Befitting its history as a significant prep for the spring classics, the last 10 renewals of the Florida Derby have yielded three winners of the Kentucky Derby and an eventual runner-up in the Run for the Roses.
Barbaro (2006), Big Brown (2008) and Orb (2013) all used the Florida Derby as a springboard to success at Churchill Downs, while Ice Box (2010) went on to finish second in the first leg of the Triple Crown.
Trainers Nick Zito and Todd Pletcher have been particularly successful in the Florida Derby in recent years. Zito saddled High Fly (2005), Ice Box, and Dialed In (2011) to victory, while Pletcher won with Scat Daddy (2007), Constitution (2014), and Materiality (2015).
