Derby Pedigrees Examined

From bloodhorse.com: In terms of depth, this year's 3-year-old crop is shaping up to be the best since 2007, which gave us Street Sense (TrueNicks,SRO), Curlin (TrueNicks,SRO), Rags to Riches, Hard Spun (TrueNicks,SRO), and Any Given Saturday (TrueNicks,SRO). Nine days out from the Kentucky Derby, the field looks to be highly competitive with most of the top contenders bred to excel at the added distances of the Triple Crown races. Here's a brief rundown of the top 20 contenders with links to their TrueNicks reports to assist in your analysis.

1. Amazingly great field this year.

Money to be made in this field.

I'm a big fan of Union Rags--- Didn't do well in the Fl. Derby--- toss that race out. 5:1

Bodemeister toyed with the field in the Arkansas Derby... might be a Super Horse in the making. 9:2

Gemologist is undefeated and has a terrific racing heart and lot's of speed. 7:1

I'll Have Another---great closer---big heart.... 10:1

Take Charge Indy--- I never discount a Fl. Derby winner. 12:1

Picks:
Bodemeister
Union Rags
I'll Have Another

Might change my mind at the window.

2. I throw out Union Rags FLDerby also....

he's better than he looked. Take Charge Indy has the pedigree (AP Indy and Take Charge Lady) and Gemologist impressed the hell out of me in the Wood.
