Expected favorite Brother Derek and three horses trained by Bob Baffert were among a full field of 20 3-year-olds entered Wednesday for the Kentucky Derby.
Brother Derek, trained by Dan Hendricks, will attempt to become the first horse bred in California to win Saturday's Derby since Decidedly in 1962. The colt is 3-for-3 this year and coming off a victory in the Santa Anita Derby.
Trainer Michael Matz was holding court outside his barn, his Kentucky Derby winner Barbaro just a few yards away munching grass.
