With the Kentucky Derby just a week away, Churchill Downs opens this weekend with the Derby Trail Stakes featuring Derby contenders who miss the field. It is going to be an interesting day this race. 75% chance of rain around this race and the temperature will be 72 degrees.

My 3 picks:

5-Hurricane Ike
6-Miner's Reserve

My pick to win:


Hurricane Ike: Only one win in his career and it cam from his first start. In his last 3 starts, he has a second, a third, and a second. Calvin Borel is on him again, let's see if he can work his magic again at CD.
Miner's Reserve: Very disappointing performance in the Florida Derby in his last start. Won by over 5 lengths in his start before the Florida. With a new jockey on board, he could bounce back.
Eightyfiveinafifty: 2 wins in his 3 starts with a winning margin of 17 and 2 lengths. Usually up there in the beginning. A good pace setting in this race will make this horse the one to beat.
