Sean's Take...

Concert Tour (#10):  For a while it looked as though he might be Bob Baffert’s best hope in the Derby, but he didn’t even end up making the race following a disappointing third-place finish in the G1 Arkansas Derby. I know he’s better than what he showed in that race, however he was exposed a bit in the Arkansas Derby against inferior competition and it’s a tall order for him to just snap back with the race of his life in this spot, particularly given the fact he may not truly want to go this far. It’s not exactly a vintage field that’s lined up for the G1 Preakness, but I have a hard time picking him over his stablemate at this distance, though he’s certainly among the contenders.

 

J.N.'s Take...

Up until the Arkansas Derby (G1), most were convinced the Gary and Mary West-owned colt had all the makings to be a KYD147 favorite. All he had to do was get the pink and black colors home against what looked to be a substandard field in Hot Springs. That failure gave trainer Bob Baffert the opportunity for some recalibration, and we all know what that means . . . Look out!

If his stablemate ends up being the favorite, then expect a reasonable price on this one out of Street Sense. Mike Smith takes the mount and the ante is going to be raised on his chances even more. Talk about some 2021 form . . . I could see a win coming his way, and that would set up things nicely for the Belmont S.

The Wests might have a budding star in their midst, and that means a possible run at the Breeders’ Cup Classic at Del Mar when November rolls around. With so much pressure on Baffert, this runner seems almost like an afterthought, doesn’t he? If he wins, will there be calls for him to be tested? The dark cloud will certainly remain. Baffert’s image and his legacy are at stake. Does he know it? We shall see . . .

Medina Spirit

  • Age: 3 /
  • Jockey: John Velazquez /
  • Trainer: Bob Baffert /
Morning Line Odds

Kentucky Derby winner. You all know the story about his failed drugs test. Has to pass Pre-Race testing otherwise he will be scratched. If he runs, worthy favorite. Tough front-running horse.

Morning Line Odds

Second favorite behind stablemate Medina Spirit. Won the San Vicente and Rebel in impressive fashion before a third place finish at the Arkansas Derby. Front-runner. If he gets out to the lead early then he'll be tough to beat. Big if though with Medina Spirit in the field.

Midnight Bourbon

Morning Line Odds

If you are looking to bet away from Bob Baffert, here's your best shot. Hit the board in all five of the Derby Prep Races he entered, winning the Grade III Lecomte. Ran 6th in the Derby. Contender.

Crowded Trade

  • Age: 3 /
  • Jockey: Javier Castellano /
  • Trainer: Chad Brown /

Hit the board twice in the NYRA Road to the Derby. Surprised he's as short as 10/1 on the Morning Line. Expect that to drift.

Rombauer

  • Age: 3 /
  • Jockey: Flavien Prat /
  • Trainer: Michael McCarthy /

My favorite horse of the perceived outsiders. Thought his third place behind Essential Quality and Highly Motivated in the Grade II Blue Grass was a good run. Outsider but not a no hoper.

Keepmeinmind

  • Age: 3 /
  • Jockey: David Cohen /
  • Trainer: Robertino Diodoro /

Came home 7th in the Kentucky Derby. Looked like an excellent two-year-old but hasn't hit the board in three starts as a three-year-old. Tough to back even in deep exotics.

Unbridled Honor

  • Age: 3 /
  • Jockey: Luis Saez /
  • Trainer: Todd Pletcher /

Broke his Maiden back in February at Tampa Bay Downs. 4th in the Tampa Bay Derby and second behind King Fury at the Lexington. Would be a big step up to contend in the Preakness.

Risk Taking

  • Age: 3 /
  • Jockey: Jose Ortiz /
  • Trainer: Chad Brown /

Won the Grade III Withers back in February but followed that up with a 7th place finish in that shocking Wood Memorial. Deep exotics possibilities.

France Go De Ina

  • Age: 3 /
  • Jockey: Joel Rosario /
  • Trainer: Hideyuki Mori /

Flown in from Japan following a very disappointing 6th place in the UAE Derby. Was highly thought of going into that race. Would need to up his game seriously to be near the front in the closing stages.

Ram

  • Age: 3 /
  • Jockey: Ricardo Santana Jr. /
  • Trainer: D. Wayne Lukas /

Broke his Maiden at the 9th time of asking. Trainer D. Wayne Lukas looking for his 8th Preakness win. Real real long shot here.
