That is very possible. I can count on one hand IMO the number of legit contenders right now. Doesnt appear to be a very strong 3 year old group so far, odviously that can and very likely will change. Looking at the derby Pool Future closing odds from this past weekend I can count on one hand the amount of serious contenders. Those being Orb,Flashback, Itsmyluckyday and maybe Revolutionary.
1 horse that I am interested in greatly is Balance the Books, so far a turf horse only he will be winning the Bluegrass at Keenland to become qualified. May run in the Spiral at Turfway on March 22nd as well. If he has improved from 2 to 3 which theres no reason why he wouldnt he will instantly become a major player for the derby. Can get him at 65-1 right now offshore maybe better in Vegas, not sure.
