A story posted early Sunday morning surveyed the probable starters for the Group 2 U.A.E. Derby but contained erroneous information about Genten, saying he hadn't started yet this year.
In 2012, Genten, a Kentucky-bred, has made two starts, both on the dirt. He won on Jan 5, and on Feb. 18, he stretched out to a mile in the Hyacinth Stakes. Coming from far off the pace after breaking from post 15, Genten finished second by a half-length to Darley's Fleet Street. This race was reportedly Sheik Mohammed's first official win as an owner in Japan. The Hyacinth is not a graded race but is still an important race in Japan -- horses must qualify with earnings to be eligible.
