Nice big field
$5 exacta box 6-11-12 = $30
Got a feeling Billy could make some noise here but can't bet em all
Machismo ran a sneaky good race in the FOY. They are considering the Ark. Derby with him as well due to the weather, but there may be similar concerns next weekend in Arkansas.
Keep an eye on whether the Keeneland strip is carrying speed today. I wouldn't rule out one like Kanthaka right now.
$1 Exacta Box with Blended Citizen, Flameaway, and Good Magic.
Blended Citizen needs at least a third to get into the Derby, so hopefully he gets it.
I'll take a flyer ATB on Gotta Go. Ba-da-boom.
Just my pet peeve, but I REALLY wish people would put the horse's names down when making picks, instead of just numbers.
They do have names. HOrses are not just numbers on a program.
I guess for me it's a "respect" thing. Not like motor vehicles where you get called by numbers.

In addition, I resent having to look at previous thread messages or another site to learn what numbers they are referring to. Same with me for horses' initials, nicknames. I don't want to take my time to make some conversion between what I read vs. what is intended.
Pletcher could get the hat trick with Marconi joining Bandini and Monba out of the FOY based on previous preps. If you go by Pletcher's sterling work with AP Indy's in the Bluegrass, Marconi should finish 5th.
Like you, I'm going to use him in a box--just not an exacta.
