Derby 136 Profile: Eskendereya [Kentucky Derby]

Print

Award-winning trainer Todd Pletcher is bringing out the cavalry in his quest to become a Derby-winning trainer — he's likely to have five to seven starters in Kentucky Derby 136. Leading the charge will be Wood Memorial winner Eskendereya, with John Velazquez aboard.

The Giant's Causewa/Aldebaran Light colt has won his last three starts after being bumped — and finishing a disappointing ninth — in the 2009 Breeder's Cup Juvenile.
