Notes: The impressive G3 Illinois Derby winner is one of the new shooters planning to face Kentucky Derby hero Orb in the 2 nd jewel of the Triple Crown and his presence will make for some terrific subplots. First, there s the fact that the Claiborne Farm and Adele B. Dilschneid er homebred was born and raised on the same Kentucky farm as Orb, whose owners are long-time Claiborne clients. Departing and Orb were, in fact, raised in the same paddock. And then there s the possibilit y that the hero of the 4/20 Illinois Derby, which was deliberate ly excluded from the new Kentucky Derby qualifying points system due to a nasty dispute between Churchill Downs and Hawthorne Racecourse , could defeat the roseate run s victor and make for CDI s worst public relations nightmare. With a record of 5-4-0-1, Departing is a formidable opponent for Orb and was flattered when Golden Soul, who finished a length and a half behind him in 4 th in the G2 Louisiana Derby on 3/30, ran huge for place honors on the 1 st Saturday in May. Patiently conditione d by Albert Stall, Jr., the gelding progressed from his debut MSW win in December to scores in an optional claimer over the same Fair Grounds course and a minor stakes at Sam Houston. For his efforts, he has bankrolled 628,000. Departing is a son of War Front out of the Pulpit mare Leave and was foaled on April 1, 2010
