BOISE -- Idaho is about to end a string of nearly 10 Kentucky Derbies without an entry.

The last Idaho horse ran in the 2003 derby. Hagerman's Buddy Gill, with Boise Hall of Fame Jockey Gary Stevens aboard, came from well back to finish 6th.

"Rousing Sermon" owned by Larry and Marianne Williams of Parma has qualified for the 138th running.

The thoroughbred has been racing in trials in California and just qualified. The 3-year-old will now try  to win horse racing's most prestigious race and spectacle.

You can watch it live Saturday, May 5th, on channel 7. Les Bois Park will simulcast the derby with the betting windows open.
