Because no one else will tell you, not a single Wood Memorial alumnus
has finished in the money in the Kentucky Derby since Funny Cide and
Empire Maker in 2003. That's six years of blanks, 13 off-the-board
finishes and an average placing of 10th. So before one more gas-blower
tells you about how bad the Blue Grass has been for three years, which
somehow includes a Kentucky Derby winner in 2007 (Street Sense),
remember how stupid you can look when you short-sight your statistics.
This is not to disparage the Wood or its alumni this year, just to
remind those who are openly lambasting other races without the facts.
