My top ranked Kentucky Derby 2013 contender Revolutionary
arrived at Churchill Downs on Friday, April 12. He will need a new
rider for the Derby because regular pilot Javier Castellano decided to
stick with Normandy Invasion.
Last weekend, Verrazano kept his perfect record
intact with a solid if unspectacular victory by a bit less than a length
in the slow early/fast late Wood Memorial (95 BSF).
Normandy Invasion finished well to nab the place late and punched his Derby ticket in the process. Vyjack crossed the line in 3rd, losing for the first time in his career.
