Most remarkable about WinStar's late surge is it keeps up one of the more notable streaks in racing.

This year marks the fourth consecutive season WinStar will have at least two starters in the Derby, having sent out Colonel John and Court Vision in 2008, Any Given Saturday and Cowtown Cat in 2007, and Bluegrass Cat and Sharp Humor in 2006.
