I got no feeling whatsoever with these horses so far. Really feeling a long shot in the K.D. this year.

I agree. He feels like a sprinter to me though. I think he would be 5th or 6th most likely winner based on the probables.

Possibly 5th or 6th most likely to win, but maybe most likely clunk up for 3rd, which would probably get him in the derby. Better than trying Justify and BDO, where you ain’t finishing 1st or 2nd, so you’re dealing with a bunch of other horses just trying to suck up for 3rd as well. Just my opinion.

And I agree that he’s a 7f-1M horse, and maybe a very good one.

Was able to snap a close-up of Mendelssohn in the parade ring. Beautiful animal.

I think Baffert sending Restoring Hope to the Wood probably says enough about the race.

The fact that he’ll be under 5-1...

I think Restoring Hope is a good play Saturday.
He looked outstanding in his work the other day.
He's getting good in a hurry.....

I like My Boy Jack a bit, but unless they have given up on the Derby he has to go to Oaklawn. His running style is not often favored at KEE, and on the reduced points in the Lexington he would have to win to be in. In the AD a second would do.

I am looking for quality closers at a price in this Derby.

Tenfold's another Curlin? And Combatant's another Scat Daddy? It's been quite a year for both on the Derby trail, and it's only April. Just makes you all the more disgusted that we lost Scat Daddy so young. Thrilled for Curlin to have all this success. He really earned his way and they believed in and supported him. Quite an accomplishment. I realize these two colts are unlikely to get in the KD field, it's just that it's a testament to the embarrassment of riches we've got going on with both stallions' offspring so far.
