Bloodhorse: Early Voting Defeats Epicenter in Preakness

When trainer Chad Brown watched Zandon finish a hard-fought third in the Kentucky Derby Presented by Woodford Reserve (G1), the disappointment did not linger too long.

He knew he had Klaravich Stables’ Early Voting  in reserve.

“This is a lightly raced horse and when you start participating in the Kentucky Derby enough, you realize what a tough race it is with 20 horses,” Brown said. “As a trainer you have to deal with the aftermath and sometimes it’s not pretty, physically or mentally. It can cost you a good part of the 3-year-old year if you swing and miss … This horse just didn’t have the experience.”
