Simplification promises early payout odds of $2000 on a $100 bet should he go on to win this year's Kentucky Derby.

Simplification was the winner of the Fountain of Youth and Mucha Macho Man.  In between those two races, he finished 3rd in the Florida Derby and 2nd at the Holy Bull.

These are impressive results as each of the races are graded and Simplification finished among the top 3.  A trifecta bet featuring Simplification for this year's Kentucky Derby should certainly be considered.

These results mirrored that of another Antonio Sano-trained horse that performed well in a prior Triple Crown, Gunnavera.

"Gunnavera gave us our first Triple Crown experience. Ever since the Derby preps in Miami, you have to qualify with certain points, and he was able to win the Fountain of Youth and that was a race that got him into the Derby," said Antonio's son Alex. "That for us, meant a lot having our first Derby horse. After that, going to the Preakness and competing there."

Simplification will start from the number 13 spot, which has produced five winners in Kentucky Derby history.
