3 Million reasons a field of 20.
Via KDY press: With a record $3 million in prize money now guaranteed for the Kentucky Derby, the winner will receive the event’s highly sought-after gold trophy and a $1.86 million payday.
Insert..Jock & trainer share, beyond prestige is $186,000. A piece.

Sole Volante. He hasn't raced since June. My saying is always "fit horses win G1 races" and I just don't know what Biancone is doing w/him. He raced on 6/20 and didn't work til 7/31. And then, on turf. Gosh. Something is not right here, folks. Horses competing for a TC race are not trained like this. This is highly not normal. Horse should have been back to scheduled workouts by end of June, not end of July! I've never seen anything like this. Horse has tons of stamina.
We all pretty much are calling this one the Kentucky Derby ..Unplugged..Diet...No trans fats..
Dogs just gonna hang back. In real life I'm a laid back and easy going man.
This year..Easy Goer approach.
I posted in order to get other people's "thoughts" on a few of these, that's all.
and oh no, they are allowing $0.10 supers. GRRRR~! Pools will be super diluted.
Well there won't be any value there at all. So guess I'll be sticking to exactas and tris.
1X19×18×17 × .10 =$581.40
That's just a Trifecta.
Dogs!.........Rock Hard Ten? C'mon man, RHT can't even touch the breeding of TTL. Not jumping of the Tiz bandwagon. Maybe he won't win but if you leave him off your tickets i'm thinking its a big mistake. Other than last years debacle, the 5 prior favorites fared up to their odds.
Unless an injury derails my picks sticking w/Tiz, 1000 Words, Ny Traffic. trifecta. Might use Enforceable to clean up the super.
