Samraat, Wicked Strong, Uncle Sigh prep for Derby

NEW YORK -

The New York-based trio of Samraat, Wicked Strong and Uncle Sigh had its final major workouts Friday for the Kentucky Derby.

Samraat worked a mile at Aqueduct, and Wicked Strong and Uncle Sigh breezed through 7 and 5 furlongs, respectively, on Belmont Park's training track.

Samraat won his first five races before finishing second to Wicked Strong in the Grade 1 Wood Memorial. Uncle Sigh was 1-3-0 in four starts before finishing fifth in the Wood.

Wicked Strong trainer Jimmy Jerkens says the horse will leave New York on a van for Louisville on Saturday. The 140th Kentucky Derby will be run May 3 at Churchill Downs.
