We have three major preps today, but I believe all eyes will be on Santa Anita. Justify has generated a lot of interest, and has even become a polarizing figure of sorts. It's almost like he hasn't paid his dues, so some want to see the little whipperstapper get his comeuppance for leapfrogging more proven colts in the Derby rankings. Once thing though, one can only skate by for so long. Today it's put up or shut up for his connections and fans. I love what I've seen so far, and I hope for a clean, safe race, that is equal to the hype. Good luck to all in all the races today, and I hope the weather doesn't render all these races moot, as far as analyzing the Derby is concerned.

I'm just doing a p/sh wager on Pepe Tono and Jimmy Chila

Win bet on Instilled Regard.

I think Bolt makes a race out of it but ultimately can’t catch Justify.  Those two finish miles ahead of the rest.  Pretty much unbettable; maybe a straight tri on Justify-Bolt-Instilled Regard.

Can anybody "Justify" the final time with the $50,000 AOC race 30 minutes prior?

I can't; some guy on youtube put up a 23 minute "justification" for his 110 beyer projection.  search youtube justify beyer santa anita derby...you should find it.  I should probably link but I don't do that for fear of Zeus.

My standard answer is homogenization or if that doesn't fit, mother nature did it.

Non winners $10K etc and 123+change final time., 50K inflated tag for big day of racing. First six furlongs fast and final time very delta~ish. Par~ish. What is your inference?
