Best speed figs of the bunch.

I don't rely on speed figures for classic distance races, but this is only 1-1/8 so I would figure it in, but not base my wagers on it. 
If Andy Beyer's record picking KY Derby winners is any testament, speed players never beat the game when you get into longer routes.  That's got to be bred into them.  He never got that memo. 

I'm gutted about Roman Centurian, but glad because I'll get to see him race elsewhere maybe the Belmont, for which he would be very good.

I don't use Beyer Speed Figs on DRF either. I'm used to the Bris speed figs which break down to 3 segments of the race. So far i've been doing better than usual with them. 

Can't see Medina Spirit dropping this edition. Not a Baffert fan but i can see him with Medina, Defunded 1, 2 and Rock Your World 3rd.

I had Roman in my tri's but glad they're not not pulling a Dale Romans w/ Sitting On Go, he's ruining the poor colt. Centurian, i can see running in the Preakness in 6 weeks.

I actually LIKE this horse better than Hozier or maybe even his other one, actually.  
And not giving up on Speilburg, forgive that last race, horse was a cool mlllion as a yearling..you don't dump that.

Getting $$ back is sometimes a win :)

btw, Roman Centurian is now a possible next week in the Ark Derby.....hoping he can upset Concert Tour.  Looks like a small field, with 2 Baffert colts.....hoping someone unexpected joins the fray!

I don't worry too much about Concert Tour because there's some horses in the Derby that have reason to make Bafffert nervous this year.  One of them raced against his horse at SA on Sat and beat him.  I don't know if anyone noticed but the horse was bred by Ron McAnally.    one of the good guys in racing.

Sometimes it's not good to listen to the pre-race hype. I was reading that Rock Your World was not looking great working on the dirt. Yeah, okay. He sure looked good winning on it! Concert Tour will have company on the front end.
