There are so many horses this year that are outstanding, I can’t believe it. How does one decide who to pick for their favorite? Can I just pick them all? Nyquist kicked butt over the weekend (if you count the holiday as part of the weekend), but I don’t want to pronounce him my winner yet. There is plenty of time. Plenty can happen between now and Derby Day. I hope and pray they all stay safe and sound and it’ll only be a matter of training, raw talent, maturity, growing, and heart. Who will have the most of those attributes on the first Saturday in May?
Although, I am really, really, happy for Doug O’Neill, Mario Gutierrez and their crew. 🙂
“Even those expecting an exciting race in the first meaningful showdown between Kentucky Derby prospects Nyquist and Exaggerator were left speechless.”
