Derby May Care

Your task is simple. I want your Overall pick for the WINNER of the Kentucky Derby 136 and tell me why. Then I want who will be second and third. Finally, who is your sentimental pick for the race, unless you are Dray and choose the chalk =)

 Overall pick:
Lookin at Lucky

Could it be a California revenge sort of year?
Sidney’s Candy will provide revenge for Chocolate Candy and the other synthetic athletes coming to the big dirty dance.

Pletcher's Fate:
Super Saver
Mission Impazible
Discreetly Mine

On the Wings:
Devil May Care (KY)
Devil may care likes the longer distances, ran on dirt at Belmont, is 3-0-0 and has only two things to worry about in this race. Boys and distance. So what is my reaction? The devil isn't going to care, she gets a good run and hits the board finishing fourth.

My proposal is that they create a future wager named "the Pletcher bet" where you can bet on all of his horses. It is fate this year, destiny for him to win. If he can't this year, I question if he ever will. Of course each race is a new race.

I do realize that me saying this is Pletcher's year to win contradicts my Lookin At Lucky pick to win. I will be betting one way with the Pletcher angle, but primarily with my Lookin At Lucky angle.
