Lukas fingerprints all over this Kentucky Derby


LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Hall of Fame trainer Wayne Lukas has saddled 47 Kentucky Derby starters, winning four editions of the classic along the way. He has just one shot at his fifth Derby victory on Saturday, sending out longshot Mr. Z. However, don’t think the Lukas influence isn’t all over this Derby. Eight of the projected 20 starters are trained by Lukas or a former assistant.
