first stakes win by establishing a track record of 1:40.86
Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) - Over the last 30 years, the winner of the Breeders' Cup Juvenile has been awarded the position as the early favorite for the following year's Kentucky Derby. Just one Juvenile champ, Street Sense, has accomplished the double victory.

Now as 2014 comes to an end, the early favorite for the 141st Run for the Roses is not Texas Red, winner of the 31st Juvenile, but a 2-year-old colt who didn't start in the race on Nov. 1 at Santa Anita.

As the calendar changes to 2015, the leading soon-to-be 3-year-old is a Bob Baffert-trained thoroughbred with just three starts, including a single stakes. His name is Dortmund, a son of 2008 Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner Big Brown.  Full Story
