Jon & Joel talk to Ray Paulick and Ed DeRosa in the second part of their Kentucky Derby discussion, and they opine on the Derby contenders that have made the best physical impressions and best training impressions the past week at Churchill.
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||El Padrino||111||He’s in now, and one who will benefit from Trinniberg’s pace presence|
|6||Hansen||105||A key Derby matchup will be the cruising speed of his vs. Nos. 2 & 4|
|7||Dullahan||102||His ability on real dirt remains a question, but Blue Grass winner is legit|
|8||I’ll Have Another||102||California 3yos have been dominant, and he won two big preps there|
|9||Alpha||104||Stepped up and passed a needed class test in the Wood, but figs are slow|
|10||Take Charge Indy||109||Took advantage of easy pace to win Florida Derby; Borel an obvious plus|
