Happy presidents day everyone, we have 2 derby preps today, with the return of last years chanpion 2yr old Nyquist and his always coming up short (untill last race) friend, Exagerator.
While both are using this as preps before going longer, Nyquist might just be that good that he can win off the long layoff. If you want to get cute to try and beat the favorite, id look at SHIEK OF SHIEKS, might be able to clear from the outside and wire this field.
In the southwest, i like SYNCRONY to turn the tables on the Smarty Jones crew that comes back here. Should be able to sit off the pace which i expect could be fairly hot! WHITMORE looks interesting as well at 5-1. Should sit off the pace, and his breeding suggests hell only improve as he goes longer.
