Master of Hounds a Go for Kentucky Derby
by Steve Haskin BLOODHORSE
A spokesman for Coolmore Stud confirmed April 18 that Mrs. John Magnier’s Master of Hounds is being pointed for the Kentucky Derby Presented by Yum! Brands (gr. I).
Not only is “the plan at the moment to run Master of Hounds in the Derby,” but Coolmore could be represented in the Woodford Reserve Turf Classic (gr. IT) by Jan Vermeer, but the son of Montjeu is only regarded as a possible at this point. Trainer Aidan O’Brien is expected to make a decision later in the week.
