A 'local' contender in the Kentucky Derby

Wicked Strong is a favorite with strong Central NY connections

Wicked Strong is the number 3 favorite in Saturday's Kentucky Derby, but he has strong local ties.

The 3-year old was bred by Skaneateles attorney Bill Lynn, and SU Board of Trustees member Peter Horvitz is a 15% owner.

Both are expected at Churchill downs to see 'their' horse run.

The Kentucky Derby is at 6:24 on Saturday evening, with NBC3 coverage starting at 4pm
