    used to follow more closely, but I'm going with the Pitino horse. can't make my real picks until I see them do the walkabout. Then I just pick the prettiest one. Usually works decently. Darn near had a Triple Crown winner pick back in 1998.

    I am being chalky and going with Orb, has been getting better numbers as the distance of his races have been getting longer. I loved his FL Derby run, was 3 wide the whole race. Rosario is the hottest jock in the country and hops aboard. Good luck to anyone who plays!

    I like Orb, Revolutionary and Vyjack. Palace Malice as the long shot (like the Jock and possible track conditions).

    Verrazano or Overanalyze, then Lines of Battle, Javas War. Starting away from favorites with the ****** weather.

    Re: ***Official Kentucky Derby Thread***

    My theory is never play the favorite, you want someone in the 2nd to 6th best odds. And then pick a cool name, cool names matter. So I like Revolutionary and Java's War.

    Minor caveat: I know absolutely nothing about horses that a 7 year-old does not know.
