YouTube Mine That Bird Derby. And what (which is super hard to visually follow MTB at the turn and then into and up the rail. Even the track race caller can't see it. Even when colt is ..out front.

Then watch Sainthood. The winner gets bumped by another runner causing winner to bump into Sainthood BTW.

Hoofnote and anecdotal. The chart does not have claim of foul or inquiry.

But the extended longer Youtube J Ruby video at the very end has announcer saying results are unchanged.

Well there were 12 horses in the Steaks Stakes and at the rate we’re going we might not have many more than that in the derby.  He does have La Troienne and Pocahontas where I like to see them in his pedigree but I have this nagging feeling that Pletcher was dodging the ones at the Fairgrounds and looking for a softer spot for him in Florence.  He ran him in a maiden at Gulfstream then 5 weeks later a maiden at the Fairgrounds then 6 weeks later in the Jeff Ruby.  The Louisiana Derby was only a week earlier.

Just look at it as these trainers have owners that want to go to the Derby. And they place the horses in races where it can best be accomplished.

These guys were all mentored by Wayne D Lukas and his son. They learned about the horse and the client'. Wayne's son Jeff actually taught Pletcher the ropes.

Looks like Cox's "other horse" is working up a storm at CDX.  Couldn't run ITM at 1-3/16th but can do 1-1/8....I think that's his limit OR he is very inconsistent.   But he's fast, no doubt about that, look at his DI.     DI= 11.00   CD = 1.17
 

Mandaloun looked super in company going 3/4 from 5/8 this a m at Churchill Downs in 35.81  58.94  111.47 drawing off readily around turn pulling up after 7/8 125.48.
 
Derby favorite Essential Quality just after track opened at 5:15 a m in company 5/8 from 1/2 47.53  59.96 out 113.46.

 Soup and Sandwich with Tyler G up had a target went 5/8 35.67 59.35 going easy galloped out strong 112.13 125.03.

Those riders come late with 2 weeks to go. Because they have to leave their home track.
