Does the name Bob Baffert sound familiar? Well it should since this trainer has earned three Kentucky Derby wins. Baffert's first Kentucky Derby victory came back in 1997 when Silver Charm earned the trainer his first Derby win. Since then, Baffert has had horses listed among the favorites to win each year. For the 2013 Kentucky Derby Baffert is considering entering the eleventh on the list of 20 Derby contenders GOVERNOR CHARLIE, this horse has speed and recently broke the track record in the G3 Sunland Derby going 1 1/8th mile at 1:47.54.
This horse has speed and it showed in his five length win over the field in the Sunland. Don't be surprised though, if Baffert opts out of the Derby with GOVENOR CHALIE and you see him in the Preakness Stakes.
According to the current 2013 Kentucky Derby odds, GOVENOR CHARLIE is listed middle of the pack with 18/1 odds. A good payday if he crosses the line first.
GOVENOR CHARLIE was sired by Midnight Lute and has back-to-back wins with a second place finish at 6 furlongs on 1/19/2013.
