I Want Revenge arrives at Churchill


I Want Revenge, one of the early favorites for the 135th Kentucky Derby, was driven through the Churchill Downs stable gate early Tuesday morning following a van ride from New York.

Churchill officials reported that I Want Revenge arrived at 5:45 a.m. Eastern and was bedded down in Barn 24. The colt is one of the first prospects for the May 2 Derby to be shipped to Churchill. Musket Man, winner of the Illinois Derby last weekend, arrived Sunday at the Louisville, Ky., track.

I Want Revenge, trained by Jeff Mullins, was a highly impressive winner of his last two starts, the Gotham and Wood Memorial at Aqueduct. He closed as the 9-2 favorite in the third and final pool of the Kentucky Derby Future Wager last weekend.
