Sweet Ducky could return to US for Derby

SWEET DUCKY could go to the Kentucky Derby (G1) if he has a big run in the 2011 UAE Derby (G2), according to trainer Herman Brown.  “It would be tough to turn it down if he runs a great race,” Brown said on Wednesday morning when overseeing BANKABLE’s trackwork for the Dubai Duty Free (G1).  “Obviously, I would like him to grow more through his 3-year-old year, but going to Kentucky would be impossible to not consider Kentucky if he runs a big one here.”  Below, Brown (middle) looks on as his new trainee cools down on the Tapeta, Monday.  A win in the race, run over 1,900 metres (about 1 3/16 miles), would translate to $1.2 million graded earnings.  Already with $120,000 in graded earnings from his second in the Holy Bull (G3) at Gulfstream and a fourth in the Delta Jackpot (G3), a finish of fourth or better in the UAE Derby would give the son of Pulpit at least $220,000, near assured of a spot in the field if they enter.


  1. With a Kentucky Derby future book bet on the horse at 50/1 I certainly hope he runs big in the UAE Derby.
