The preparation was over.
It was 5:15 a.m. Saturday morning when Doug O'Neill arrived at the Churchill Downs barn of his prized 3-year-old Goldencents. It would be 10 hours of anticipation before the gates sprang open for Kentucky Derby 139 and O'Neill would find out if the bay colt would reward the trainer his second consecutive victory in the world's most famous race.
