What the Nation is saying about Victory Speech...

Associated Press Published: Saturday, May 4, 1996 Grindstone nipped Cavonnier at the wire in the Kentucky Derby on Saturday and gave trainer D. Wayne Lukas an incredible sixth straight victory in a Triple Crown race. Read More
  • CauseForConcern · The Triple Crown that was influenced by Grindstone: After winning the Kentucky Derby, it was determined that he was injured, and be retired, to stand at stud. Since Jerry Bailey had rewarded Lukas with the Derby, it was only fitting that he provide him with the best of the rest of his stock. He decided that Bailey would ride Prince Of Thieves, who finished third behind Grindstone in the Derby, in the Preakness. This move cost Pat Day a mount, but, Nick Zito came a calling. He asked Day if he would like to ride his colt, Louis Quatorze, who finished 16th in the Derby. Day accepted the offer, and proceeded to lead wire-to-wire. As Day crossed the finish line, he threw up his hand, as if to say that this was Number 5 Preakness win. Or, was it something directed at Lukas for taking him off of a live mount? When the Belmont came around, the one that would be the victor was none other than Editor's Note, who was the betting interest entrymate of Grindstone in the Kentucky Derby. And he,not Grindstone, was probably more of the reason why Grindstone didn't pay that much in the Derby. So, there you have it: 1996, the year the Triple Crown was influenced by Grindstone. · 384 days ago ·
