Who is the Kentucky Derby Favorite?
Having won his last 4 races by more than 22 lengths, American Pharoah blazed through his final pre-Derby workout Sunday, ripping through five furlongs in 58.40 seconds. The performance was the final stamp of approval of the horse as the Derby favorite – and then some. It moved longtime workout clocker Gary Young to make this declaration to the track publicity staff: “I have been doing this for 35 years, and he might be the best horse I’ve ever seen.”
Then undefeated Dortmund showed up on the track Monday after shipping in from California, looking as much like a CGI creation as a real horse. The rippling, statuesque giant stands 17.2 hands tall and weighs 1,360 pounds. The son of 2008 Derby winner Big Brown is out of a towering mare named Our Josephina – a little bit like coupling Rebecca Lobo with Shaq.
Six years ago, Baffert’s Pioneerof The Nile was second to shocking longshot Mine That Bird, who shot through on the rail to score one of the biggest Derby upsets ever. Pioneerof The Nile also was trained by Baffert and owned by Zayat – and happens to be American Pharoah’s sire.
At the end of the day, nobody owns the Kentucky Derby. You can only hope to steal a two-minute tryst with it.
