The final major Kentucky Derby 2012 prep at Gulfstream Park will be held March 31 and Union Rags is the strong 6-5 favorite in the Grade 1 Florida Derby.
#6 Union Rags (6-5) has been part of my Derby Top 10
since I started the list last September, and he has occupied my top spot
since last November. The uncrowned juvenile champ looked great in his
facile G2 Fountain of Youth return but there was not much behind him
that day. He has over $1 million in graded earnings and figures to be no
worse than 2nd in his final Derby prep.
