  • amdaman · I also hope Commanding Curve sneaks into the Kentucky Derby. His comeback race in the Risen Star wasn't a bad one, despite the bad post and a sluggish start. In his last he got pinched at the start, and was in tight at the top of the stretch. With better luck he could've placed. He's been working well at Churchill. He's won at that track, and the Derby would be his third race since the layoff. He'll probably show a bit more speed and lay fifth or sixth. He'd be a nice long shot if he gets in. Maybe not win it, but make the exotics worthwhile. · 1 day ago ·

  • kentuckyderbypost · Even if MH dazzles and gets the KyDerby nod from Bob, this field looks like one that will be more ready for the Preakness distance rather than the KyDerby. whoever should be an interesting contender in the 2nd jewel. · 4 days ago ·

If Ivan Dalos’ Ami’s Holiday wins Saturday’s $200,000 Coolmore Lexington (G3), he could be considered a player on the Road to the Kentucky Derby.

  • Mike in SB · Rachel ran in the Oaks one day before the Derby, Bernardini ran in the Withers one week before the Derby so he was comming into the Preakness with 3 weeks rest. Good horses don't need 6-8 weeks between races. Since 2000 a horse has won two consecutive Triple Crown races 7 times or 50% of the series, the 5 Derby-Preakness winners and 2 Preakness-Belmont winners. · 15 days ago ·

  • johnbarbaro · Super Savor and Lil. E Tee also ran second in the Arkansas Derby before winning the Derby. I think outside of the Florida Derby it has been one of the strongest preps in the last 10 or so years. Curlin,Bodemeister, Afleet Alex, Nehro, Steppenwoffer, Impeachement all placed in the Derby after prepping in Arkansas. · 37 days ago ·

  • Buckpasser · Cocoa. The quality of racinos depends on who is running them. Tioga Downs, Hoosier, Northfield, Scioto Downs and looks like many of the other ones in Ohio look to be well run and do a good job to support racing. Others don't, I agree. Let's see what Suffolk Downs gets. · 105 days ago ·
