Is Haikal still in? I heard that he was going to be scratched.
Nope, he's out. War of Will moves out one spot.
Somebody may want to indicate that in the Derby Pool contest if it hasn't already been done.

Re: 2019 Kentucky Derby

I just looked over the pp's and after doing so one horse really moved up my list: By My Standards. I had him about 10th on my list. Now he's my 3rd choice behind Roadster and Maximum Security. Off the numbers, it looks like he could win. Given they are predicting a 100% chance of rain on Saturday, ...

Everyone moves in a spot and Bodexpress gets #20. ((Well, everyone that was outside of him.)
So Roadster will longer be in the post (17) that no horse has ever won from... that "honor" now goes to Long Range Toddy.

Re: Omaha Beach out!

He was my top pick.... Have to really feel for his owner and trainer, both of whom are getting along in years. On the positive side he should be able to come back as good if not better than ever and hopefully be able to run in a lot of big races during the second half of the year.

Re: 2019 Kentucky Derby

Looks like the weather forecast for Saturday has changed for the worse with a very high percentage of rain and a wet track.

Re: 2019 Kentucky Derby

Omaha Beach is at the top of my list followed by Roadster and Game Winner. Game Winner has always shown to be right there at the wire and will keep his rider for the big race. War of Will looked great in his final work and while I still need to look over his pp's, traditionally the Fairgrounds hasn'...

Re: 2019 Kentucky Derby

Omaha Beach and War of Will were the standouts of this morning's works. The question mark, however, surrounding WoW centers around his LA Derby performance.

War of Will looked fantastic.
Steve Byk is at CD for the two weeks leading-up to the Derby and made a similar comment about War of Will on ATR... quite the physical specimen.

Re: Kentucky Derby Top 5

Now that Smith has chosen Omaha Beach, it further solidifies him as my top pick in the Derby. Seeing him alongside Improbable as the two of them entered the stretch in the Arkansas Derby, with Ortiz pushing on Improbable while Smith sat still on Omaha Beach, it was clearly evident that Omaha Beach w...

Re: Kentucky Derby Top 5

1. Roadster--he's good and getting better. 2. Omaha Beach--fast, improving and a good head. 3. Maximum Security--fast but will need to rate because he won't get that pace this time. 4. Bodexpress--the most improved horse in the race; could shock the world. 5. Owendale--bounced back and looked good ...

Re: Kentucky Derby Top 5

Omaha Beach Maximum Security Game Winner (Not as brilliant as some others, but always there at the end) Improbable Tacitus/Roadster One unusual aspect of this Derby is that none of the Baffert contingent have been all that quick out of the gate/the first 1/4-mile. I've heard him mention the importan...

A 101 BSF for Omaha Beach. That puts him right up there at the top of the list with Maximum Security.

Re: Arkansas Derby G1 Million Dollars

Omaha Beach reminds me of American Pharoah in more ways than one. I'll go out on a limb and predict that Smith goes with Omaha Beach for the Derby.

Re: Kentucky Derby Top 5

It would be ironic in a way if the West's win the Derby with Maximum Security rather than the 2yo champ that's received most of the press and who also has the top Derby trainer.
