and their connections, think they can win America's Race on May's first Saturday.

And so, from Tampa Bay Downs, the little track that could, and did, successfully launch Street Sense's road to Derby stardom,; to Gulfstream Park, a traditional winter home of Derby champions; to Aqueduct Race Track, where the storied Wood Memorial is positioned perfectly to launch the division's best toward the coveted prize that awaits four weeks thereafter, HorseRaceInsider will put you at the epicenter of all things Derby.

How many horses will Nick Zito have to run in this year's Derby? And what about Bill Mott's talented crew? You think you'll ever see another Derby in the first quarter of this century without a starter from the Todd Pletcher shedow? Will Steve Asmussen pick up where Curlin left off?

And so, on and on I will go, the seconds tick the time out, there's so much left to know, and I'm on the road to find out.
