4 weeks to the Derby

We had a big Derby Prep weekend-The Wood Memorial at Aqueduct, The Santa Anita Derby and the Illinois Derby. Of all the winners of these 3 preps the most impressive too me was Colonel John, winner of the Santa Anita Derby. This horse has moved up to my top 3 of the Derby along with Pyro and Big Brown. I think Colonel John will have no problem going the 1-1/4 mile at Churchill Downs. War Pass was a game second in the Wood but I just don't think he can go 1 1/4 mile at Churchill and don't seem him in the money if he runs on Derby Day. Tale of Etaki with the win at the Wood will now race in the Derby. Good to see Barclay Tagg with another Derby horse.
