I don’t have much to offer in the way of analysis, other than to note that there appear to be quite a few horses in this year’s field that like to be forwardly placed early in their races.  That much contention for the early lead tends to leave all of those early runners gasping for air down the stretch of the mile and a quarter Kentucky Derby.  I’m going to play against those early runners and focus on horses that can sit off the pace and make up ground in the stretch.

My picks:

#4 – Danza
#16 – Intense Holiday
#19 – Ride On Curlin
#12 – Dance With Fate
