Here’s a list of possible starters for next week’s Kentucky Derby: Derby 2008.
The experts are divided between Big Brown, Colonel John and Pyro as their picks. You can see their picks on that page, above. You can also see all the horses’ recent race results. Pyro was the overwhelming favorite until he finished 10th in the Blue Grass last time out, behind Monba. I like Big Brown because he has such a long stride, he blew past everyone and won the Florida Derby last time out. Of course, the same can be said of Colonel John, who won the Santa Anita Derby. Florida Derby winners just seem to do better in the Kentucky Derby for some reason.
