(Louisville, KY) - The unlikely winner of this year's Kentucky Derby will not pursue the Triple Crown.

The owner of Rich Strike said the colt will skip the Preakness on May 21st and aim for a return for the Belmont on June 11th. He says this will give Rich Strike more recovery time.

The horse was the second biggest long shot to ever win the Kentucky Derby.
