Jon & Joel recap Kentucky Derby 138 and hand out grades for the race. Did it live up to its lofty expectations? Who ran the best, and did the track play a factor in the outcome?
Watch it. Comment.
|1||Bodemeister||Brilliant colt was likely best in Derby, but was too brilliant early|
|2||I’ll Have Another||Validated his quality and the strength of the California 3yos|
|3||Creative Cause||Valiant in defeat once again; Wide trip didn’t help his finish|
|4||Dullahan||Proved that dirt isn’t an obstacle; May skip Preakness for Belmont|
|5||Union Rags||Not sharp enough early in his races, and it’s gotten him in trouble|
|6||Went the Day Well||Going best of all at the wire; Only deep closer to have success|
|7||Hansen||Too keyed up before the Derby; Should run better in Preakness|
|8||Paynter||Promising colt could be a live longshot in the Preakness|
|9||Alpha||Disappointed in Derby but could strike again in Belmont|
|10||Liaison||Much improved in Derby despite a wide trip throughout|
