Triple Crown News Minute Presented By Kentucky Equine Research: An Eventful Year, An Eventful Week

It’s been the longest road to the Kentucky Derby in the storied race’s history, with more than a few bumps and detours along the way in this year of the coronavirus pandemic. But, finally, Kentucky Derby day is almost upon us.

In this edition of the Kentucky Derby News Minute, publisher Ray Paulick and news editor Chelsea Hackbarth review some of the week’s big stories, including the outside post position draws for the three leading contenders, the new Derby starting gate, the unfortunate withdrawal of another top runner, Art Collector, and the respect his trainer, Tommy Drury has garnered for making what is probably the toughest call of his career. They also discuss the fact that two horses without any qualifying Derby points made it into a field that drew only 18 entries (and has been cut to 17 with the news late Thursday afternoon that King Guillermo will be scratched due to a fever).

Throughout the Road to the Derby, Paulick and Hackbarth have given their picks for the Derby preps and for this year’s Triple Crown lid-lifting Belmont Stakes, and suffice it to say Hackbarth has left Paulick in a cloud of dust. For the Kentucky Derby, she’s gone out on a 30-1 limb, while Paulick has settled on one of the favorites.
