The Kentucky Derby is set to be run this coming Saturday at Churchill Downs. The 132nd "Run for the Roses" will kick off this year's quest for the Triple Crown, a feat that has not been matched since Affirmed in 1978. Good luck to all entrants, and will somebody please win that Triple Crown already?

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.

Barely 12 hours after Barbaro become just the sixth undefeated Derby winner, Triple Crown talk filled the air. It happens every Sunday after the first Saturday in May, when hopes are high in thoroughbred racing that a superstar has arrived to revive the sport.
