Since it's still April, I will flesh out horses I like.     Despite I am only playing the KY Derby this year on paper only. 

I will have 2 tickets, one for slop and one for a fast, dry track.    I have not re-visited Classic Causeway's re-entry into the Derby yet though 

TOP part of my ticket 
Simplification - I know it was a weird race but his FOY impressed me so much, stalked in midpack then turned on the afterburners in the stretch, everything I look for in running style of a horse in the KY Derby. 
White Alborrio
Messier



Next part of my ticket: 
C
harge It - moved him from the win spot on 4/26; may toss from my ticket altogether, no race at 2, no race before July at 2, and I worry that he will be disturbed by all the big hats and commotion at CDX, with an already hard to handle horse who may not be tractable   May replace with Barber Road.  
Tawny Port 
Classic Causeway - added him back in 4/26 since he re-joined the gate; he has excellent gate skills


Looking at longshots (have to be high odds horses ) for my exotics ticket, Zozos, TawnyPort  (if I move him from above) Pioneer of Medina, and Crown Pride look pretty acceptable so far

...but I don't know about the track condition yet.  If muddy I would think you'd have to use Barber Road for instance? Heck even if not muddy.   

Obviously, low odds horses like Epicenter, who you'd probably want to put on an exotics ticket, becasue obviously he does not qualify as a longshot.   I may not put him in the win spot though.

After his stellar work on the 22nd, Charge It has vaulted most of my early picks. I hope I can get a good price on him as well.

I moved him out of my win spot today.  At least, for now.

TY.  Most of it was about Mo Donegal, unfortunately. But Charge It is a beauty
