Known Agenda drew post one, every year Pletcher seems to have one coming down the lane

drifting badly to the outside, do you think he can fix that by Derby day. (Run straight and endurance to finish strong)

If he's inside Horses he could throttle.

Pletcher's got 4 horses in this race, which is a lot.   I have made no secret that I like ALL his other horses better than I like Known Agenda.  

I'm just sorry that KA got post #1 because, even though the gate situation has been corrected with the new gate, some people will get off him and I was hoping his odds would descend, not ascend.  He's the "wrong Pletcher" IMHO and I was astonished to see his odds at 6-1.

THX, Dogs, I missed doing this the last couple of years.  This Is the best Pedigree crop of the 21st century

More Home Breds  might be a leading indicter of this and only time will tell imo.

Not all can get 10f ,but almost all are well bred no matter their style and the conduit mare profile Classification

is the best, no speed Conduits (B) type this year and great Nicks within the first 5 generations, that most don't pay attention to.

Many lightly raced that can jump leaps and bounds on May first.

I came here many many years ago to learn the breeding side of tb racing from you.

I use to think you cut yourself  shaving when you were talking about..Nicks

I see where a Guru says Known Agenda boar out Slightly in the stretch in his last race.

I thought it was more than slightly, anybody want to jump in with their thoughts.

Where does slightly end?

Definitely came out some after brushing with S&S.The fact that Irad went to the whip may have had an influence
