Only 20, however, will make it to the gate in the Kentucky Derby. Known as "the most exciting two minutes in sports," the Kentucky Derby is racing's holy grail and every horseman's ultimate goal. Just to get a horse to the gate in the world's most prestigious race defies all odds. The path to the first Saturday in May remains long and unpredictable. Euphoria and heartbreak abound. But as a racetracker, you're prepared for everything. Follow six diverse trainers--as well as the mighty Barbaro--as they jockey for position along the 2006 Kentucky Derby trail. From Hot Springs in Arkansas to Dubai in the United Arab Emirates, you're along for the ride with the dedicated men and women that make the "sport of kings" tick. From a personal standpoint, our journey turned out to be more than we bargained for as we became involved with Barbaro, one of the most famous racehorses of the last 60 years. Since May 2006, he has been featured on the cover of The New York Times more than 50 times, as well in Time, Newsweek, Sports Illustrated, and publications all over the world. Although the rest of the world might consider Barbaro the heart of the 2006 Derby trail story, our diverse cast of compelling characters makes this roller coaster ride unforgettable. It's "Spellbound at the Racetrack." So make your bets, cross your fingers, and mark your calendar, because it will all be settled come The First Saturday in May. (Truly Indie) Expand
