Hello Horse Racing Fans! What an exciting day we have as we are approaching the Kentucky Derby very quickly the $1 Million Arkansas Derby is one of the biggest Prep races around. In Oaklawn park Race 11 this grade 1 will take place.
Today I think the pick is going to be the Bob Baffert Horse Bodemeister. This horse has a ton of talent and appears to be getting better and better which each starts. Only has 3 lifetime starts so and a tough post position on 11 but he is lightly raced and that might work against him. As I look at this race up and down this horse has the talent to make it happen and will show us what he his made of like he did in the San Felipe. The graded earnings cut off is very high this year and he is falling short. This is a have to win race for Bodemeister.
We are not sure if Secret Circle can handle this distance so I am not real sure if this horse can handle it. This horse has came a long way and we were surprised at the effort it has put so far. Hopefully he can pull it off but I am saying no on Secret Circle.
Saber Cat only has one start and layoff stats not really that good. This horse has the earnings and we will really see what kind of horse that he is. I think he will improve but not run better than the rest.
Isn’t He Clever has been a solid horse and looked to be a unlucky loser with a fast pace. If this horse runs equally well like he did last race could be one to contend with Bodemeister. Look for a good effort from this horse. Does not have the earnings and needs to put up a good race. A mile 1 1/8th might but too long but we will see the race he puts up.
So those are the top 3 horses that I see playing a factor in this race with my money on Bodemeister. I think this race will put him back in the top 20 contenders for the Kentucky Derby.
