Reacting to Change

A lot of Derby news so far this week!

  • Derby Favorite Eskendereya was withdrawn from the Derby.
  • Rule was also withdrawn.
  • Lookin at Lucky is now the new 3/1 Derby Favorite (whether he deserves it or not).
  • Endorsement is possibly facing some physical issues.

How does a horseplayer handle these developments? Here is what I would recommend:

  • Don't lock into any horse right now.
  • Realize the remaining horses, on speed figures, are very, very close together. This is the most "wide open" Derby I can remember in my 22 years watching and betting the race.
  • Get as much information from "alternative media" as you can - twitter, facebook, DRF,
  • and live chats.
  • Try to ELIMINATE as many horses as possible without eliminating the winner!

Good luck, and if there is anything to post I will do so on Tuesday. Otherwise I will look at the field after the Wednesday afternoon draw.

Happy betting!
