2012 Kentucky Derby: Done Talking Will Arrive At Churchill Downs Sunday

The Kentucky Derby-bound Done Talking had his final pre-Derby workout in Baltimore Satuday morning at Laurel Park in Baltimore. The horse will ship to Churchill Downs on Sunday.

Sheldon Russell was the jockey as Done Talking ran five furlongs in a shade over one minute. Russell is the horse's regular rider and the top jockey in Maryland, according to Chris Korman of the Baltimore Sun.

Done Talking is the first Triple Crown horse trained by Hamilton Smith. Done Talking is likely to have 50-1 odds against him at the Derby, but Smith has high hopes.

"I am looking forward to a great race out of him. I really am," Smith said. "If we get pace up front that should help us. Naturally you need to have a good trip with all those horses in there. With his running style you worry about getting shut off but if we can be mid-pack early, about eighth or ninth and relax, we might shock everybody."

Done Talking may receive some additional looks at Churchill Downs over the next week, as the Derby draws closer.
