Brocco gets OK to run in Derby

April 21, 1994|By New York Daily News

NEW YORK -- Santa Anita Derby winner Brocco made it through a five-furlong workout yesterday at Churchill Downs, clearing the way for him to start in the Kentucky Derby.

Brocco was placed on the vet's list at Santa Anita following the Santa Anita Derby when a veterinarian representing the state racing commission detected some unsoundness in his right front leg. He became ineligible to race until completing a workout to the satisfaction of a state or track vet, which he did yesterday.
