Breaking: Hall of Fame jockey Mike Smith to replace Corey Lanerie aboard Cutting Humor in @KentuckyDerby. More to come.
Bummer. Now I bet his odds drop to about 15 to 20-1.
He was already getting plenty of talk as a dark horse for the win but I’ve been burned before by the Sunland. Can’t do it.
Me too. Hence anyone??? I only have him underneath but would be surprised if he finishes in the top 10.
My opinion? Mike should have told Teflon, "No thanks."
I felt Corey would have done just fine if not better than $$ but it was probably some uninformed fat cats decision who didn't realize Corey is the top jock at Chuchill. Hope I get proven wrong :)
It's a rare day, indeed, that Mikey will hurt your chances. He certainly won't hurt Cutting Humor's chances. I also agree about your assessment of Lanerie. Underrated & really knows his way around Church.
I simply thought it would be ultra-classy if Big Money said, "No."
Of course, the critical question is whether or not Cutting Humor is good enough.
I was thinking of playing since Corey likes to Borail, but MS won't do that, not sure if I would play it now.
