There has been a lot of hype about this horse, he cost a vast amount of money as a yearling and has high profile owners, but his two wins in non-black type races don’t really entitle him to be Kentucky Derby favourite.
I’d wait and see what he does this weekend before risking any money on him.
He has zero GSW (Graded Stakes Winnings).
As things stand he won’t get in to the KY Derby and he needs to run top two in the Florida version (major competition from Quality Road) to get entry, or alternatively run in a race later in April – Wood Memorial would seem the most likely but that would mean shipping up to New York.
Might well be the best horse in the race and he has been impressive and cost a ton but at the prices there are better value bets out there – Quality Road, Pioneer ofthe Nile and The Pamplemousse to name but three.
Thanks for the replies guys, I will place a smaller wager on him before the race on Sat, by the sound of it if he wins his Kentucky price will disappear, but I won’t be playing big on that until I get a better idea come Sat night.
