Top Three Kentucky Derby Horses Have KER ConnectionsBy Kentucky Equine Research Staff · May 4, 2015
Not one, not two, but all three of this year’s top Kentucky Derby finishers trained and raced on feed products that contain micronutrients from Kentucky Equine Research (KER).
American Pharoah, winner of the race, and third-place finisher Dortmund are both trained by Bob Baffert. Firing Line, the second-place horse, is trained by Simon Callaghan. To guarantee that their Derby horses had a complete supply of dietary vitamins and minerals, these trainers chose grain products formulated with micronutrients provided by KER.
Hallway Feeds, a Team Member of KER, manufactured these racing feeds designed to support the needs of Thoroughbred racehorses in training.
