One of the outriders catches a loose horse during the works Wednesday morning at Churchill Downs

Wednesday Kentucky Derby Photos

Date: 05/2/2007

Wednesday morning before the Kentucky Derby saw many of the horses on the track to stretch their legs. Although I was not able to get a photo credential this year, I was able to join Jane Dempsey's Kentucky Derby Junket group to tour the backside and catch some of the morning works plus Amber Chalfin and Patty Yount were nice enough to give me a few additional photos to use.

Here are 13 of the Kentucky Derby horses plus 6 Oaks fillies with comments on what they did.

Dominican jogged a mile, and then quickened his pace to gallop a mile and a quarter over the fast main track.

Great Hunter went to the track after the renovation break with exercise rider Tony Romero aboard, he schooled in the paddock, jogged three-quarters of a mile and galloped 1 1/2 miles.

Hard Spun the son of Danzig schooled in the paddock for 10 minutes, and then went on the track to gallop a mile and three-eighths with trainer Larry Jones aboard.

Imawildandcrazyguy galloped a mile and a half at Churchill Downs on Wednesday morning.

Liquidity on Tuesday morning schooled in the paddock and jogged about a mile and galloping about 1 miles.

Stormello was out for a mile-and-a-half gallop Wednesday morning under exercise rider Michelle Nevin. "He went just fine," said trainer Bill Currin. "He wasn't blowing at all after the gallop, and he was hardly wet."
