pirit of JEFFERSON and FARMER'S ADVOCATE Racing/Sports Wednesday, May 15, 2013 119 By BOB MADISON sports@spiritofjefferson.com Dallas Stewart was overshad- owed by fellow trainer Shug Mc- Gaughey. He didn't care. Stew- art's smile was the same size as the one worn by the popular man who had just won his first Ken- tucky Derby. : McGaughey was roundly con- gratulated for his 2013 Kentucky Derby win with Orb. Stewart was roundly congratu- lated for the second-place finish of his longshot, Golden Soul. The bold chestnut had just rewarded his backers with the money and prestige a 35-1 shot pays and brings. The outcomes in this year's Kentucky Derby had been victo- ries for the little guys of racing. Shug had his first Kentucky Derby victory. Dallas Stewart hadn't won the race. But he had the next best thing -- a second-place and vin- dication for running an outsider that came into The Derby with only 14 qualifying points. Second place, mud-soaked though it was, had made for a $400,000 payday for Stewart and Golden Soul's owner, Charles Fipke. Like Orb, The Derby winner, Golden Soul had come through the mud-throwing traffic to pass ev- erything in front of him except Joel Rosario on the new champion. Golden Soul was covered in so much mud it was difficult to tell he had been a golden chestnut when the race started. His jock- ey, Robby Albarado, was equally covered. The twosome had eaten mud and water for most of the 10-furlong distance. How was it that Golden Soul was such a longshot in the field of 19 three-year-old hopefuls? He hadn't won any of his three races this year. His earnings for 2013 were just $84,000. In five lifetime starts, he had just one win and two seconds. But owner Fipke had noted that Golden Soul had been a close-up second in his only other race at the Churchill Downs track. In fact, the first race of his life had JAMIE NEWELL Longshot Golden Soul finished second in the Kentucky Derby.
