Kentucky Derby blog #2
The Kentucky Derby field is an absolute trainwreck as far as pinning down a favorite, but that is GOOD NEWS for fans of parimutuel betting. Should be a good payoff now that there is no clear-cut chalk.
Archarcharch wins the Arkansas Derby and favorite The Factor is no factor at all. Lonsghot Brilliant Speed wins the Bluegrass Stakes to further muddy the water. I love it, and so should all of you that don't mind a little uncertainty on the first Saturday in May.
Dialed In might be a popular pick because of his closing style and win in the Florida Derby. Uncle Mo might be forgiven his third-place finish in the Wood Memorial, but distance is still a concern.
Can't wait for the May 7 race and for Louisville to light up for the best 2 minutes in sports! Just not sure right now which horse deserves to be the favorite or who really wants to win this thing. Lots of warts on all the contenders.
