    Annual Kentucky Derby Picks

    Time for the run for the roses! Make your picks by racetime.

    I'll take Scat Daddy. I like the name and he's got good odds

    I'll take Great Hunter even though his post position stinks.

    If it's a wet track, I want Scat Daddy taken all 3 ways. Unless SD pulls a Barbaro and breaks down, there's no way that horse finishes out of the top 3.

    Give me a trifecta of Curlin, Street Sense, and Nobiz Like Shobiz.

    Circular Quay, I always go with a closer
    More often than not, when someone is telling me a story all I can think about is that I can't wait for them to finish so that I can tell my own story that's not only better, but also more directly involves me.

    I like the triple of Nobiz Like Shobiz, Hard Spun (trained by Larry Jones), and Curlin. No, Larry, and Curlin.

    I'm gonna stick with Street Sense. My bets are currently WPS on Street Sense and WPS on Circular Quay.

    Re: Annual Kentucky Derby Picks

    I'm going to go with Curlin. Seems the last few Derbys have put some dings in conventional wisdom, and the main argument against Curlin is conventional wisdom (the "unraced at two" factor). Maybe it'll continue.

    BTW, I've been checking old Derby clips on Youtube today. Very cool.

    I was looking at old Secretariat clips today. His Triple Crown races are all amazing and definitely worth a look. I get emotional every time I see a replay of the Belmont-the greatest athletic moment I've ever seen.

    In all three races, he not only won, he did it in ways that were pretty much unheard of.

    Derby: Ran each quarter-mile faster than the one before.
    Preakness: Went from last to first around the first turn.
    Belmont: All of it.

    34 years later, the world-record time of 2:24 in the Belmont (1 1/2 miles, dirt track) has never been seriously challenged.
