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 =)
Lookin at Lucky
has been on Baffert’s mind with this colt since last summer. -

Line of David
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.

Devil May Care (KY)
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.
take on Pletcher...
