A pair of Kentucky Derby 2012 graded route preps were run last weekend and Union Rags made a big splash in his sophomore debut in the Fountain of Youth at Gulfstream Park on Sunday.
The quality/depth of the FOY took a big hit with the defection of Algorithms
and Union Rags rolled past his overmatched rivals in a facile triumph.
He has been my top ranked Derby contender since November 2011 and
obviously holds on to that spot.
