Kentucky Derby

Churchill Downs, Race No # 12 | Saturday, May 7, 6:34 pm ET
1 1/4 m | Open | 3 Year Olds | Purse: $2,000,000

The 142nd Run for the Roses attracted an overflow field of 22, including the most accomplished entrant in the race’s history. Undefeated Nyquist has won all seven of his starts, six of those graded stakes, captured the G1 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile, was crowned Champion 2-year-old Male and has banked a Derby record of $3,322,600 in earnings while racing on four different tracks around the country. On top of all that, the son of Uncle Mo represents the same owner-trainer-jockey combination in Reddam Racing-Doug O’Neill-Mario Gutierrez that won the 2012 Derby and Preakness with I’ll Have Another. Nyquist drew post 13 for his date with destiny and from the rail out, here’s a look at his challengers.

Horse to Watch


Sitting at 23rd on the G1 Kentucky Derby leaderboard with 32 qualifying points as of April 25, this son of Uncle Mo needs several contenders to withdraw from the race in order to run for the roses. Despite never having found the winner’s circle in his five tries, the well-traveled Laoban amassed his point total with a third in Santa Anita’s G3 Sham S. on Jan. 9 (2 points), a second in Aqueduct’s G3 Gotham S. on March 5 (20 points) and a fourth in Keeneland’s G1 Blue Grass S. on April 9 (10 points). The Eric Guillot trainee was piloted by Jose Lezcano for the first time in the Blue Grass and overcame a poor start to set the pace before weakening late to round out the superfecta behind winner Brody’s Cause. The colt completed the 1 1/8m over a fast course in 1:51.2 and was given an 88 BRIS Speed Rating, four points below his top figure of 92 from the Gotham. Laoban raced twice as a juvenile, showing little in his debut at Del Mar before improving with a runner-up effort at Los Alamitos. Bred in Kentucky by Respite Farm, the dark bay is out of Chattertown, a daughter of Speightstown, and was foaled on Jan. 31, 2013.

Upcoming 3yo Maiden & Allowance Races

Friday May 6

Churchill Downs Race # 5: 1m Turf Mdn 62k - Caribbean, Uncle Guy and Commend are nominated to the Triple Crown but seem more likely candidates for the grassy July 9 G1 Belmont Derby Invitational if they can clear this hurdle. Commend had the lead in the stretch of a Keeneland contest at this distance last out only to be caught and lose by a head. Uncle Guy cuts back after completing the trifecta in back-to-back 1 1/8m races at Gulfstream Park. Caribbean showed little when launching his career on dirt then was easily best of the rest on Turfway Park’s Polytrack.

Saturday May 7

Churchill Downs Race # 13: 7f OC 75000n1x - One of two post-Kentucky Derby races on this marathon card features four Triple Crown nominees who still have a shot to compete in the classics. Uncle Walter gets class relief off of three straight graded stakes against Kentucky Derby entrants. Fish Trappe Road hasn’t raced since running up the track in the Jan. 16 G3 LeComte S. at Fair Grounds. Harlan Punch appeared to be on par with stablemate and Derby runner Mo Tom last year but has failed to display that same form in two tries this season.

This Kentucky-bred son of Tapit will be the second Japan-based entrant ever to run for the roses when he breaks out of the Churchill Downs starting gate on the first Saturday in May. Lani, who punched his ticket to Louisville with a late-running score in the 1 3/16m G2 UAE Derby that awarded 100 Kentucky Derby qualifying points to the winner, has taken an unconventional path in nearly every possible way. The Mikio Matsunaga trainee raced four times in Japan as a juvenile, winning his final two, then disappointed in his sophomore debut when fifth in the Hyacinth S. there. Lani rebounded from that by showing a nice closing kick in Dubai after stumbling at the start under jockey Yutaka Take, who rode Japan’s last Derby representative, Ski Captain, to a 14th-place finish in 1995.
