Jon and Joel were at Keeneland on Saturday to witness both the Blue Grass Stakes and Hansen’s infamous “Tailgate” incident. Get their take on both, as well as their thoughts on just how good Bodemeister’s Arkansas Derby romp was. Do we have a new Derby favorite?
Watch it. Comment.
|1||Union Rags||103||No longer the clear Derby fave; Need to see him train well in KY|
|2||Bodemeister||106||A “holy cow” breakthrough win in Arkansas Derby, but was it too fast?|
|3||Creative Cause||107||Consistent, classy, battle-tested and possesses a good style for the Derby|
|4||Gemologist||104||The fact that this colt is not in the Top 3 shows how good this crop is|
|5||Hansen||105||A key Derby matchup will be the cruising speed of his vs. Nos. 2 & 4|
|6||Dullahan||102||His ability on real dirt remains a question, but Blue Grass winner is legit|
|7||Alpha||104||Stepped up nicely and passed a needed class test in the Wood|
|8||I’ll Have Another||102||California 3yos have been dominant, and he won two big preps there|
|9||Take Charge Indy||109||Took advantage of easy pace to win Florida Derby; Borel an obvious plus|
|10||El Padrino||111||Looking likelier to make Derby field, and he’ll move up this list if so|
