Revolutionary takes the Louisiana Derby

WinStar Farm LLC’s Revolutionary avoided a repeat of his Withers Stakes (G3) traffic problems by taking the overland route to the lead at the top of the stretch of Saturday’s $1,000,000 Louisiana Derby (G2). Although headed by late-running Mylute in mid-stretch, he fought back and edged away in the final yards to win by a neck. It’s the second straight graded stakes win for 3-year-old colt by War Pass, likely on his way to the Kentucky Derby (G1) with a 6-3-1-2 record and earnings of $788,500. He was sold for $235,000 at the 2012 OBS March Sale by Niall Brennan Stables, Agent. watch his under tack video
