This guy has a tough job, handicapping The Derby in advance of the draw and without the final workouts. On the other hand it's not clear to me that he's picked a winner recently.
Davidm9999 - stop making sense. does not appear to be any room for that here.
on Bayern - not a hater but was mystified by all the attention. the pace was moderate, as confirmed by the trip notes. his excuse could be so lightly raced and the layoff, but not that a closer picked up the pieces.
Andy - I know you are only reporting what Lukas said without Bias. I just think it's a BS passive aggressive comment for Lukas to make. WTC laid an egg in all three classics and Junior had him right there with PM at the finish. If that race went another 1/8 like it will Saturday you never know. I just looked. Junior has 20 more wins this year in 118 fewer mounts than Saez in 2013. He's established himself as a Top 10 jockey at a very young age, but he's not getting the big rides he deserves because he's still fairly new to New York.
Sorry for the duplicate post men. I refreshed the page and that's what happened.
I had PM in the Belmont an no reason to get off him now. I think Shug must be pointing Orb for the BC anyway with no prep race. My question is - why did Lukas take Jr. Alvarado off WTC for The Travers after a brilliant ride in the Jim Dandy?
