The Louisiana Derby at The Fair Grounds…
We enter the 3-year old season finally! I said after checking the speed figs on War of Will win the Risen Star, that the winner of the KD hadn’t raced this year. To my eye, War of Will is a stud horse, but that would be on the Turf. His rating right now is so below par for a Kentucky Derby horse, it’s not funny. I was very favorable to him, giving him lots of credit for his bad post positions and difficult “wide” trips. With all of that, I still couldn’t make a rating of 75.0 or higher. This is astoundingly slow for an end of March colt with the KD in his sites. But here is the crazy, he rates out much faster than the competition, but the competition is starting to develop – maybe! This Louisiana Derby may set us up for an amazing KD. Think about it, if War of Will continues to win in Louisiana, and he continues to post low dirt figures – he may go to Kentucky as the chalk. That would be sweet – in my opinion.
There is lots of handicapping to do… so get to work and if you take my advise… don’t be squandering your cash on the chalk tomorrow… if he wins, there will be plenty of opportunity to win your money back a little later on down the line… say on the first Saturday in May.
