Features - LEGENDS

Top jockeys often are faced with the difficult decision of choosing between multiple talented 3-year-olds for their mount for the Kentucky Derby.

This year for example, John Velazquez was the regular rider of both Florida Derby winner Orb and Wood Memorial Stakes winner Verrazano - considered by many to be the top two Kentucky Derby contenders - and faced a difficult decision. Velazquez ultimately settled on Verrazano.

History has shown us that top riders do not always choose wisely.
