Asmussen has trained over 6000 winners and won 650 races in 2009, shattering his own record for wins in a single season. Garret Gomez will be the jockey; he won back-to-back Eclipses for Outstanding Jockey in 2007 and 2008 and has won ten Breeders' cup races. He has nine appearances in the Derby with his best finish coming in 2009 when he finished second. Cathy and Bob Zellers are the owners and have been associated with horse racing since the 1990s. They have previously run in the Derby with Fifty Stars and Private Emblem.
