Excerpt from Houston Chronicle- Full Story
There's Dan Hendricks, the paralyzed trainer who is saddling his first Derby horse in Brother Derek.

There's Michael Matz, another first-time trainer and former Olympic equestrian and fully certified American hero who helped rescue several passengers from the burning wreckage of a United Airlines jet that plowed into an Iowa cornfield in 1989. He is responsible for the unbeaten Barbaro.



There's Beverly Lewis, horse racing's doyenne who returns to Louisville alone, having lost her husband of 58 years to heart failure in February, before their colt Point Determined had revealed his Derby potential.
