My Pick for the Kentucky Derby

May 1, 2016

American thoroughbred racing has a long tradition going back to our own Colonial era. And every year the Kentucky Derby calls attention to the Triple Crown. This year’s Kentucky Derby will be held on Saturday, May  7, at Churchill Downs.

There are some very good horses in this year’s Derby and Nyquist is one of the best. Bu I like a 50-1 shot whose name is Toms Ready.

Toms Ready represents some breeding lines that include Broad Brush and Ack Ack, two of my favorite American thoroughbred horses.

Why? Horses out of Broad Brush have the knack of coming in second most of the time and horses whose pedigree can be traced to Ack Ack consistently win. That pedigree is the equivalent of an energy drink and at 50-1 Broad Brush should be included in Exacta wagers and in Win, Place, Show wagers.
