Looking like the T.B. players that were active on here in days gone by have either moved on or passed on !

I thought Mage was the better horse yesterday tho he lost to Forte at Gulfstream   Saez moved very early when he could have just stuck to Forte's hip and got run down late.  That said, both are deep closers and that doesn't work well in the Derby.

I thought Angel of Empire looked visually impressive at Oaklawn but he beat crows.  He's a deep closer too.

Kingsbams is probably the one I would bet if I had to choose right now before the SA Derby, Wood and Blue Grass.  I thought he was terrific in the La Derby, he's won on three very different surfaces.  Also,,, Pletcher, Uncle Mo, on the pace type... lots to like.

Looking forward to next week.

I know the owners of Confidence Game. I hope they decide to race in the derby, even though I hate thoroughbreds.
I'm a rotten bastard and an atheist.
