LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- When trainer Michael Matz arrived at Churchill Downs, he couldn't resist taking a stroll to Barn No. 42, where his Kentucky Derby winner, Barbaro, was stabled in May.

"I walked over there because it will always be a special place to me," Matz said yesterday, as he stood one barn away, where Round Pond, his entry in Saturday's Breeders' Cup Distaff, is stabled. "They have some French horse in his stall now."
