Kentucky Derby blog #9

Wednesday is huge as far as handicapping the Kentucky Derby is concerned.

At sometime after 5 p.m., the post position draw will be held. At that point, we will know who got stuck on the rail and who got shipped outside to the auxiliary gate. Neither have proven great places to be for the Run for the Roses.

The workouts have been over sloppy tracks because of rainy weather in Louisville, but the reports are a clear day and a fast track for Saturday. So, what do you do?

If you don't know where a horse is breaking the gate from and you are trying to handicap a horse off a workout on a sloppy track in such a wide open race, well, good luck.

Wait until Wednesday night. A lot should be cleared up by then.
