It's time to make your Derby picks.

My early pick is Java's War. He really closed in the TB Derby. I think he wins the Bluegrass going away on the poly.

The field is always the favorite this time of year.

Looks like Pool 3 ended up with the field at 5/1 and Verrazano at 7/1.

I'd say the field is no longer the favorite. If it still is, it's not by much, and it certainly won't be after Saturday.

Only 3 favorites have won the Derby in the last 31 years. The colts are still babies. Some with bad habits that can be corrected. Most have peaked, as they have been redlined in their two and early three year old campaigns and have run their race. If you can find a horse that you believe has room to improve and hasn't run it's race yet....well, you may have a winner. IMHO

good job, what are you going go do with your 11.20? Oh I know, your going to parlay the 11.20 on Java's War in the Derby, to show. Nothing worse than a horse player that says....."easy, I gave it to everyone"........

Why do you assume I just played him to win? I had him everywhere, and yes it hurts when I give you a winner almost a month ago
