  • cocoa2 · IMLD will be hard pressed to find a kick leaving Gulfstream. I think Shanghai Bobby is going to slow that pace so that I could out run him and then kick out, open up 2 at the head of the turn and come home beating a drifting Orb and fast closing Its myluckyday · 669 days ago
  • travel_vic · Speedballs don't often win it (recall that one shipper from California, Snow Chief who later passed the Derby), but they hamg around a lot on the board giving the idea that they could at longer distances. · 669 days ago
Gonna go with Orb to win, with IMLD and Frac Daddy hitting the board. I like Clearly Now as a possible upsetter as well.

  • Southern.Humor · Frac Daddy is a horse I think has a lot of potential and is improving which is why he was my third pick. · 670 days ago
  • icyhotboo · If MM and SB hook up in a speed duel then IMLD and Orb should easily hit. I guess that's what makes it exciting, the improbable happens twice as much as the probable. · 670 days ago
Would not be suprised if IMLD or SB are on the outside looking in on Derby Day after not acquiring enough points in the Florida Derby. Personally, I hope they both make it in, as they'll take a lot of $ and will not be too fond of that 10th furlong.
I like Orb to win -1-----shanghai bobby for 2 ------- IMLD -------3

  • Buckpasser · Why race Orb? Because Shug is an old time trainer who raced his horses and had less works. His philosophy is the same as Johnny Nerud, Allen Jerkens, Ben and Jimmy Jones, Sunny Jim Etc. Etc. they raced often and between stakes races they found allowance races to sharpen up their horses. Their horses were sounder and raced longer. The run once a month crowd with lots of works seem to have a lot of injured and quickly retired horses. · 671 days ago
  • On The Gallop's · URR- Awesome Comment...lol. My 4 Future Derby wagers now include ORB. Uncaptured/Oxbow/Hear The Ghost/Orb. · 670 days ago
you want a good shot at picking the fla. derby winner.take the inside speed horse.one thing gulfstream is historical for.on big days they scrape the track to no end.it is so hard,it is very dangerous for the horses.look at last years result.calvin got on the readmill with take charge indy and never looked back.the best horse does not always win on the big days at gulstream
  • Dressage3295 · As for last year, TCI WAS the best in that race. He is a very competitive horse, who I believe could shape up to be quite good. I wouldn't say the FL Derby is historical for speed horses to win. Did you see the 2011 and 2010 races? Both were come from behind horses. Speed doesn't always win. · 671 days ago
I'll go with Orb because this is going to be a hot pace which sets him up for the win.

  • Dressage3295 · I'm taking Itsmyluckyday. Hasn't failed me yet in 2013. If he runs like he did in the Holy Bull, there is no way any horse will beat him · 672 days ago
  • vlad.hawk.3 · Shanghai Bobby. · 672 days ago
Even though we may only get a small field, the FL Derby is shaping up to perhaps be the best of the prep races on the 2013 trail. Several top quality horses going head-to-head. We may look back at this race as a key race producing the 3 y.o. champ or the top future campaigners/stallions. Interesting to see who emerges.
shanghai bobby 1 1/8 noway harlan s holiday 7/8 m no way

Will most likely be the only other place where Bern and Bobby will mix up again (besides Derby) who are you for? I'm for Bern, keeps improving and is one nice colt! :)
