What a story it would be if this 'Accidental' Derby Horse wins it all.
Derby Kitten's Date with Destiny? | BloodHorse.com
When Derby Kitten pulled an upset in the Coolmore Lexington Stakes (gr. III) at Keeneland April 23, owner-breeder Ken Ramsey did not have Derby on his mind despite the ambitious name he had given the colt.
“When Derby Kitten crossed the finish line, there was no Derby thrill at all. I had no idea we were close to getting in,” said the owner of Ramsey Farm near Nicholasville, Ky. “I came home and checked. We were 31st on the list (of graded earnings) after the Coolmore Lexington.”
As the month played out, though, casualties and common sense began altering the Kentucky Derby picture. Then, on May 3, the magic 20 spot opened for Derby Kitten with the withdrawal of an injured Toby's Corner.
