Along with this mornings post position draw, as of last night all of the Derby entrants arrived on the Churchill Downs grounds safe and sound. Mendelssohn's appearance on the track is still most anticipated after the west coast crew arrived yesterday and hit the track this AM...Justify, Bolt d'Oro and Solomini. Mendelssohn will be in quarantine so we most likely have to wait till Thursday to see him.
Concerning the draw, Pletcher had the best of it with all his contenders, all drawing very well. I would have liked to see Justify and Good Magic draw much further outside because these two will have to show themselves early or risk getting gobbled up as the field comes over vying for position into the first turn. If either can do it from their post positions they will be a threat to the TC. Romans Free Drop Billy will also be put to pressure from the 2 slot....Romans had no luck in the draw getting number 3 for his other entrant and likely pace setter Promises Fulfilled. Another speed horse Flameaway drew 4 guaranteeing a fast early pace because none of them will be able to wait and see from an outside post...they will have to go. Medelssohn (who also wants to be close) drew 14, which would be a good thing if there were only 14 in the race. This is a Euro horse used to running both clockwise and counterclockwise and from the 14 post, he could see daylight to his right (between the 14 and 15 slot where the gate is joined and leaves a larger gap between stalls) when he breaks and head that way? Instilled Regard might just get lucky from his good post 15, I'd bet Holledorfer and Aug.27 are glad he drew in...he is certainly bred to go 1 1/4 miles. This is one confusing Derby and we haven't even talked about the 25% of the Derby field under the Apollo and Storm Cat Curse involving the top 3 contenders on the morning line as well as a couple solid long shots, Justify 3-1, Mendelssohn 5-1, Magnum Moon 6-1, Flameaway 30-1 and Combatant 50-1. Good news, the Saturday overnight is out, will post the updated pp's and entries now. TJ
