May 6 — The 142nd Kentucky Derby is on Saturday, when everyone will be watching what happens on the track. But it’s the horses’ bloodlines that are remarkable this year. Tapit has been leading sire for years and has three colts in the race but all the buzz is around up-and-coming sire Uncle Mo, whose first round of offspring will also have three colts in the race. The favorites are Nyquist, Mo Tom and Outwork. Mo’s recent success has doubled the horses stud fee giving him a valuation his owners say is $100 million. Bloomberg’s Michael Barr reports.
