Tony Bada Bing takes a look at Thoroughbred breeder/owner WinStar Farm’s five likely Kentucky Derby contenders – Audible, Noble Indy, Bolt d’Oro, Justify, and Quip compared with 85-year-old, Joe Peacock who’ll get his first Kentucky Derby starter with homebred, Runaway Ghost. While WinStar has quickly become a major player at thoroughbred racing’s highest levels, Mr. Peacock has bred and owned mostly modest horses that race off the beaten path in New Mexico. The wonderful thing about the Kentucky Derby, both the David and Goliath can share the same incredible dream of racing for a blanket of roses!
