    I like your picks i have Ride On Curlin because i think that he could be a factor
  • Got Lucky and Untappable for the Oaks. For the derby gonna go with California Chrome, Samraat and Wicked Strong.
  • I really like My Miss Sophia in the Oaks.
  • i think Untappable is the best looking horse in the Oaks and then of course Cali Chrome is the best looking horse in the Derby right now once again just my opinion
    My Miss Sophia is a really good horse though to
  • I think Untappable is going to take the Oaks.
  • same here i think Untappable is going to take the Oaks and then i am hoping that Cali Chrome is going to take the Derby
  • Untappable and Roslind have the most impressive works at CD last week, turning heads. Fashion Plate arrived today with CC and DWF from California, but TVG's Brittany Eurton said her works at SA were very impressive. Love Sugar Shock's last race.
    Love California Chrome, the only way he looses is a bad break with traffic trouble. I have always liked Samraat. His Wood was not his best effort but he didn't need it so I don't believe they went all out on him, it was a prep race, he did what he needed to do. Wicked Strong was impressive in the Wood and he did need to be. But I wonder if Samraat was running for needed points, would it have been a different race? That is why Samraat is ahead of Wicked Strong on my list.
  • yea i agree with you on the Untappable and Rosalind its going to come down to those two in the Oaks in my opinion. and i also agree with you on the only way that Cali Chrome gets beat is if he gets post position 1 and he gets squeezed just like Lookin At Lucky did in the 2010 derby when he probably would of beat Super Saver

    Untapable drew outside post in the draw this morning (13). :\
  • Wicked Strong reminds me of The Wicked North. So if I was betting person I'd place 2 dollars on CC and WS each to win.
  • That outside position might really be of benefit. The Oaks don't have as many horses so there is a bit less traffic. By staying outside you can stay clear of those first strides that causes so many traffic jams. Of course, being on the outside you have to travel further so that is a disadvantage.

    agreed. my only hope is that Cali Chrome gets the post position that will be a benefit to him because i had picked Lookin At Lucky in the 2010 Kentucky Derby i believe it was mainly because i thought he was the top 3 year old in the race plus i saw many of his workouts at Churchill Downs in person so i had a ton of faith in him i think that the reason why Lucky didnt win the Derby that year was because he got squeezed at the beginning because he was in post position 1 so lets hope that Cali Chrome doesnt get post position 1
