What’s next for Bolt D’Oro after Kentucky Derby loss

Despite holding an initial lead during the Kentucky Derby, Bolt D’Oro lost steam halfway through the race and finished 12th. His owners say he was checked for any heart or lung issues, but seems to be fine.

First-place finisher Justify won the race on some of the worst, muddiest conditions in the derby’s history.

Owner-trainer Mick Ruis told the Los Angeles Times that Bolt D’Oro started strong, but tired halfway through, and his jockey didn’t want to push the horse past his limits.
