Derby Six for 3/28/15

1. Dortmund 
Big Brown- Our Josephina by Tale Of The Cat  Jockey: Martin Garcia
Trainer: Bob Baffert
Owner: Kaleem Shah, Inc.

Derby Points: 70  

Was flattered by a huge performance by Firing Line in the Sunland Derby, but you have to wonder the class of the field Firing Line beat.

Super impressive run in the Risen Star, and with a little more ground this colt will only get better. He needs a long stretch and he will get that at Churchill Downs he is only going to get better with time and distance. Being by Curling out of an Awesome Again mare this colt is literally crying for a mile an…
