BEDFORD, N.Y. -- Upstart, a horse born and trained in Bedford and owned by Ralph Evans of Greenwich, Conn., mostly trailed the pack at the Kentucky Derby in Louisville, Ky., Saturday.

The horse, a thoroughbred who was raised at Sunnyfield Farms in Bedford, finished 18th out of 20 horses at the Annual Running of the Roses.

The race was run by American Pharoah, which beat out Firing Line and Dortmund to win the first leg of the Triple Crown.

Sunnyfield can be found in the hills of Bedford sitting on more than 230 acres of land near the corner of Routes 172 and 22. Horse lovers come to the farm from all over the country to learn the trade, hone their skills and check out horses for breeding. Other services include boarding, stabling and instruction for any level.
