Kentucky Derby Picks

There are three clear cut favorites today in the field. Big Brown, Colonel John and Pyro. Big Brown was very impressive in his win at the Florida Derby @ Gulfstream and there is a chance that he runs away with it today. However, he is in the 20 hole which could pose a problem. He will probably go off as a 2-1 favorite so I am passing.

Colonel John is currently 4-1 and should go off in that range. 5-1 would be a tempting win play.

Long shots- Court Vision is currently at 15-1. He is a closer and could make this interesting
Visionaire is 20-1 and a real sleeper.
Monba- 15-1.

The pick- Colonel John gets the nod.
Exacta Box- Colonel John, Court Vision and Visionaire. I may add Big Brown to the Exacta in case he is the real deal...
