analysis of the only maiden in the 2017 Kentucky Derby, in the only appropriate form

though Sonneteer is 0 for 10 — a flaw —
he’s more than just a Trojan Nation two
in both the final preps in Arkansas
his late pace shined, a rally did ensue
his hooves are crossed the speed gets in a fight
that Always Dreaming, Fast and Accurate,
Irap, and State of Honor come to light
along the front, a blazing fire lit
his stamina should have him running late
he also has some form on wetter ground
and in the irons a veteran team-mate:
as three times Kent Desormeaux roses found
you will not see a winner in this verse
but as a longshot under, there are worse
