In what was probably the fastest six-furlong workout ever run before a Kentucky Derby, Old Trieste shocked clockers Sunday with a 1:09 time, missing the track record by two-fifths of a second. Horses are not supposed to work that fast, but Mike Puype, Old Trieste's trainer, didn't seem to think the lickety-split workout will hurt his colt's chances in Saturday's Derby. Robby Albarado, who will ride Old Trieste in the Derby, was in the saddle for the work.

Reporting from Louisville, Ky. Trainer Graham Motion and jockey Johnny Velazquez had miserable luck this week at Churchill Downs in the lead-up to the 137th running of the Kentucky Derby. At the start of the week, Motion lost what everyone believed was his best horse, Toby's Corner, to a leg injury. By midweek, Robby Albarado, the jockey for Motion's second-best horse, Animal Kingdom, suffered a broken nose that put his status for the Derby in doubt. By the end of the week, Velazquez lost what looked like his best shot at an elusive Derby victory when Uncle Mo, a horse most were calling the most talented 3-year-old in the country, had to be scratched because of a mysterious intestinal illness.
