KENTUCKY DERBY | Fast and Accurate Training in Unique Location

04/27/2017 06:03 PM

Fast and Accurate has never won on a dirt track.

The horse is hoping to change that next week at the 143rd running of the Kentucky Derby.

The Mike Maker-trained colt is currently training at Trackside Training Facility, which is owned by Churchill Downs.

“It’s more quiet,” said Maker. “We’re able to have more horses over here.”

Fast and Accurate will not move to Churchill until three days before the Derby.

Spectrum News’ Gary Fogle has more on the horse’s quest to become a Derby champion:
