Default OT but it is time for the 134th Kentucky Derby

Posted By: Frank Wakefield

Here in the hills of The Commonwealth of Kentucky, land of beautiful horses and fast women, we're about to have ourselves a horse race. The 134th Kentucky Derby


And this is a link to the horse that I think will win, Colonel John, trained by an Irishman named Eoin Harty, who sports a Yankees cap on this page... http://www.kentuckyderby.com/2008/contenders/colonel-john

Colonel John has been running on that synthetic ground up tire California stuff for most of his life, but he ran on dirt Sunday, cranking out 5 furlongs in 57:80. That's a good time for you slab-heads. A really good time.

So wheel him, or box him, or do something. I think he'll be up there.


The Kentucky Derby is a bit of a strange race. First time these young horses have run this distance. It takes a good horse and a bit of fortune to win, can't win it on luck alone. Colonel John is a good horse.

With all the success lately from Arkansas Derby winners like Smarty Jones, Afleet Alex, Curlin and Lawyer Ron, don't ignore Gayego who might pay a good price. He isn't bred for the distance but is a game horse if he can get near the lead early. I box Big Brown and Gayego and add Z Fortune at a big price in the trifecta.

I have not been following this years's hopefuls as closely as I normally do, but I plan on having a flutter on Adriano. Strictly a hunch bet.

$100 on the nose on Big Brown. I expect him though to be 4:5 by post time.

I am looking forward to this. My grandfather had a horse and it won the Kentucky Derby in 1960. The name of the horse was Venetian Way. I was not even born but it is a pretty interesting piece of my family history.

Pyro will be completely overlooked after throwing in a dismal effort on that ground up tire stuff at Keeneland (that's not in California). A mediocre bunch this year, so go deep.

I've seen almost every prep race and there simply is no standout in this race, contrary to the chirpings of Big Brown's trainer Rick Dutrow. I am hoping they don't make Colonel John the favorite, because that could take him down. He should be along in time with Adriano coming up along. The Derby is a spectacle, but typically not a wise betting investment.
