Thanks for pointing out the distance limitations of Big Brown's progeny. Never was a fan and no one will ever convince me that "roids" DID NOT assist his run at the TC, IMHO. I'll never put $$$ on a Big Brown in any future KY Derby.
Great info Laurie. Here's another FACT: None of the past 20 Derby winners broke his maiden at CD.
I like how you think Alex, but Father Time may be catching up to the "Cat". This field is loaded with graded stakes runners. If I know King, he'll scratch and take the easier road to the Fabulous Strike @ Penn in 2 weeks.
I'm looking for much further off the pace, which means Mico Margarita.
I loved Afleet Alex as I did Texas Red in BC Juvenile (he was my only winner on BC Saturday)... but ONLY because "Red" had the perfect setup (nearly all others were speed, speed, speed).
IMHO, he will not repeat that performance moving forward, but that won't stop me from cheering him on along the Derby Trail.
Nice write-up Matt and I concur with your top pick! That means Cary Street is in trouble. LOL I'm also going to use Sky Kingdom in my P3s. GL
Mary, thanks for being my proof reader... corrections have been made. I guess it just seems like 4 years instead of 3? lol Have a great BC weekend... I wish I could be there!
This is the first of the 13 BC races and think Rosario could have a HUGE WEEKEND... even though I'm not in love with him as it seems are many other horseplayers. The comment line for Startup Nation's Pilgrim doesn't tell the whole story. IF Rosario gives him a clean, outside trip, he'll win!
