My top 2 Rachel's Valentina / Go Maggie Go. There are a couple of others I like here too- Royal Obsession, Lewis Bay & Cathryn Sophia any of them could round this out for me.
Rematch! Tepin all day long for me.
Here we go again ! Lets skip ahead to May 8th , the day after the Derby and this is what I'm hearing at the Kentucky bars. " Why didn't I bet my last $ 1000 on Nyquist ? " , " When Brody's Cause owner said he would donate the winnings to his school I should have jumped on that ", " Exaggerator was for real , no exaggerating " , " I love rum , why didn't I bet Rum Runner " ( ps : that dude had too much to drink ) " Destin was my first choice , he was destined to win ", MoTom + Mohaymen , it all makes perfect sense that they would run one two " , Cupid , with Mothers Day , Why didn't I think of that ? " , How about that Lani ? born in KY , studies in Japan, wins in Dubai , and easy winner in yesterday's Derby " , " Whitmore and Mor Spirit , Why didn't I play that ? We can do this all day to cover all 20 entries , but I'll let you guys and gals finish it for me . LOL + GOOD LUCK TO ALL !
Excellent position for Nyquist..Triple Crown here we come !! Just need to ensure I have the 2nd, 3rd and 4th finishers behind him :)
Trojan Nation draws the dreaded 1 post for the Kentucky Derby.
How much is it to box a superfecta with 18 horses?... Rhetorical.
Any betting suggestions yet? I actually hit on some posted on here prior.
Nun the Less worked on April 28th at Hunter Farm Training Center. He worked 4 furlongs in 53.46, and it was the fastest time of the day.
1. Nyquist: 2. Mohaymen: 3. Shagaf: 4. Lani: Call me stupid but...... May also use Destin and Creator.
Letting 22 sophomores go to the gate in front of that cacophonous, rowdy crowd is both stupid and dangerous. Field sizes that inhibit the contenders from running a clear path late not only complicates the handicapping, but sets up the possibility for a late charger to clip heels on a strongly decelerating also ran.
In a field that big, speed is a premium to be out front of trouble....IT also sets up the potential for a dumb result
I love mohaymen being right next to Nyquist hopefully he'll get his revenge and beat him
Post 13 for Nyquist.
I found video of Exaggerator's 4/30/16 (yesterday) work at Keelerman's site. Kent D. commented that the track was "loose", but thought the colt handled it all right. So, as an FYI to Jb, Jay, Mark, Tammy, astiar, et al, I'll link it. :) http://www.theturfboard.com/exaggerator-breezes-at-churchill-in-final-derby-workout/

  • Tammy Keyes via Disqus · Thanks Goblin. I know Nyquist has beat him in every time they faced, but Exaggerator has really come into his own lately. I think he has finally put it all together! I am really excited! · 2 hours ago
He's in the derby! Per bloodhorse, 22 runners are in this year and Cherry Wine is the 22nd horse (Not Post Position) Can't wait for Cherry Wine to make a splash in the rankings this year
Nyquist and Mohaymen next to each other in the gate. Mohaymen will be mentally defeated before the race even start.
142nd running of the KY Derby Post Positions- (1) Trojan Nation (2) Suddenbreakingnews (3) Creator (4) Mo Tom (5) Gun Runner (6) My Man Sam (7) Oscar Nominated (8) Lani (9) Destin (10) Whitmore (11) Exaggerator (12) Tom's Ready (13) Nyquist (14) Mohaymen (15) Outwork (16) Shagaf (17) Mor Spirit (18) Majesto (19) Brody's Cause (20) Danzing Candy
Woohoo! Drew post 5!
Post 11 for Exaggerator, gonna be in the middle out of the gate.
Finally decided on my Kentucky Derby pick and it is.... Mor Spirit! California shippers have been lights out this year and Mor Spirit has been saving a lot of gas in the tank. He is sitting on a big one and should run huge this Saturday. For more analysis, check out my Horse-By-Horse Contender Profiles and Analysis on my blog, horseracingstation (dot) wordpress (dot) com.
