Here's my brain teasing recap for our family's friendly competition: Java colored War horses set the Lines of Battle as if for a Normandy Invasion as Churchill Downs was transformed into a muddy Palace of Malice by the days Falling Sky. This was no scene for a Charming Kitten as the pace off the gun was blistering, so if you thought to yourself, "My horse Will Take Charge early" or "Itsmyluckyday", your Vy was sure to be Jacked up as the late pacers were just setting up for a Giant Finish. The Frac from the front hit those Daddy's in arears in their faces and chests but they just kept coming. Returning hall-of-famer Gary Stevens should've just taken out his Oxbow and started slaying the stormers as they passed. Verrazano could not bridge, and Mylute finished just out of the loot, as jockey Calvin Bo"rail" tried to ride the rail with his steed on a final Revolutionary charge, only to nab a show. Many a Golden Soul had their hopes dashed on that final line, as early favorite Orb's sphere of influence was just divinely destined to rule this globes stallions for the day. Winners will receive some sort of memorabilia for not Overanalyzing their pick, maybe a scratched Black Onyx or even some Goldencents.
  • Sullivan · Golden Soul was my longshot pick, but I of course made my usual stupid Derby move and let both him and Orb go, and actually betting on Verrazano. · 3556 days ago
i forecast a month ago when ORB beat Violence that Orb is a super horse, some punters crticised me, i told also he will be this year Triple Crown winner, although i bet him totoday but only $100.00 also i bet superfecta and trifecta, but i got 1st, 3rd and 4th, i missed the 2nd horse, so i did'nt get any thing, it was a bad luck, i did'nt profit any thing today because i invested $400 dollars on Trifecta and Superfecta, so i just got even up.
Looks like the raid might stop in 30 - 45 minutes, so some drying might happen.
My "likes" super high five- Revolutionary, Orb, Mylute, Java's War, Frac Daddy (no order, except I like Rev #1)
These are my Final Picks: Frac Daddy, Mylute, Vyjack and Revolutionary
Verrazano is still my pick even on wet track. I still think he's the better horse. Revolutionary is my second choice. My longshot is Java's War i think he's the forgotten horse in this race.
It's looking like the track will be soaked around post time. So in my eyes the horses to toss are Verrazano, Falling Sky, Lines of Battle, Will Take Charge, Goldencents, Overanalyze and Giant Finish but that's my opinion. As of right now my picks are Mylute, Revolutionary, Palace Malice, and Vyjack.

  • travel_vic · Can you imagine the rooster tail the midpack and later ones will have to battle: not being able to see where they are running unless they are taken wide....Early is the best style normally and it really better in the slop....How much sits on the surface alters it too. · 3558 days ago
  • jmac500 · @Sully it was her first race against great competition, so her bad perforance doesn't show anything. · 3558 days ago
My money will be on Revolutionary and Oxbow.
Toss out Orb, and stay away from favorites while betting big races.
I look at who in all the horses should improve and take another step higher in the KD. In other words horses that have not got it quite right and show signs that they can achieve more than they have. And from all the things I evaluate there are only two that I have found that can and I think get better as a racehorse. They are none other than Revolutionary and Orb. Even though they have done well I think their best is yet to come. Just my opinion.

  • travel_vic · If you look at them OBJECTIVELY, the vast majority of colts come out of this race with some of their poorest totals and energy distributions...There are exceptions ,like Monarchos and a few others but they are very rare. · 3560 days ago
  • amino998 · Objectively speaking, 1 ¼ miles in May would tend to blunt a modern day 3yo colt’s pure numbers. Most of these CAN achieve more than they have and become better as racehorses. They're still developing. · 3559 days ago
Looks like rain on Saturday is almost a definite at this point..heavy at times. The Oaks should be alright on Friday, but let's bust out those slop picks!

  • jmac500 · Raiin or shine I'm going with Mylute, Black Onyx, Normandy Invasion, and Revolutionary. · 3560 days ago
  • DerekFisher · yea I'm liking Revolutionary, Black Onyx, Oxbow, Normandy Invasion, and Palace Malice as top dogs · 3560 days ago
i like REVOLUTIONARY but post position 3 bothers me, he might get pocketed and can not able to manage free from that, that's why i took him out from my selections, the way the odds are standing now, it looks favourite migh not win the derby and be cautious about that?
  • patrick.l.mccaslin · Dont worry about post 3. Borel won in 2010 from post 4 on super saver. Revolutionary was my pick 8 weeks ago and is still my pick. Borel will do justice on him! · 3560 days ago
OVER ANALYZED 4f workouts 46.67, the fastest 4f workouts time? watch this horse?
It's going to be a sloppy one!
I know that everyone has their horses they like and it's hard to let go and pick another horse that may be better. But don't get lost into odds, favorism, or just spite to stay with a pick you might know may not win. There is a lot to be said about horses that have proven themselves and the fact is that combined Verrazano, Ord and Revolutionary have racked up 6 grade 1, 2 and 3 stakes race wins their last six starts. Now you may be betting agaisnt them, and that's ok. Just remember that they are proven to be top contenders in the KD and not ones that have not won a stakes race. Choose wisely!
Looking at the full card and wow I love it.
