Carpe Diem heads the field of eight for Saturday’s $1 million Bluegrass at Keeneland in Lexington, Kentucky. He should have an easy time with the only other graded winner in the group being Ocho Ocho Ocho, who ran eight in the Santa Anita San Felipe.
The solid gold trophy for the 141st running of the Kentucky Derby was unveiled at Churchill Downs on Tuesday. The award, adorned with an 18-karat gold horseshoe, represents 2000 man hours of hand-crafted labor by the New England Sterling Co. of North Attleboro, Massachusetts.
Unfortunately, the Kentucky Derby is over for the colt, Far From Over. Todd Pletcher, the trainer, said the horse suffered a very minor fracture in his left hind leg. The good news is Far From Over is expected to make a full recovery, but not in time for the Kentucky Derby.
