Orb to me is by far the most likely horse in the Derby to hit the board. With the bets you have if you get a decent draw and make it to the gate you will have a big shot. The fact he did not run that fast over the weekend might be a blessing in disguise. Looks like he bounced a little from his prior effort and still got it done. The more tiring Churchill surface should really move him up also.[/quote]
Orb has closed into a hot pace and a slow pace.That in itself is awesome.Reminds me of AP Indy's sow SA Derby,or Ill Have Another.He runs as fast as he has to.In a way,like Zenyatta.Time really means nothing to a closer or grinder.
Mylute was impressive to me and very impressive-looking. Did everything Rev did (big close), just waited a little longer to start it. Rev showed some gonies not getting passed late. They had a big field also, and had to go 5-6 wide for their runs.
I'm liking Governor Charlie more and more as contenders like Code West and Shanghai Bobby drop off the radar screen.
I only watched that race once but I thought Mylute hung pretty significantly. Low fig isnt helping his case. Maybe Im alittle biased because I needed him for a 153 dollar pick 3 a bunch of times.
Easy exacta, though!
Read the Chart comments - too long to type-out here.
Where do you go to see the charts after the day of the race for free?

Thanks. Looks like about 3/4 of the field had very troubled trips.
Sunbeam had a brutal trip.
MyLute -a horse I wagered on at 27-1 in the Delta Jackpot and hung pretty bad after making a huge move, is one of the biggest hangers in the history of organized sport. He may run 3rd or 4th in the Derby and that's only if he has a 2 length lead in mid-stretch.
Women and cats will do as they please, and men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea.
