Good Magic
Justify hooked me after I saw him gallop...Baffert's been in this spot with late developers before and never tried to get to the Derby...but this one he thinks will overcome all he's been through to get here. His main issue was OCD lesions which was the reason Tabor, Smith, Magnier (who owned Scat Daddy) didn't bid on him because their vet turned him down at the sale. I will key in on Justify and use others (like Pletcher's group and more:>) in the 3rd and 4th slot...but will need one of my 3 under Justify to get 2nd. My bomb is Instilled Regard who is bred well for the distance and could make a giant tri or super? Good Luck to all. TJ

Hi all,

I will try to keep awake today, there is so much to see. I saw a tremendous Saxon Warrior winning the 2000 Guineas at Newmarket today. What a horse, what a pedigree! I'll go for Justify in your Derby.

Nice to watch McCraken return to winning form in today's 5th. He did it under an off track after a downpour while they were saddling up. The main track is currently muddy and sealed. TJ
PS...Hi Erin!

1 mile probably always was McCraken’s distance. Definitely nice to see him back.

The NBC Kentucky Derby program is as bad as always. Too bad is not really about horse racing.

Hope you put Chad's horse in your exacta. I ended up in good shape with my Oaks/Derby hit, but I bet Mendelsshon to win, he got slammed pretty good, but Justify was the winner from start to finish and your faith and knowledge were well placed, as always.

Hi DDT,
Look at my picks (top of this page)....I keyed Justify and had 3 under him (Chad was the 3rd one) in the 2nd spot and my super threat was Instilled Regard....had a very good day:>)TJ

Beyer gave it a rather uninspired 103. Don't know if Smith was easing up but this horse wasn't pulling away. His advantage was early run and enough to take it a mile and a quarter. Should be heaviy odds on for Preakness. But a mile and a half is another thing. But 45 and change and still winning is amazing.
