+ All.

The field in the post parade had all jocks and out riders wearing dark/black protective virus masks in the Post Parade.

Loading into the gate the favorite #6 and #4 balked at loading into the starting gate, as both assistant starters were wearing white masks. Other assistant starters wore black.

Yes, of course, the horse can still win....but at this point, we're looking at what's needed to win the Derby, and a horse this late in the game, in his 2nd race, showing so little regardless of trouble, simply will not win the Derby.

Both of Todd's horses were unprepared for the 2 turn stakes race vs. more experienced colts, but as he said, there were no allowance races to enter....thus forced to run to see if capable of competing on the trail.  He must have sent out word that PF was ready, able, and magnificent to have his odds so low.....he just didn't know, imho.

Simply due to being from Pletcher's barn, the futures pool and Circa's pool reflected PF's participation....

Tiz the Law finished 6th in the BC Classic following my citing his 2nd place unusual footing shuffle trip in the Derby stretch.

And retired because he was not a runner.

Horses are put into their stall head first. Then turned around to face out. Don't back em in.

Starting gates solve this by loading rear.

 The Holy Bull favorite going face/front into gate saw the white protective mask and would not gate load bravely.
