What Landed Epicenter in This Year's Kentucky Derby

Epicenter enters this year's Kentucky Derby the winner of his last two races, both Grade 2s: The Louisiana Derby and Risen Star.

Trainer Steve Asmussen has won everything but the Kentucky Derby.  Could this be the one?

“I’m not looking to change places with anybody,” Asmussen said of the early favorite. “I feel Epicenter, up to a mile and 3/16, is as fast as any horse going in, if not fastest.”

Asmussen calls Epicenter “a beautiful mover.”

“He’s just a really attractive horse that’s very physical,” Asmussen said. “He takes everything he does with a great amount of ease. He’s always maintained a very forward step. From last fall to him arriving here (in the spring), you can tell the difference in his confidence level and demeanor. … He looks a lot more mature and confident.”
