LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- We caught up with Dallas Stewart, trainer for Derby contender Tom's Ready, on the backside of Churchill during Derby week. 

Stewart says Tom's Ready is looking good going into the Derby. 

"He's done well here," Stewart said. "He came out of New Orleans in good shape, and he's come up here and he's trained well, so we're hoping for a good rest of the week."

Stewart says his horse is getting better and better, and is ready to make another leap after finishing second to Gun Runner. 

"We feel like he's made some leaps since he's been here, he's run against nice horses this winter, he's competed very well," Stewart said. "He's made some strides forward and we're looking for another stride on Derby Day."
