Fast and Accurate
Bronson
King and His Court
Kitten's Cat


Having a hard time seeing any of these being KY Derby winners. My top 4 choices are 2 synthetic specialists and 2 grass horses. So, anyway, hopefully Kitten's Cat doesn't encourage Ramsey to go on...
I do like Cambiocorsa's offspring, and so I have a soft spot for Bronson.

TJ, you're just the best. Coz you think like me. Parlor is one of "mine".
I wouldn't have thought he was quite classy enough though, or at least ready. Why is he your pick?

Hi Toccet,
It's basically guesswork....since I'm guessing he will handle the synthetic because he handles the turf? Kittens Cat is another who is looking to make the transition...if he does, I thought his 2nd to Ticonderoga (a fast closing 4th in the BC Juvenile Turf) in the GR III Palm Beach at GP on the turf could make him a logical choice here. So using Kittens Cat as a barometer, he was beaten by Parlor when they both raced together in their first lifetime starts. Though Parlor has been making life hard for himself as he breaks poorly, he still managed to get the job done 2 out of 3 times overcoming these bad starts. He runs well off long layoffs and he gives me the impression that the extra distance will help him. In his last start, he again broke a bit slow and came flying home, going his last 1/4 at the end of the mile race in 22.4....that's rolling and he won in hand. If he handles the switch in surfaces he could be tough? TJ

Toccet,
Parlor broke running today and he didn't have anything through the lane. Possibly he didn't get hold of the poly or he got lost that close up early:>) TJ

Cree,
Nice pick!! He paid $51.

I thought this horse looked like a good one to take this race, and I am pleasantly surprised to see I was right. Sounds like they will supplement $200,000 to get him in the starting gate on the 1st Saturday in May.
