Constitution's Hidden Stash to break from post 13 in Kentucky Derby (G1)
Wednesday, April 28, 2021
Hidden Stash will take his shot at history in Saturday's $3 million Kentucky Derby (G1) when he breaks from post 13 in a field of 20 3-year-olds.

Trained by Vickie Oliver for BBN Racing LLC, Hidden Stash placed in both the Tampa Bay Derby (G2) and Sam F. Davis S. (G3) this year and broke his maiden in November over the Churchill Downs surface.

“I think every time we’ve stretched him out, he’s run better,” Oliver said of running the Derby distance for the first time. “I think everything about him is a mile and a quarter – with pace, which hopefully we get more of in the Derby.” 

As far as the post position, Oliver was satisfied with that as well.

“We’re happy with it. We wanted to be somewhere in the middle and that’s exactly where we got,” she said.

Hidden Stash has proven a shrewd buy for his owner. Sold for $50,000 at the 2019 Keeneland September Yearling sale, he has earned $231,062.

Hidden Stash will be ridden by Rafael Bejarano, who has been aboard in four of the colt's last five outings.

Hidden Stash was bred in Kentucky by Rhineshire Farm and is from the same family as graded stakes-winning fillies Caress and Country Cat.

Constitution, who finished 2020 as the champion Second-Crop sire, has had an excellent 2021 and leads the Third-Crop sire list by black type horses with 11, graded stakes horses with 6, and winners with 49.

The Derby is race 12 on Saturday’s stakes-laden card. Races will be televised live from noon through 7:30 p.m. ET, with the Derby at 6:57.
