What beautiful words, O Besos will run for the roses on Saturday, beginning from post position six in the full field of 20 for Kentucky Derby 147. The draw was not without an anxious moment or two.
Greg Foley said, “I don’t think my heart was racing that hard in a long time as one of five horses left and the rail still yet to be drawn. We drew a great spot in the gate.”

O Besos is coming into the race very well by all accounts. Video is here of his gallop early Tuesday morning.
