–Alexis Barba, the trainer of Make Music for Me
Congratulations Alexis on your fourth place win at Saturday’s Kentucky Derby and for representing the ladies!
Alexis is the fourteenth female trainer to make it to the Kentucky Derby. To date no woman has ever won a derby. In 1992, Shelley Riley finished second with Casual Lies and in 2004 Kristin Mulhall finished third with Imperialism.
If you didn’t see the race, Make Music For Me (love the name BTW) was in last place in the 20-horse field with a half-mile left, but the 30-1 shot colt finished with a bang and came in fourth place! Way to come from behind!
