Right now, of course it's Funny Cide. I think that Mine That Bird still has some time though. Him being a gedling, he has plenty of years of run left in him. There won't be a rush to the breeding shed. His running style might not give him a huge edge in wins, but he is exciting to watch and I think that he has at least a couple of Grade I's left in him next year. And there is still a race left this year as well...
As you know I've been doing private Kentucky Derby handicapping figures since 1972.
Taking into consideration ground loss, wind velocity, degree of banked turns and temperature, the top two figures in the past 37 years belong to Secretariat and Giacomo. But it is very close between those two, make no mistake about it.
So in a race the three aformentioned horses in your survey, all I can say is that it would be a nice battle between Funny Cide and Mine That Bird to see who would complete the exacta.
Women and cats will do as they please, and men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea.

The question I think was just out of the three choices listed. None of the three sniff the top 50 greatest Derby Winner.[/quote]
Strike The Gold will have to be my write in candidate, and he fits well with the group mentioned above.
