Kentucky Derby Baffert horses get in final workouts
2014-04-29

I was more worried about the lightning, he said. It was pretty hairy out there.

But after the weather subsided, Baffert sent both to the track and liked what he saw.

Oaks hopeful Ria Antonia worked four furlongs in 47.40 seconds, the fastest of 13 workouts at the distance Monday.

Working alongside barnmate Drill, Derby hopeful Hoppertunity covered four furlongs in 48 seconds. The 5-year-old Drill finished in 48.40 seconds.

Drill is always the aggressor and has a lot of horse, and (Hoppertunity) just went along there steady, Baffert said. (Jockey Martin Garcia) said he was having a hard time pulling him up there at the end. He looks good, and Im really happy the work got in.

Baffert said his other Derby hopeful, Chitu, was doing well after breezing six furlongs in 1:13.20 on Sunday. During that workout, Chitu lost a special-made shoe he was wearing on his right-front foot because of a fungus condition.

Baffert said Chitu will have a regular shoe on the foot for the Derby.

Its more of a cosmetic-looking thing on him, Baffert said. It was blown out of proportion. The foot is all patched up, so hes good.

Tapiture, the other Derby horse on Mondays tab, went out under the lights for a maintenance work that turned out anything but routine. The skies opened up as Tapiture readied, then breezed four furlongs in 0:50 with thunder crackling overhead.

Most all Derby works are in the books now other than a scheduled breeze for trainer Mike Maker's General a Rod on Tuesday morning. Wicked Strong and Uncle Sigh may also put in short works before Saturday's race.

2010-04-20

Lovers of southern tradition have a place to be in the first weekend of May- in the Louisville Kentucky Derby. You don’t have to be a fan of horseracing to be there. Actually, the race lasts only about two minutes; the rest of the time is devoted to the other traditions that bring most of the people to the Kentucky Derby in the first place. Those who love betting on horses come in their thousands for this annual event. The Kentucky Derby is one of the races that have to be won by anyone wishing to have the Triple Crown title.

In some ways, attending the Kentucky Derby is like attending the Oscars. The Kentucky Derby has its traditions in terms of dress, since no one want to look out of place. This is a place to have fun and to look fashionable and have as many mint julep servings as you want. One of the traditions that set the Kentucky Derby apart from the rest is the Kentucky Derby hats. These unique hats have large brims to protect the wearers from the sun. Some of them are decorated with crystal figurines of horses to fit in with the theme of the day. Some have beads for decoration and can be worn on the side of the head to look more chic.

These hats have a long tradition in the horseracing culture. This culture comes from the English where rules of etiquette are adhered to the highest possible standards. All the royalties were expected to wear hats if they wanted to give a positive image of themselves to others. It was fashionable for a long time as well. England was the Mecca of the horseracing culture and with beginning of the culture in the United States, the culture of hats came naturally.

The millionaires and celebrities tend to follow this culture to date but the rules have been relaxed among the ‘commoners’.

As for those who plan to be in the infield, there are fewer rules for you to follow. You need to have a hat though, not only to fit in but also so that you are not burnt by the heat of the sun. The clothing rules are also relaxed; you can wear some flip flops and some shorts and a T-shirt, and you will be at home in the Kentucky Derby.
