Bob Baffert is Ready for 145th Kentucky Derby
We are three months away from the exciting Kentucky Derby to happen on the May 4th at the dirt tracks of Churchill Downs, Louisville.
Now on its 145th annual running, this Grade 1 stake race for 3-year-old Thoroughbreds with a sprint distance of 1 and a quarter mile, will surely be one to look forward to after Justify’s win for the Triple Crown last year.
The Kentucky Derby, or what other calls as ‘The Run for the Roses” or “The Fastest Two Minutes in Sports” is ranked as one of the most important thoroughbred races in the world and the first to form the Triple Crown Series. This race has been the longest running since 1875 even continuing through two World Wars and the Great Depression which makes it a valuable jewel in the racing world.
Justify, who recently was honored as the Horse of the Year at the 2018 Eclipse Award last month is under the training barn of Bob Baffert, the same person who trained 2015 Triple Crown winner American Pharoah. Justify was recognized for his Triple Crown-winning season as the 3-year old champion male who is the first in the horse racing sport’s history to win the series without racing as a 2-year-old.
Baffert Has a Deep Stable
Thus, confirms that Baffert’s deep and talented barn will surely take part again for this year’s Kentucky. Being a senior trainer won’t stop Baffert knowing he has won the Derby for 5 times and now has four of the nominated horses in the Pool for Kentucky Derby.
On the list is Game Winner, Improbable, Mucho Gusto and Coliseum who surely have shown everyone how feisty they can get on track.
Game Winner is definitely on the top of the list with his recent victory in the Breeder’s Cup Juvenile in November last year on the same grounds. Horse racing fans and wagerers are stoked to see him make a good first run this year next month at the Grade 2 San Felipe Stakes at Santa Anita Park.
Unbeaten Improbable under Baffert’s training club is also expected to run during the Derby. He is the son of City Zip who is a swift colt that can run 5 furlongs at :58.40 at Santa Anita in his recent run.
These are just 2 of the four that will definitely show some muscle in the upcoming races and the Derby on May. It is positive that Baffert would most likely win again this year and he is proud to say that these great horses can work it for them.
