Malusis, Monzo, Moore And McDonald Share Their Kentucky Derby Bets

One might listen to Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert noting the recession of patience in 21st-century horse buying, or saying of the sport, "We don't have a draft".

"They're never the same after they win the Derby or the Belmont", said Hall of Fame trainer and four-time Derby victor Bob Baffert.

Dale Romans said that conventional wisdom is falling by the wayside pretty often these days when it comes to the Kentucky Derby.

He sounds like a football coach, yet believable. The Hyatt's watched Justify win the Santa Anita Derby last month to qualify for the Triple Crown race.

This year, a similar rule has been created for European horses. "I don't know is the honest answer, and not for one moment do we think this is going to be straightforward, though that is stating the obvious".

So he's ranked 20th out of a field of 20. It's likely the most talented group of runners this race has seen in a quarter-century, especially among the top 10 horses in the field. This may be the year a bettor can capitalize on a qualified runner that may be overlooked among other bettors.

Now, I'll land the mic to the #RJhorseracing handicappers, who this week are handicapping both the Kentucky Oaks, the equivalent of the Derby for 3-year-old fillies, on Friday and the Derby on Saturday.

Texas Rangers vs. Boston Red Sox
It's a much larger sample size of him leading off (353 games), however, than the other two spots (87 games combined). Danny Duffy has never beaten the Boston Red Sox , with the bulk of his poor numbers coming at Fenway Park.

Judging from Kim's actions, she may very well believe that's best accomplished with her sister's BF on the sidelines. Like I don't even know how to describe it besides it's just so f-ked up.

South Korea dismantles propaganda loudspeakers at border
Millions watched Moon's meeting with Kim last Friday, the first meeting between two leaders of North and South Korea in a decade. In addition to this, on Friday, South Korean President Moon Jae-in met at the same location in Panmunjom . "We'll see.

Last year's win by Always Dreaming marked the fifth year in a row the pre-race favorite had won the race, the most since the 1890s.

There's a Mott element, a Baffert favorite, a Pletcher mass and then the second favorite Mendelssohn sitting over unseen and mysterious in his barn, quarantine process ongoing, after another of his globe-trotting trips.

Mendelssohn's record boasts wins in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf and an 18-length romp in the UAE Derby, on the dirt. However, Bolt d'Oro ran his heart out in the San Felipe only to follow Justify that controlled the pace in the Santa Anita Derby. Velasquez has Vino Rosso.

In 2015, American Pharoah became the first horse to win the coveted Triple Crown since Affirmed in 1978.

"(Baffert) has told me he's the best-looking horse he's ever trained", said Elliott Walden, CEO and president of WinStar Farm in Versailles, which owns Justify along with the China Horse Club, Head of Plains Partners and Starlight Racing. "I really think McKinzie would probably be second choice here".

"When McKinzie got hurt, I wanted to throw up", he said. So, sometimes the luck of the draw, or whatever. "So we'll just keep our fingers crossed until Saturday afternoon and hope for the best for everybody".

Then there's Florida Derby winner Audible, undefeated Arkansas Derby winner Magnum Moon, Wood Memorial winner Vino Rosso, and Louisiana Derby winner Noble Indy, all of whom are in top form and threats to capture the Run for the Roses. His capacity to get horses to this point is a feat of towering steadiness. "I just don't give up", the white-haired trainer said. He called Pletcher "very organized, very methodical, non-emotional on a lot of fronts". Within 10 years, Azra, victor of the Derby in 1892, had raced 10 times at age 2, and Lookout, the victor of the Derby the next year, raced 20 ties at 2. But the speed and intelligence he's shown in three starts this year have shown he just might be the one who can end the "curse of Apollo", as the long streak of futility has come to be known.
