Lets pull the trigger on the Preakness if she is healthy, this horse is unstoppable, forget about the restricted female races. Nobody cares about virtual walkovers at 1-9 where the race is over at the first turn.

Airoforce draws the rail and is current 4-1 favorite in the American Turf on Derby day. J Lep is back in the irons.
The only one I'm familiar with in this field is Selenite... so?

Love PP#2 for SBN...surrounded by other closers that he can get the jump on...save ground behind GunRunner and the other speed like Nyquist Outwork Danzing Candy Mohaymen etc...then swing wide turning for home...
Good luck to SBN, #2 PP should be good for him in the Derby. Should be rolling late to try to run down Destin in the stretch.
Good luck to Destin, I like his #9 PP draw. I believe he will win the Kentucky Derby.
In all of Lani's races as a 2 year old, he went around right hand turns. Breaks his maiden in 3rd race then comes right back 6 days later and wins allowance. Is done for the year. Comes back in just under 3 months as a 3 year old in a stakes race against pretty good company, and ...(it is the first time around a left hand turn) ... makes a 6 wide strong winning move, but ... DOES NOT CHANGE LEADS. Winning time is 1:35 & 2 and without changing leads is only 2 3/4 off the win ... if he changes leads he wins. Comes back in a month and wins UAE Derby. (I am not convinced he was fully cranked for Dubai race either - just wanted to finish in top 2 to qualify for Derby). I am probably wrong, but I think this horse is sitting on a big race.
It is confirmed Lani will NOT run with Lasix in the Kentucky Derby, will use the same routine the connections always use on race day. Only the 3rd horse in 20 years to run in the Kentucky Derby without Lasix.
First time through the comparative pace data and ONE thing shows through, and it is not unexpected: there is a BIG loss of stamina in this field. Usually the deceleration rates (3rd fraction velocity divided by 2nd call velocity) hover around 97% and only 2 in this field come close to that. Many regressions over their last 2 starts as well including some of the short priced colts. As far as SINGLE lines, Mohaymen has the top two but regressed significantly last out as has Exaggerator and many other shorter priced entrants. Still too early to make a top 5 prediction but it is in the works.......Some longer priced animals look good.
AAAAARRRRREEEEE YOUUUU REEAADDDY??? FOR THE FASTEST 2:00 MINUTES IN SPORTS🌹🌹🌹🌹
I liked Cigar when I was a kid
World Approval / Slumber
No Tepin? Well, that's disappointing. She has already beaten most of the boys in this field, why would they not point her here instead of the 'easier' lady's race in prep for Ascot, where she will face much tougher competition?
  • SSilence86 via Disqus · No surprise as they said a couple of weeks ago she wouldn't contest the Woodford in favor of the Distaff. If Isabella Sings runs the way she did last time they met it will be more than just a workout for Tepin. · 4 hours ago
Nyquist and Mohaymen next to each other in the gate. Mohaymen will be mentally defeated before the race even start.
i like nyquist,mor sprit, exaggerator and mohaymen for my top 4 all though i could trade Mohaymen for Gun runner
This is a weird and interestingly talented field. I wonder how Speightster will come back?
Stageplay perhaps...
Any information?

Meet Kevin Kerstein 

Long story short, I took the long road getting involved in the industry. I did not get into horse racing until 2008 when I came to Louisville for college.

I'm originally from outside of Philadelphia and attend college at Bellarmine University in Louisville, Kentucky. Since I was 15 I was involved with working in radio and TV. I first covered horse racing at the 2011 Kentucky Derby and my passion just continues to grow. Let the early mornings begin and the Derby fever heat up as we hit the backside to get the exclusive stories leading up to the first Saturday in May.
