I justed wanted to give the shoutout that it is another Kentucky Derby Day. I have been a long time watcher and admirer of the Derby and I am quite excited about this years crop entered. The Derby is probably the hardest race ever to handicap and with this years large field (19) it can be even harder. There was 20 (which is the max allowed but I Want Revenge-who by the way was the fave was just scratched). With this large of horses anything can happen. I wouldn't be surprised if a long shot were to win. The horses with the inside post positions can be crushed with horses on the outside rushing to get to the inside. I honestly don't expect a triple crown winner to come out of this bunch. By the time the Preakness comes around over 50% or these horses will be gone. I am afraid horse racing is in its dying stages. I have my picks for the Derby with the little handicapping I could do and these are my faves. They are Papa Clem-I like the name but what I like the most is he is out of Smart Strike (which is the same sire of Curlin), Dunkirk-which is the most costilest horse entered-sold as a yearling for 3.7 million.-I like him cause he is was not raced as a 2 year old and his breeding is impectable. To round out my last choice is a sentimental fave and that is General Quarters. General Qaurters is the feel good horse-owner and trained by one man and he purchased him in a claiming race for $20.000.00 (which is bargain basement prices in horseracing world). General Quarters has done very well too and if he doesn't win he deserves the Seabiscuit Award! I wish everyone in this years derby a save trip and I can hope for a thrilling outcome.
