Eleven Kentucky Derby Hopefuls Go to Work at Oaklawn Park

A field of eleven promising three-year-olds will line up in Monday’s $250,000 Southwest Stakes at Oaklawn Park including the 2011 debut of J P’s Gusto, winner of four stakes as a two-year-old.
The Joe Petalino trainee earned $490,000 in graded earnings last year, more than enough to assure a spot in the starting gate for the Kentucky Derby on May 7 at Churchill Downs.
