Re: Roadster

My uncle might have to change his mind now after seeing Roadster with the winless #17 post. Roadster doesn't seem to be getting any Derby luck when he loses his rider and gets a dreaded post. I remember back in 2006 when Brother Derek and Lawyer Ron both got terrible posts. Some years, the draw does...

Re: Roadster

I texted my uncle the yesterday and asked him who he liked in the Derby? He said Roadster all the way. His opinion do matter to me because he hit $14K in the 2013 BC Classic when Bayern won it. I forgot what wager had. My uncle is only 12-years older than me (age 50) but he's a degenerate gambler wh...

Re: Kentucky Derby Top 5

Steve Haskin's Top 5 1. Omaha Beach 2. Game Winner 3. Tacitus 4. Roadster 5. Improbable 6. Maximum Security Steve's Top 5 is solid but he should toss Improbable out of the Top 5 and replace him with Maximum Security. And Tacitus is a little bit more superior to Game Winner. They're actually almost ...

Re: 2019 Kentucky Derby

One of the longest syllable Derby winner names since Fusaichi Pegasus if Maximum Security wins. Seven syllables. Many of us think of prison when we hear that name. Omaha Beach or Improbable sounds better for a Derby winner. Even War of Will who some people still like. I think where my perspective ch...

Re: Kentucky Derby Top 5

https://www.horseracingnation.com/news/Current_Kentucky_Derby_Odds_123p ^ Comments are hilarious! A couple of idiots arguing over horses. I might as well say it now, Maximum Security is my Derby horse. I already made my bet last week, so I don't care if his odds go down to 5-1 choice or lower. The o...

Re: Roadster

Changing jockeys with two of the three Baffert horses right before the big race is not a good sign. Roadster also has never raced outside California.

At least Game Winner still has Joel Rosario who has won the Derby before.

Re: 2019 Kentucky Derby

I thought last year had Mendelssohn run like he did in the UAE Derby, that he and Justify could've battled it down to the wire. Have our first Derby photo finish since 1996. Didn't happen. It could happen this year. There's really no standout. When Omaha Beach beat Game Winner and Improbable, it was...

Re: Roadster

The moment Mike Smith chose Omaha Beach is the moment Roadster went 3rd on my list to 6th. Roadster will be overbet simply off winning the Santa Anita Derby which was hardly faster than the other preps that was run that day. Game Winner and Improbable are a combined 0-4 this year. If they were train...

Re: 2019 Kentucky Derby

Along with Richard Mandella, Bill Mott is one of the trainers I'm rooting for to finally win the Kentucky Derby. His horse could end up being bet down as the 3rd choice. East Coast money will pour in late. He has the best last Brisnet speed figure. Finally, a recent Wood Memorial winner who might ac...

Re: Roadster

Game Winner and Improbable both lost all their preps so far. Roadster will be overbet simply because he won the Santa Anita Derby which was nothing special. I already have a Derby list that doesn't include any of these Baffert horses in my Top 3. I'm one of the biggest Baffert fans out there but he ...

Re: Kentucky Derby Top 5

I underestimated the Wood Memorial. I don't see much separation between the Baffert trio. Roadster might end up being the most overbet one. At least Game Winner and Improbable own a win at Churchill. I already have my Derby Top 10 on my notes after glancing 10 minutes from Brisnet's PPs. Actually a ...

Re: Kentucky Derby Top 5

Brisnet's PPs completely changed my perspective. I like this one particular horse from it and I would put him #1 right now over Omaha Beach. But I don't want to say his name. Don't want to hype it. I want his odds to stay in double digits. Pretty obvious if you check Brisnet's PPs which horse I'm al...

Re: Kentucky Derby Top 5

Thank you, Mike Smith, for picking Omaha Beach. Saves me money. Win one for Dick Mandella! It's the right move. Omaha Beach is the now horse and who knows if it rains? I do hope Mike gets his mount on Roadster back this summer. My wager stays put. Don't have to complicate it with a third wheel. I st...

Re: Kentucky Derby Top 5

December 25, 2018 - Improbable became my Derby horse. Now he's become my alternative behind Omaha Beach. When I saw OB at 16-1 on my Bovada account after he won the Rebel #2, I just knew he was such a good value play because I believed he would be the Derby fav or close to it if he ran well in his f...

Re: Kentucky Derby Top 5

Some of Baffert/Roadster fans are making it seem Roadster is the next Justify or Arrogate and that he's going to win the Triple Crown. And none of the comments was from Baffert fanatic Kaye from Pennsylvania. I'm not seeing it. I think Omaha Beach and Roadster are very close in ability. We'll just w...
