Not to mention the 38% chance of something else happening before the Derby.   Haha...

As winter would probably tell you, the “official” Kentucky derby site is anything but official.

I have no words.  Actually, I do, but the forum software would bleep them out.

I see some sites are predicting 13 or 14  pretenders will be 20-1 or higher.

One thing I'll look for from this group, are the ones that are running wide in preps

that draw inside, might save more ground in this field, there are a couple I have My eye on.

Aren’t there usually a dozen over 20-1 anyway?

I was upset about Rispoli being removed from his horse. 

Now this?  I truly liked the corrales/sainthood duo:


"Pletcher, who won the Derby in 2010 with Super Saver and 2017 with Always Dreaming, has riders lined up for all but Sainthood.
“We will wait until after the final breezes and monitor who is available,” Pletcher said."

Here is a angle I look at when I'm putting my tickets together after the draw.

I like to look at all of the May foals to see their progress from January to Derby Day

They are a little bit behind in their Growth and need to show they are Improving.

If I have to choose between 2  horses and they are close in my scoring ,I'll pick the Youngest ,

especially to choose between May and Jan. or Feb. foals.

This year only one May Foal : 5/15 *foal   dam 9 yrs old-3rd crop 1st winner
Sainthood....
