- From February - Only three horses remain, some awlful choices like Notonthesamepage, Haynesfield and Flying Pegasus.
- From March - Really not that much better with four horses that remain, three horses on the list were injured.
- From April - You would think I would have at least named ten starters at this point. I was getting cute with Big Drama and Rachel Alexandra though.
If I had to pat myself on the back, it would be for identifying I Want Revenge as a possible Derby contender, but that and two bucks gets me a cup of coffee.
I'll probably end up off Quality Road, even if he goes. To win the Derby there can be no setbacks, no matter how minor.
One final thought, if Rachel Alexandra is in the Derby she'd be third or fourth choice - sandwiched somewhere between Pioneerof the Nile, Dunkirk, Friesan Fire and Quality Road.
