It looks like Eskendereya will be the odds on favorite come Kentucky Derby time after his impressive looking win in the Wood Memorial at the Big A. (By the way, nice turnout of 8,553 fans/horse players, about 3,500 more than I predicted would show up in my last post).
Over the next 4 weeks, two camps will develop-those that think Eskendereya is the real thing, and the other camp that will be eager to bet against the likely favorite.
Of course the easiest bet is that the name of the horse will be more mispronounced than not leading up to the Kentucky Derby.
For the record Eskendereya is pronounced S-Ken-DREY-uh
