Triple Crown nomination list grows by 6

BY foxsports • April 1, 2010

Gotham Stakes runner-up Yawanna Twist is among six late additions to the Triple Crown.

The owners of Yawanna Twist, Raise the Bridle, Carnivore, Game Ball, Posse Power and Thomas Baines paid a $6,000 fee to add their horses to the list of Triple Crown contenders.

Yawanna Twist is owned by Steel Your Face Stables. The horse is trained by Rick Dutrow, who led Big Brown to victories in the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness in 2008. The 3-year-old is entered in Saturday's Illinois Derby.

Raise the Bridle is owned by Double Eagle Ranch and Buena Suerta Equine, who co-owned last year's Derby winner Mine That Bird.

There are now 372 Triple Crown nominees with a month to go before the May 1 Derby.
