Top 20 Kentucky Derby Prospects #3

Ky

New to the Top 20: Wildcat Red, General A Rod, Intense Holiday, Albano
Dropped Out: Gold Hawk, Vicar’s In Trouble, Chitu, Bond Holder

We’ve also thrown in the 2014 Kentucky Derby Future Wager (KDFW) Pool 3 Morning Line odds.

1. Top Billing (8-1 KDFW Morning Line) – A loss over a speed favoring Gulfstream track doesn’t have me wavering on him much at all.  He got another race under his belt, and the mile and one-eighth Florida Derby should be in his favor.  Maybe he’s not a super horse, but as of now the Kentucky Derby sets up best for him.

2. Cairo Prince (8-1) – He’s without question the best horse in the crop at this current time.  Can he get the mile and one quarter distance of the Derby…I’m still not sure, but the horses he’s beaten have went on to run extremely well.  Top Billing vs. Cairo Prince in the Florida Derby would be rather interesting!

3. Tapiture (15-1) – His dominating Southwest win lands him in this spot, and also stamps him as a major player from here on out.  He did get a perfect trip, but you have to give the horse credit for taking advantage of it, and crushing most of the field.  His rematch in the Rebel with Strong Mandate will be fun…

4. Strong Mandate (20-1) – This horse is becoming famous for brutal trips.  Pretty much everything that could possibly go wrong did in the Southwest, but he still battled gamely and finished a well clear second in that race.  You have to like the education he’s gotten so far.  Eventually he’s going to get the trip, and then we’ll find out just how talented he might be.

5. Candy Boy (20-1) – Had to like his race in the Robert Lewis, and like I suspected it looks like he’s going to like the extra distance that is sure to come next time out.  I didn’t think he could beat Midnight Hawk at the Lewis distance, but he did.

6. Shared Belief (12-1) – The news has been more positive lately for Shared Belief fans as he’s back in training and seems to be somewhat back on the Derby Trail.  However, we are all still on hold with him to see what happens and where he runs.

7. Honor Code (10-1) – It’s looks like the Rebel Stakes at Oaklawn could be his return race which would be entertaining to say the least considering he’d likely face Tapiture and Strong Mandate.  How he and Shared Belief progress off their respective set backs still are a major story line.

8. Samraat (30-1) – Now it looks like he will be running in this weekend’s Gotham Stakes, so we’ll see if he can remain unbeaten.  Nobody is really talking about this horse much, but he’s sneaking up the list.  Another big win this weekend would progress him even further.

9. Intense Holiday (15-1) – It was a brilliant move to by Todd Pletcher to send Intense Holiday to Fair Grounds, as he benefited from the long stretch run to win the Risen Star.  The win throws his name into the mix, and Churchill Downs should be kind to Intense Holiday as it has a long stretch as well.  All along this has been a sneaky good horse for Pletcher…the mile and one-quarter could make him even more dangerous.

10. Constitution (20-1) – He was the winner of the “super allowance” race on Fountain of Youth day, and earned a 98 beyer in the process.  The lightly race colt is now 2 for 2 so lets see if he can pick up some derby points next time out.  His chances will be limited.

11. Bayern (15-1) – I’m not ready to be over the moon about him yet, but that allowance win at Santa Anita was eye-catching.  He’ll have to prove it against the top California competition next, but you would think if he can bring that race again he can win.

12. Bobby’s Kitten (6-1 “All Others”) – Loads of talent…but can he run on the dirt?  The plan is to try the Bluegrass Stakes at Keeneland, and then move on to Churchill if he runs well in that race.  He’s as classy as they come, and if they can get him qualified he might have a say in things.  In the past turf horses have actually ran well over the Churchill Downs dirt track.

13. Wildcat Red (20-1) – The track helped Wildcat Red win the Fountain of Youth, but that doesn’t mean it wasn’t an impressive victory.  The horse has shown a tremendous amount of heart, and his early speed will always make him dangerous.  I don’t think the mile and one-quarter is up his alley, but he’s earned the right to take a chance at it.

14. General A Rod (20-1) – He beat Wildcat Red the first time they met, but lost when it counted most in the Fountain of Youth.  However, it was by a narrow margin, and he the two will probably be pointing towards the same race again next time out.

15. Commissioner (6-1 “All Others”) – Not ready to close the door on Commissioner yet as the track was playing too fast, and the mile and one sixteenth distance of the Fountain of Youth was too sharp for him under those conditions.  He’ll make his next start away from Gulfstream Park which will be good, and I expect him to run much better.

16. Uncle Sigh (50-1) – I’ll be honest in saying I wasn’t totally sold on him going into the Withers, but he showed a ton of heart and more importantly talent in that race.  The distance of the Derby could be questionable, but he’s worth a solid mention at this point.  We’ll see if he can turn the tables on Samraat this weekend in the Gotham.

17. Mexicoma (6-1 “All Others”) – Finished third in the allowance race with Constitution, but much like Top Billing that track just didn’t fit Mexicoma’s running style.  We’ll give him one more chance before he falls off the list.

18. Midnight Hawk (6-1 “All Others”) – I’m not ready to jump completely off his bandwagon, but as I said last week I don’t think this is a distance horse.  He stays on the list because I still think he’ll make some noise on the Derby Trail in California.

19. Albano (30-1) – Larry Jones is back in derby contention once again.  If the Risen Star were run at any other race track in the country Albano would have probably won the race, but he just couldn’t hold off the late run from Intense Holiday on that long Fair Grounds stretch.  Still, this horse showed a lot of progression, and could be the real sleeper of the bunch.

20. Tamarando (30-1) – I’ll keep him on the list just because of his consistency.  Other horses may be better at times, but this one just shows up and runs his race every time they ask him to do so.

Oaklawn Report #7

Aireofdistinction Takes the Spring Fever

Aireofdistinction Takes the Spring Fever

Three Stars of the Week

– 1st Star: Aireofdistinction (KY) – Even though Oaklawn only had one stakes race this week, Aireofdistinction made it count!  Race caller Frank Mirahmadi pretty much gave up on her at the top of the stretch, but out of nowhere Aireofdistinction re-rallied and took the Spring Fever by a nose over Chortle in a photo finish.  The win gives Aireofdistinction four victories in a row, and could propel her into a graded stakes try next time out.

– 2nd Star: Donoharm (KY) – Last year’s Fifth Season and Essex winner was back in the winners circle Sunday, winning an allowance race by a length and a half over Flashy Sunrise.  It’s a win that is long over due as his form hasn’t been great since those two big wins last year.  Perhaps he’s back on track now, and could possibly be pointing towards a run in the Razorback or Oaklawn Handicap next.

– 3rd Star: Unstoppable Colby (KY) – The Lukas/Zayat team has been hot this of late at Oaklawn, and the maiden special weight win by Unstoppable Colby might be the most significant.  Thursday’s mile and one-sixteenth victory came in wire to wire fashion as he turned back two hard closing rivals to win by a little less than a length.  We know he’ll be in a stakes next time out, it’s just a matter of which one they choose.  We’ll see if his second attempt to earn derby points works out better than his first.

Flop of the Week

Broken Blues (KY) – It’s probably a little unfair that she lands in this spot, but there really wasn’t any other horse to put here this week.  Broken Blues was a disappointing favorite in a Thursday allowance race, but may have simply been a little outclassed.  We aren’t going to give her too hard of a time for that performance.

Racing Dudes Handicapping Challenge: Halterman vs. Von Hemel

PP Unbridle's Note

Trust us, we’ve heard it all. “You suck at handicapping”. “You don’t provide value”. And my favorite, “Try picking something other than favorites. No skills. Keep up the average work” (Thanks Trace). This game is hard folks. But hey, we get it. Everyone has an opinion. We just try to do as good of a job of a possible so that you might find what we do valuable.

With all that said, we thought we would open this up a bit to some friendly competition! I introduce to you, the first installment of the Racing Dudes Handicapping Challenge.

Each weekend we will select 8 to 10 races from around the country and offer up a little handicapping challenge. Old school rules apply…winner stays, loser walks. This week’s challenge pairs up two fierce opponents:

Resident Dude Aaron Halterman vs. Super Farrier Kelby Von Hemel

The rules are simple. Fake $2 Win/Place wagers ($2 to Win and $2 to Place) will be made on the horse a player selects in each race. Only one horse may be selected per race. If a player’s horse wins, the player score is credited on both the Win and Place payouts. If the horse finishes second, the player score is credited only on the Place payout. And just so we’re clear, all wagers and payouts from races are NOT REAL and will be used for scoring purposes only. (Had to say it)

In the event of a late scratch, players may change picks provided given race has not started. If picks have already closed, the scratched horse will be replaced with the post-time favorite for that race.

Today’s challenge races:

1  Gulfstream Park  Race 4 (1:07 CST)

2  Gulfstream Park  Race 7 (2:34 CST)

3  Aqueduct  Race 8 (2:48 CST)

4  Gulfstream Park  Race 9 (3:33 CST)

5  Oaklawn Park  Race 6 (3:46 CST)

6  Fair Grounds  Race 7 (4:25 CST)

7  Oaklawn Park  Race 8 (4:42 CST)

8  Oaklawn Park  Race 9 (5:10 CST)

9  Santa Anita Park  Race 8 (6:07 CST)

The picks:

Top 20 Kentucky Derby Prospects #3

Ky

New to the Top 20: Bayern, Tamarando
Dropped Out: Louies Flower, Indianapolis

1. Top Billing – The next step towards Kentucky is this weekend in the Fountain of Youth Stakes on Saturday.  He drew post twelve in a field of thirteen, but the outside post shouldn’t bother him much as he usually drops towards the back right away.  Lets see if he can turn the tables on Commissioner this time.

2. Tapiture – His dominating Southwest win lands him in this spot, and also stamps him as a major player from here on out.  He did get a perfect trip, but you have to give the horse credit for taking advantage of it, and crushing most of the field.  His rematch in the Rebel with Strong Mandate will be interesting…

3. Strong Mandate – This horse is becoming famous for brutal trips.  Pretty much everything that could possibly go wrong did in the Southwest, but he still battled gamely and finished a well clear second in that race.  You have to like the education he’s gotten so far.  Eventually he’s going to get the trip, and then we’ll find out just how talented he might be.

4. Candy Boy – Had to like his race in the Robert Lewis, and like I suspected it looks like he’s going to like the extra distance that is sure to come next time out.  I didn’t think he could beat Midnight Hawk at the Lewis distance, but he did.

5. Commissioner – With a win in the Fountain of Youth this Saturday he could move up to number one on the list.  We know distance won’t be any sort of issue with him, but can he overcome the rail and what will likely be a fast closing Top Billing?

6. Cairo Prince – The Holy Bull was an eye-opening race!  The field looked somewhat evenly matched, but Cairo Prince blew away the competition.  He might be the most talented horse in the entire crop.  All systems are go for him except one little issue that keeps creeping up in my mind…will he be completely effective at a mile and a quarter?

7. Shared Belief – The news has been more positive lately for Shared Belief fans as he’s back in training and seems to be somewhat back on the Derby Trail.  However, we are all still on hold with him to see what happens and where he runs.

8. Honor Code – It’s looks like the Rebel Stakes at Oaklawn could be his return race which would be entertaining to say the least considering he’d likely face Tapiture and Strong Mandate.  How he and Shared Belief progress off their respective set backs still are a major story line.

9. Gold Hawk – Entered in a deep Risen Star field this weekend, and will look to redeem him self for a third place effort last time out in the Lecomte.  I’ve stuck by his side through that race, and hopefully re rewards me for that on Saturday.

10. Samraat  – After that performance in the Withers, this one is now a player.  I can’t remember being so surprised by a race, but it’s always nice when that happens!  They are talking like one more prep race is in order before a trip to Kentucky.

11. Mexicoma – Makes his 2013 debut in an ULTRA tough allowance field at Gulfstream this weekend.  Obviously a stakes could be next as long as the horse runs well.

12. Bayern – I’m not ready to be over the moon about him yet, but that allowance win at Santa Anita was eye-catching.  He’ll have to prove it against the top California competition next, but you would think if he can bring that race again he can win.

13. Bobby’s Kitten – Loads of talent…but can he run on the dirt?  The plan is to try the Bluegrass Stakes at Keeneland, and then move on to Churchill if he runs well in that race.  He’s as classy as they come, and if they can get him qualified he might have a say in things.  In the past turf horses have actually ran well over the Churchill Downs dirt track.

14. Vicar’s In Trouble – Draws the far outside for a competitive Risen Star Stakes this Saturday.  Will the post and the added distance do him in, or will he move up the list and become a major player?

15. Uncle Sigh – I’ll be honest in saying I wasn’t totally sold on him going into the Withers, but he showed a ton of heart and more importantly talent in that race.  The distance of the Derby could be questionable, but he’s worth a solid mention at this point.

16 Constitution – He runs in the same race as Mexicoma this Saturday at Gulfstream so you can see just how strong that race is going to be.  His progression will have to be fairly fast for him to make a huge impact on the Derby Trail, but we’ve seen it done before.

17 Midnight Hawk – I’m not ready to jump completely off his bandwagon, but as I said last week I don’t think this is a distance horse.  He stays on the list because I still think he’ll make some noise on the Derby Trail in California.

18 Chitu – Pretty impressive race by him in his first Stakes action, and to be honest I think him and Midnight Hawk about pretty much the same sort of horse.  With California looking a little thin right now with the question mark of Shared Belief, Chitu can make some noise.

19. Bond Holder – Scratching from the Risen Star which is concerning…now pointing towards the San Felipe.

20. Tamarando – I don’t think he can win the Derby, but he’s got a decent chance to get there now.  He’s a respectable horse that continues to be solid, and has been beaten by very good horses each time he’s lost.
