    Havnt seen a KD prediction thread yet so here it is.
    Verrazano is the favorite I suppose. Undefeated, won the Wood memorial on the weekend and Pletcher said he was still never headed. He just may be a freak.
    Orb is the other big horse. JR still hasn't committed to either horse. It would seem that Verrazano would be the pick but still no decision.
    Pletcher seemed a bit irritated about it, said he needed a decision very soon.
    So for me its Orb or Verrazano.
    Anyone else have any ideas?

    I like Orb with Black Onyx and Oxbow as longer shots. Post positions might change the outlook.

    I like Orb and Verrazano. Normandy Invasion was closing well yesterday also. I have a $10.00 future on Will Take Charge at 300-1 that would make me very happy if he won!

    My prediction is that a pretty horse owned by a millionaire will win the race while animal lovers protest it.

    Don, we wont hold you to a pick.
    I am interested to know who you have your eye on and why.

    FYI John Velazquez hopes to be riding in 1 to 2 weeks and will be available for the Derby

    The Hall of Fame jockey said he was hopeful of riding “in one to two weeks,” which would keep him on course for the May 4 Derby.

    Goldencents is the one I want to win but I can't put any money down until I see who he's running against. Kevin Krigger, the jock that's riding him has worked his butt off to get to the big time and I think he's a very good jockey.

    Excuse my ignorance, what is an electronic form?

    I am going with Goldencents ATB, Orb-Normandy Invasion exacta box, and Orb to win (among other bets--but these are my biggest plays).

    It's just the form that I get off of the internet as apposed to the paper one that you buy at the track or store. It comes in a PDF format and you can view it on your computer or print it out.

    Vyjacks trainer has been giving him the juice the last few races and now has cameras in the stall for compliancy. Crossing him off my sheet.

    life has gotten in the way of my handicapping. i of course know who pletcher and lukas and o'neil are, but who is c. brown, the trainer of normandy invasion. this is the horse that was closing a little in the wood? or was the winner just so far out that the whip went away?
