Historically, Picks and Ponderings has done a point-counterpoint for the Kentucky Derby, with Paul Mazur and Chris Hernandez duking it out over the Derby field. However, since I joined Picks and Ponderings in the time since the last Derby, that point-counterpoint has become a roundtable.
A few horses we agree on. Others, less so. However, a field as contentious as the Derby provides fertile ground for a friendly little argument.
In our Derby preview, the three of us have our say on every horse in the field as well as provide our selections for who looks best set to take home the roses on Saturday afternoon. Head on over there, see who we like, and leave us a comment if you have anything to say!
Also, if the fillies are more your thing, or you are still handicapping Friday? We have also taken a dive into both the Kentucky Oaks and the La Troienne, the pair of Grade I races set for Churchill Downs on Friday. Make sure to read our previews, and let us know what you think!
