Any thoughts? Bodemeister (4-1) is the favorite and has the fastest and most consistent Beyer ratings. However if he wins he will be the first horse in 130 years to not run as a two year old. Union Rags. (9-2) 2nd favorite. Would be the favorite but was upset by Take Charge Indy (15-1) in the Florida Derby. Take Charge Indy is an interesting pick since he will be ridden by Calvin Borel who as most people know has won three of the last five Kentucky Derbies. Many feel that Take Charge Indy would have to run an absolute perfect race to win but you could say that about any horse in this 20 horse field. Creative Cause (12-1) is the only horse to have beaten Bodemeister so that warrants some consideration. However in his last race he lost to I'll Have Another (12-1) who has won his last two races. Gemologist (6-1) is the only horse that is undefeated and has won twice on this track. I'm not convinced yet which way I am going, but I really like Bodemeister and Take Charge Indy. However, I know some people think Union Rags is still the best horse in the field, so I might use him in some exacta combos as well. Still plenty of time to decide.
