Pletcher dominates Kentucky Derby trail
No trainer has started more than five horses in a Kentucky Derby.
The way the Derby prep season is shaping up, that could change. Todd Pletcher has a shot at saddling six or seven of the 20 3-year-olds who will be led into the starting gate at Churchill Downs on May 4.
"Right now, at this stage, I can't recall having this depth," the trainer said during a conference call Tuesday, adding that great expectations in mid-February can turn quickly by the first Saturday in May. "But we are hopeful we're able to keep it going."
Pletcher's posse of prospects is led by Shanghai Bobby, who remains No. 1 in the AP's latest Run to the Roses list of Top 10 Derby contenders.
