Post positions assigned and We have a Pick
The post positions for the 141st. Kentucky Derby have been drawn and projected odds have been assigned.
Bob Baffert's American Pharoah drew the 18 slot. That's not good for the horse that is listed as the potential favorite at 5-2.
Baffert's other "heavy hitter" in the race...Dortmund...drew slot 8. That's real good andit's part of the reason I do think that he will win the Kentucky Derby. Projected odds on "Dortie" are 3-1.
Who knows? I'd be surprised if America Pharoah actually gets bet down to 5-2. Not with that post...
Carpe Diem, another serious contender for the Roses got PP 2. That's a tough break for Todd Pletcher and John Velazquez. Those inside posts near the rail are like playing bumper cars when they break from the gate.
International Star drew PP 12. Not bad...not bad at all.
El Kabier got a great spot at PP 7. Just sayin'...Calvin Borel. Won the Kentucky Jockey Club and the Wood Memorial. I'll take 30-1 on him all day long and thrice on Thurby.
We're hitting Churchill Thursday for "Thurby" Thould be a thantastic thime at the Thurchill Dowths...
