Nafzger Wintering at Tampa Bay Downs

Trainer Carl Nafzger
Two-time Kentucky Derby-winning trainer Carl Nafzger will have a string of 14 horses here at Tampa Bay Downs this winter.

Nafzger won the 1990 Kentucky Derby with Unbridled and the 2007 Derby with Street Sense, a horse he shipped here to win the Tampa Bay Derby in a prep that set him up perfectly for his success in Kentucky.

It was his experience with Street Sense and other horses he has shipped to Tampa over the years from the East Coast of Florida that prompted Nafzger to apply for stalls here this season.

“I have been very pleased in the past with the racing surfaces both on the main track and the turf course, very happy with the way most of my horses come out of races here, so we decided to ask for stalls this season,” Nafzger said. “We will have horses at Palm Meadows, but we can ship horses to Tampa and back, try them on the turf if we want, and if they show a particular fondness for the main track or the turf there then we can leave them there and race them there. It gives us a lot of flexibility with our organization.”
