Magnificent seven for Derby genius O'Brien

Bob Baffert trainer Justify Kentucky Derby

Bob Baffert trainer Justify Kentucky Derby

Completing the O'Brien septet are Circus Maximus, Norway and Sovereign as the trainer looks to join Robert Robson, John Porter and Fred Darling as a seven-time Derby victor.

Broome has followed O'Brien's traditional Ballysax-Derrinstown Derby Trial route and will be ridden by his son, Donnacha, with Seamie Heffernan on Lingfield victor Anthony Van Dyck.

In the search for Derby glory, Aidan O'Brien trains seven of the Derby's 13 runners.

The colt, sent off at 13-2, finished strongly against the inside rail under Seamie Heffernan to score by about a length, with a four-way photo for second place. This races are so competitive and so tough that, until they pass the line - as we saw yesterday, you are never sure. All the way down the straight, we had a big team of horses challenging to win.

"We're looking forward to going back racing at the Curragh".

"Seamus gave him a great ride and I'm so delighted for Seamus who has been there for a long time". We do not put any of our Derby horses together at home. He didn't run a year ago, so we just minded him.

Celebrating such a success may not have happened for Seamie Heffernan if he had chose to pursue the route in racing he wanted to go, but it was one he can at long last put on a CV which includes three victories in the Irish equivalent.

To me, this spec sheet reads great for the 13-incher - it's basically a Windows-based, 13-inch MacBook Pro with more ports. The former has diamond-cut edges like those of the MacBook, as well as a comparative display with bezels almost as narrow.

Anthony Van Dyck's next big date is a day later, O'Brien confirmed, as he provided an update on future plans for several of his Epsom team. "He ran a very good trial when winning at Lingfield". "Everyone that works in Ballydoyle and Coolmore - there are so many people". He was fourth, behind Telecaster, in the Dante at York.

"We thought he would, that a mile-and-a-quarter would be no problem to him", he added. "It's going to be a hard judgement, because he looks great this morning", rued Morrison, whose New Approach colt had been supplemented at a cost of £85,000. The 2001 derby victor is the daddy, literally when it comes to Derby pedigrees.

Had it not been for the gutsy second of Madhmoon, also trained in Ireland by Kevin Prendergast, we would have been looking at the most remarkable race in horseracing since Michael Dickinson saddled the first five in the 1983 Cheltenham Gold Cup. The Derby is the top race.

Unfancied at 14/1 for his racecourse debut, he wasn't expected to be fighting out the finish at Tipperary, but he pulled something of a rabbit out of the hat by scoring by an effortless three lengths.

Morrison reports Telecaster apparently none the worse for the experience - and has no regrets.

"They were all there having a chance and I knew Kevin's horse was there - I knew that Kevin would have his horse in tip-top shape and he was a very good horse".

The Derby is the defining race in flat racing, not just in terms of the performance of the victor but in terms of the future of the thoroughbred as a breed.
