Vale Of York On Track To Kentucky Derby

The fantastic upset victory by Vale Of York (IRE) in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile has given Godolphin dreams of another conquest in next year’s Derby.

No. Not the Epsom Derby, the Kentucky Derby.

“He handled the synthetic surface well,” said Godolphin Racing Manager Simon Crisford in a Racing Post news article. “We don’t know whether or not he will handle the dirt at Churchill Downs as well, but we certainly will give it a try.”


  1. Hi Calvin, what a Breeders Cup event this year. Simply Spectacular!

    Now that Godolphin won the Breeders Cup Juvenile with Vale of York. I wonder if their normal investment into American Breed stock will change this year?

    I'm sure some owners are considering selling the colts and fillies to Godolphin. Just trying to figure out who?

  2. Barry,

    Barry, I don't know if Godolphin is at the Keeneland sale. Here's an interesting story about that:

  3. Thanks Calvin
