Goldencents Has Uneventful Trip to Louisville

Trainer Doug O’Neill, in quest of a second consecutive Kentucky Derby victory, reported that Santa Anita Derby winner Goldencents arrived in Louisville without incident.

“He left LAX at 2 a.m. Saturday morning, got here in fine shape, and so far everything’s gone perfectly,” said O’Neill.” “I arrived in the early evening. The whole crew is here and we are pumped up.” O’Neill added that Goldencents jogged on the Churchill Downs main track Sunday morning.

The son of Into Mischief, whose victories also include the Grade III Delta Jackpot and Grade III Sham Stakes, is following a similar pattern as I’ll Have Another, winner of the 2012 Kentucky Derby for O’Neill.

“The pattern may be similar, but you have to have the horse,” continued O’Neill. “I’d say it’s 99 per cent the horse and one per cent our program. Last year’s experience has really helped our crew handle the situation.”

Chocolate, vanilla or strawberry?
No, LD.
Mr. O'Neill left himself enough time to get him "ready" if you know what I mean.
Go Goldie!
