KENTUCKY DERBY | A deeper look at Derby 142 contenders

04/23/2016 12:17 PM

We are two weeks out form the 142nd Run for the Roses, and the field is starting to take shape. Many of the horses in this year’s field are already on the grounds of Churchill Downs and at nearby Lexington track, Keeneland.

We had an opportunity to speak with a man seen his fair-share of Kentucky Derbies, and is an integral part of making the show run smoothly. John Asher is the Vice President of Racing Communications at Churchill Downs, and we had the opportunity to talk about this year’s Derby contenders.
