Kentucky Derby 144Only 5 weeks away. Big prep races yesterday.
FL Derby - Audible
UAE Derby - MendelssohnAdvertisement
Apr 2, 18, 08:57 AM #2Mendelssohn was impressive-big strider...20+ length win seemed effortless.
Apr 5, 18, 08:46 AM #3My favorite prep weekend is almost upon us. Wood Memorial, Blue Grass Stakes and the Santa Anita Derby will all run in the span of about 90 mins on Saturday.
All three races will be on NBC Sports Network.

I guess I'll just go in with my grandstand tix and sneak my way upstairs or to the finish line!

Justify looks great and at this point looks like one that will definitely figure in to Derby wagering for me.
I’d love to see a Blue Grass Stakes winner in the circle at Churchill again, but as impressive as Good Magic looked, I’m not sure I’m super impressed with that field and he was pretty disappointing back in his last race in March. We’ll see but I’m not expecting a lot.

May 3, 18, 11:53 AM #15Well, we are two days away! Thought I'd bring this thread back up.
Looks like weather could play a part in this year's KY Derby. There looks to be a handful or so horses that don't mind a muddy track. If it is an off track I really like My Boy Jack.
If it's a fast track I like a combination of Audible, Good Magic and Mangnum Moon. I just can't bet a 5/2-3/1 shot, who is under Apollo's Curse (Justify) in a 20 horse field. I also like how Lone Sailor has looked in his works leading up to Saturday. Not sure if he can win, but might be worth a shot at putting in 2nd and 3rd in a trifecta.
Good luck to all!
