Reply To: Derby Horses


Cheryl – Great choice. I am sure others will agree with your pick. No doubt California Chrome is the class of the field. My only concern is that favorites rarely win the Derby. I compare three-year old horses at this time of year to 16 year old boys – some mature early and some later. The favorites are the horses that have matured early. There are horses in the field that are just maturing and they will be among the favorites for the rest of the year. The challenge is to identify those that are about to blossom.
