  • illhaveanothertriplecrown · Pretty good roster, I really like Hero of Order, Bourbon Courage and Nehro. I also think Mark Valeski and Macho Macho are pretty solid as well. Good for all of you that have an opportunity to go down to Fairgrounds and see these horses live. If only we had horses like this up here. · 523 days ago ·

  • ScottDick · Dangerous for anyone who doesn't like Easter Gift when ZATT and Hoosier State of Mind are on him! Traditionally the Indiana Derby is won by the up and coming three year old, (Brass Hat, Misremembered, Wilburn, Star Dabbler. Tin Cup Chalice.) I definitely think Easter Gift fits that mold. · 642 days ago ·

  • jasen.mangrum · You know I'll be in there. One sneaky horse I'll throw in there is Morgan's Guerilla. You know how I'm a sucker for inside speed horses in route races at Hoosier, no matter how out matched they might be. · 642 days ago ·

  • Mary Z. · Toby's Corner, Nehro, Mission Impazible, Fast Alex. Toby's corner because I think that last race got him ready, Nehro because he likes to come in a close second, Mission Impazible because I think he could win this, so not the time to pick him to win--you know how he is, Fast Alex--I like him and he's good enough for fourth. My luck at Fair Grounds has been horrible though. Beware. · 831 days ago ·
