Barbaro Trainer Michael Matz Bringing Union Rags to Kentucky Derby Bleacher Report.flv
It's 5:30 in the morning at the beautiful Palm Meadows training facility in Florida and upon our arrival, we find world-renowned horse trainer Michael Matz is already hard at work. We caught up with Matz a day before the Florida Derby where his front-runner, Union Rags, would run in an important preliminary to racings' Triple Crown. This is not unfamiliar territory for Matz. He was, of course, the trainer of Barbaro. "Why We Watch" spends time with Matz at his training facility just a day before the Florida Derby. Although Union Rags would lose, he came on notably faster than the two front-runners. The extra 1/8 of a mile should prove to make the difference that Union Rags needs to win the Kentucky Derby.
