    Bigger prizes await for this one, which finished the regular season 31-18 overall, 28-11 in league play and 16-7 at Brandt Park.

    LOUISVILLE, Ky. — A horse with a humble pedigree. A couple of working stiff owners. A 77-year-old trainer with his first Kentucky Derby horse.

    Even Hollywood couldn’t have made this up.
