Calvin Borel recently worked Stay Thirsty
but Ramon Dominguez was given the mount for the Kentucky Derby.
Is it possible that the winning Derby rider in three of the last four years will be without a mount on the first Saturday in May?
Horses pointing to the Derby that still need a rider are Master of Hounds and Twinspired.
Uncle Mo's stablemate Stay Thirsty, owned by Mike Repole and trained by Todd Pletcher, won the Gotham Stakes (G3) under Ramon Dominguez before finishing up the track in the Florida Derby (G1). He drilled a five furlong bullet in 1:00 at Churchill Downs on April 24.
