Kentucky Derby Horse has Connections to NCTA Member We Miss Artie ... will race in the Derby this year and Hubert Vester, of Nashville plans to travel to watch the race. . The horse is the colt of a horse owned by Vester. . Vester said he purchased a broodmare, Russian Bride, in 2001 and bred her her in 2004, to the 2000 Derby winner, Fusaichi Pegasus. . Athena's Gift was born in 2005, sold as a yearling at the 2006 Keeneland September Yearling Sale in Lexington, Kentucky. She was bought by Canadian, Richard Lister. . Vester said that Athena's Gift had a career ending injury, was retired and became a broodmare. When Lister retired in 2013, he sold off his band of brood mares at the Keenland November Breeding Stock Sale. That is when Hubert Vester bought back the mare, Athena's Gift. . We Miss Artie is her colt, sired by *Artie Schiller. Vester said. We Miss Artie is now owned by Kenneth and Sarah Ramsey and trained by Todd Pletcher, that colt is running this Saturday, the first Saturday in May. . When We Miss Artie was born, there were around 37,000 Thoroughbreds born the same year. Only three-year- olds can compete in the Derby, so a horse gets one chance only. We Miss Artie won the Spiral Stakes at Turfway Park in March, which qualifies him for the 2014 Derby. . "A horse only gets one shot to win a Derby" Vester said. "The next year, he's too old." . Vester considers himself a small Thoroughbred owner and breeder, but he's well known in the industry. In 2011 he was named the North Carolina Thoroughbred Association's owner and breeder of the year. . We Miss You Artie was bred for the turf, so Vester said the dirt track might prove to be a slight handicap. But he is proud that the horse has qualified to run this year in the Derby, having won the Spiral Stakes. . "If he ends up dead last, you still got a special horse," he said. "Anything can happen." . Hubert Vester plans to attend the May 3rd Derby and is excited about being there. . "I always said I wouldn't go unless I had one in it and I guess this is as close as I'll get," Vester said. . E. S. Williams *The sire Artie Schiller has North Carolina roots. He was bred by and owned by the late Tom Walsh. His wife Denise of Southern Pines, NC, still own shares in the stallion.
