Be interested to see how the Hyacinth pays out next year. Hopefully Mont Saint Legame can make it to that race for maximum points.

Watchmaker: Classic Empire's dud muddies Kentucky Derby road

You might think that since all three of Saturday’s Kentucky Derby point prep races were won in decisive fashion, the Derby picture right now on Sunday morning is at least just a tiny bit clearer. But that is anything but the case.
