Equation for Derby Contender

$3.7 million purchase price + sired by Unbridled Song + out of an A.P. Indy mare + Todd Pletcher-trained + owned in partnership with Michael Tabor + single day, cross-country flight for rider Garret Gomez + troubled, six-wide trip for win + 2-for-2 record = Kentucky Derby contender. 

His name is Dunkirk - one of 378 "Other Than" entries from Kentucky Derby Future Pool #1 that will be heard from before and even possibly during the first Saturday in May. Dunkirk will attempt to follow the road left by last year's Derby champ (Big Brown), taking on all competitors in the Grade I Florida Derby after two consecutive wins to start racing career.
