A quick wit gets trainer Derek Ryan through his work days.
Schoolyard Dreams can provide him with a keen sense of direction today
in the 30th annual Tampa Bay Derby, the $300,000 signature event on
Tampa Bay Downs Festival Day.
The 1 1/16-mile race attracted
seven 3-year-old colts and serves as a key prep for the Kentucky Derby
on May 1. It is one of three Grade III races and four stakes overall on
the 12-race card.
