Kentucky Derby Horses 2012: El Padrino Looks To Make Good On 16/1 Odds

The offspring of Pulpit, a 1997 favorite to win the Kentucky Derby, El Padrino is a colt who was bred for greatness. Unfortunately, El Padrino's father sustained a career ending injury in the Run for the Roses (where he still finished fourth), but life wasn't all bad for Pulpit after the race as he retired to be a stud.

El Padrino is trained by Todd Fletcher who won the 2010 Kentucky Derby with Super Saver. He led all trainers in monies earned in 2011 working with such stable stars as Stay Thirsty and Awesome Maria. Rafael Bejarano will be the jockey and has won riding titles at all major tracks in California and Kentucky. The ownership group is Let's Go Stable and was created in 2006 by Kevin Scatuorchio and Bryan Sullivan.

As of April 29, El Padrino is a 16/1 odds to win.

Here is how El Padrino has faired in his three most recent races:

Florida Derby, March 31: Finished fourth; 1 1/8 miles.

Risen Star, February 25: Finished first; 1 1/16 miles.

Remsen, November 26: Finished third, 1 1/8 miles.
