Brooklyn Strong and Hidden Stash to run in the Kentucky Derby

LOUISVILLE, Ky.--Pennsylvania will have two entries of very strong interest in this year's Kentucky Derby to be held Saturday, May 1.

Brooklyn Strong has been very lightly raced but comes into the Derby as a graded stakes winner with three wins and one third from five starts, having won both the G2 Remsen Stakes at Aqueduct and the Sleepy Hollow Stakes at Belmont, both in 2020.

Most recently, Brooklyn Strong finished fifth in the G2 Wood Memorial at Aqueduct on April 3, but he was only beaten by a total of about 4 lengths, and he was closing on rivals in the 1 1/8 mile race, while the Derby is 1 1/4 miles, which should work to Brooklyn Strong's advantage.

"I' sure he can get the distance," said Dr. Solomon.


HIDDEN STASH is owned by BBN Racing LLC,  a syndicate put together in part by Braxton Lynch, a daughter of Richie and Annie Jones of Unionville, Pa.

Richie Jones was a partner in Walnut Green before his death and Annie Jones owns an interest in a number of top Eventing horses.

Charlie Fenwick, a well known steeplechasing owner and a former multiple winner of the Maryland Hunt Cup as a jockey, is a member of the BBN syndicate.

Hidden Stash will break from post position 13 and is also listed at odds of 50-1,

Hidden Stash is multiple graded stakes placed with his most impressive performance coming in the Tampa Bay Derby when he an away prior to the race and still placed second.

Hidden Stash has two firsts, one second and two thirds from seven starts.
