Re: Annual Kentucky Derby Picks
I thiink the race will be decided right out of the gate. If Bellamy runs on the lead with Spanish Chestnut and Going Wild, he will pack it in at the top of the stretch
and set it up for Afleet Aex. If he can do like Smarty did last year and lay off right behind the early speed , he'll probably win. Don't like the fact he's only had 2 races this year, but he does look special. But not at 5/2. So I can't bet on him and I can't bet against him.
Will therefore box triples:
Bellamy and Afleet Alex
over those two and Greeley's Galaxy and High Fly,
over those four and Bandini,High Limit,Sun King, Wilco, and Noble Causeway.
A $4 triple costs $168.00. Hope they all make it through ok.
