Jockey Eddie Arcaro is shown petting Devil Diver, Greentree Stable's entry in the Kentucky Derby. Arcaro is confident that Diver is good enough to walk off with the blue ribbon of the American turf at Churchill Downs tomorrow. Devil Diver will probably go to the post among the favorites.
Uncaptured was installed as the 3-1 morning line favorite when entries were drawn on Wednesday for Saturday’s Spiral Stakes (G3) at Turfway Park. Trained in Ocala by Mark Casse, Uncaptured will be making his first start since November when he captured the Kentucky Jockey Club Stakes (G2) at Churchill Downs for owner John Oxley. Uncaptured breezed a mile in 1:40 over the all-weather surface at the Ocala Training Center on March 12 in preparation for his seasonal bow.
