Derby fever heating up

Any hardcore thoroughbred horse racing fans out there? How about casual gamblers who love dressing up and drinking Mint Juleps on the first Saturday in May?

Either way, the Kentucky Derby is a month away.

Uncle Mo, the Breeders Cup Juvenile winner and early favorite is still hot on most handicappers' radar, but Dialed In is a rising star after winning the Florida Derby on Sunday. Anthony's Cross, Jaycito and Premier Pegasus have a major test this weekend in the Santa Anita Derby.

It seems like a lifetime time ago I actually picked a winner for News-Herald readers with Super Saver in the 2010 Kentucky Derby. I have my eyes and ears open to try to come up with a winner and some money-making options again this May.

Right now, it is tough to imagine Uncle Mo getting beat, but that is what makes the Kentucky Derby such a great sporting event.

You just never know, so stay tuned.
