Kentucky Derby Day

Posted in Uncategorized on May 5, 2012 by a4synapse

I bet (in no particular order):

Went The Day Well: I think he’ll get the distance, love the jockey, love the trainer; think he has the speed and the maneuverability; some question about the surface

Bodemeister: Love the jockey, love the trainer, know he has the speed, pretty sure he’ll get the distance and I think he has the intangibles; will to win and good sense

Union Rags: most everyone I’ve read thinks he might not get the distance because of his sire, Dixie Union; I’m thinking he will because of his trainer (love the trainer, love this jockey); I think he’s a big strong maneuverable horse with tactical speed; he won’t get intimidated and will lay it down in the stretch

Dullahan: loved his last win in the Blue Grass; know he can get the distance; like the jockey and the trainer; don’t know if he’s fast enough, but he’ll be there.

At 5:43, the track appears to be holding up speed; winners are coming off of stalking trips, and one track record was set today by a filly running close to the pace.
