Hence powers to Sunland Derby victory

Calumet Farm’s homebred Hence failed to factor while making his stakes debut in the February 20 Southwest Stakes (G3) at Oaklawn Park, but a change in venue on Sunday saw the Steve Asmussen-trained sophomore romp home an easy winner of the $800,000 Sunland Derby (G3).

I'll take the overs!
I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

If there is ever a good year for a non US horse to win this, its this year! Very curious to see how he does!

Derby works today: Battle of Midway (4F, :48 2/5) & Royal Mo (3F, :41 3/5). Royal Mo won't go on work tab, but not abnormal Shirreffs move.

It's notable that Gary Stevens was aboard Royal Mo today. Shirreffs said Stevens wanted to "get to know him" better.
