Derby training report card: Wicked Strong, Intense Holiday impress


LOUISVILLE, Ky. – There were two horses on the radar when the racetrack opened for training Thursday morning at Churchill Downs: the Derby favorite, California Chrome, and second choice, Hoppertunity. Ultimately, only one of the pair showed up, with Hoppertunity scratched from the Derby shortly after the Oaks/Derby training session concluded at 8:45.
