Kris Kin Hopes to Add to Derby Success in King George

Kris Kin will seek to become the third winner of the Vodafone Derby (Eng-I) in the last 10 years who went on to capture the King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Diamond Stakes (Eng-I) at Ascot, England on Saturday.

Trained by Sir Michael Stoute, Kris Kin will be ridden in the £750,000 race by Kieren Fallon, who was victorious aboard Golan in last year's renewal. Favored in the 14-horse field for the 1 1/2-mile grass test is Irish Derby (Ire-I) winner Alamshar. Millenary has been entered but the 6-year-old will run only if the turf has been softened by rain.

3 -- Grandera, M. J. Kinane
4 -- Indian Creek, T. Quinn
