All Derby, All the Time

The Star-Ledger, which usually does a nice job covering the ponies, has an excellent section handicapping the field of the Run for the Roses. Check it out here.

After some careful consideration, I do declare that my selections on the trifecta are Afleet Alex to win, Bandini to place and Bellamy Road to show. I think High Fly is out of the money and I wouldn't put it past Bandini to win it all, so I might consider an exacta box on Afleet and Bandini. If you have no clue what I'm talking about, then we clearly need to go spend some time at the Big M.

Oh, and my long shot across the board is probably Sun King (his sire is 1999 Derby & Preakness winner Charismatic, whom I really loved).
