Dialed In proved himself a legitimate contender to pre-race favorite Uncle Mo for the upcoming Kentucky Derby on May 7. The dark brown colt electrified the crowd at Gulfstream by coming from a fourteen-length deficit to win the Florida Derby on Sunday. The Nick Zito-trained colt bested what was considered the deepest field in a decade in this million dollar Grade 1 prep for the Triple Crown season. Soldat, the pre-race favorite, came in fifth.

Affirmed was the last horse to win the Triple Crown. That was in 1978. The horse racing industry needs something to cheer about, and a new super-horse would be the answer to their dreams.

More details in Greg Cote’s article in the Miami Herald.
