Kentucky Derby 2013: Revolutionary
Revolutionary is comfortable at Churchill Downs and is ready for the 139th running of the Kentucky Derby on May 4, 2013. Revolutionary enters the Kentucky Derby with 110 points on the Leaderboard.
Revolutionary has been described as a happy playful horse with superior athleticism. Sources revealed this morning that the three-year-old dark brown colt isn’t phased by morning workouts that leave other horses breathless. Revolutionary has placed first in his last three races, which may help him better understand what is expected of him on the track this Saturday. Experts claim Revolutionary has acquired exceptional speed and stamina from his bloodline. I’m no expert, but Revolutionary makes me want to run out and buy a red white and blue dress for the Derby!
Revolutionary is owned by WinStar Farm and trained by Todd Pletcher. What we are most excited about is that three-time Kentucky Derby winner Calvin Borel will lead Revolutionary across the finish line! Calvin Borel won the Kentucky Derby aboard Street Sense, Mine That Bird, and Super Saver. He has also won the Kentucky Oaks aboard the famed Rachel Alexandra. Calvin Borel was recently elected into the National Museum of Racing Hall of Fame.
World famous jockey Calvin Borel stated, “Revolutionary listens to me. I can keep him focused on the track. He’s not a very focused horse but come race day he’ll be focused.”
Calvin Borel added, “Revolutionary is a happy horse. Todd will keep him happy until race day. He’s in good hands.”
Lady and The Track would like to wish WinStar Farm, Todd Pletcher, Calvin Borel, and the amazing Revolutionary the best of luck in the 2013 Kentucky Derby! Good Luck! Safe Run!
The 2013 Kentucky Derby will take place on May 4 with a post time of 6:24 PM EST and can be viewed on NBC.
