Steve Asmussen Hoping To Win Kentucky Derby 2020

Trainer Steve Asmussen has won a lot of races in his illustrious career. Will Kentucky Derby 2020 be his next one? Also, Asmussen has won more races than any other trainer in the country. As a matter of fact, he could end up breaking the record for all-time wins by a trainer by 2021. Even though Asmussen is already in the Hall of Fame, the legendary trainer has never fielded a horse that won the Kentucky Derby.

I get asked that question all the time,” Asmussen said when asked if people ask him if he has ever win the Kentucky Derby.

“The fellow traveler in the next seat on the airplane asks; the cabbie asks on the way to Belmont Park; the waiter asks after describing the day’s specials. Nobody asks if you’ve ever won the Preakness, or the Kentucky Oaks, or the Breeders’ Cup Classic, or the Dubai World Cup or the Pegasus World Cup. They all ask, “Have you ever won the Kentucky Derby?”

“When somebody asks me that,” Asmussen explained, “I say, ‘No, I haven’t won it, but I’ve started more horses in the Derby without winning it than anybody else.’”

Some believe it could happen this year because Asmussen has a talented group of three-year-olds that will likely be at the Kentucky Derby in May.

“It’s there,” Asmussen said about a Derby victory, as if he could make it out clearly, somewhere in the distance. “It’s in the works. It just hasn’t happened yet.”
