PALACE MALICE AND MIKE SMITH COULD SURPRISE!
Palace Malice has ran well in both the Blue Grass Stakes and the Risen Star earlier this spring, looking for a solid performance on Derby Day.
Palace Malice and G. Gomez will finally punch in for the Kentucky Derby..
Jaycito is winless in stakes company since taking the Grade 1 Norfork in October 2010, but has posted two solid allowance wins over the past six months, including a 2 1/4- length decision at Hollywood Park December 1. Jaycito may surprise..
Atigun and Mike Smith....After a solid effort in the Belmont, I believe that "its only a matter of time..."
Jaycito has been full of potential since he finished second in the Del Mar Futurity and won the Norfolk Stakes two years ago. Injuries have gotten in the way, but his allowance victory on the track on July 22 was impressive. Also, Jaycito has been training really well and the fact that he likes Del Mar's Polytrack only adds to the intrigue. Then you have the Bejarano factor. He's the meet's leading rider and is within two stakes wins of tying the Del Mar record of 12. Look for Jaycito and Bejarano to maybe SURPRISE....
Victor Espinoza was named to ride Richard's Kid instead of regular rider Rafael Bejarano, who moved to Jaycito... Jaycito will prove himself once again!!
So what's next for jaycito???
Jaycito!!!! will catch Tapizar.... jaycito has worked impressively in preparation for this race...
