  • Rossington · This colt is on a role, now having won 4 straight and never out of the money yet in his career. For me, if the Kentucky Derby were tomorrow, I'd have to bet Rule as my horse to win the Derby, unless between now and the first Saturday in May someone unexpected springs onto the scene that impresses me more than Rule has up to this point in the season.

  • mid0827 · Rule has put in some great efforts, and it would not surprise me to see him to continue to dominate fields going right into the Derby. But, unfortunately, game, classy frontrunners like this almost don't stand a chance in the Derby. Nearly every year, there are a few sprinters in there with no real chance, and they compromise the chances of frontrunners like this. There have been very few wire jobs in the Derby over the years, and even those came under specific circumstances. War Emblem was a horse nobody respected, and he wired the Derby the year after Monarchos won in a suicidal pace. Rule is much more likely to end up like Hard Spun or Lion Heart - flash speed, run a big race and then fight to hold on for second - than anything. · 1518 days ago ·
