Golden Cents overcomes a weakened Verrazano mid stretch and stays strong for the win, Revolutionary flies up the rail (Go Calvin) and gets place. the tri & superfecta are filled out by late running Mylute and Normandy Invasion

I think a lot a people are overlooking Verazzano he was toying with the other horses.With Johnny V on him and he breaks well watch out you will see a dominating performance but we all know talent does not always wins the derby.My other favorites is Normandy Invasion (nice run at the "Wood" also his work outs at Churchill are impressive.My other favs Revolutionary/Goldencents.Good luck to all.

I can only pick two favorites. I just have a very strong feeling about these two horses. I like them both very much!

Palace Malice to win.
Normandy Invasion to win and/or to show.

I'm worried that Verrazano will turn out to be all hype when matched up against this field. He has a front runner style that I never like in the Derby and running from the 14 hole means he has to exert alot of early energy to settle into the first turn. I also cannot predict Goldencents because SA times always throw me off when compared to times back east (excluding Florida). I don't support Orb as the favorite and in fact may leave him out of my exactas as his two GP 1 1/8M times just don't point to a favorite.

With that said, I'm looking for a shocker from off the pace to nose out Verrazano or Goldencents. Focusing on Revolutionary, Overanalyze and Normandy's Invasion. So for those playing along at home...my exact looks like 3,5,9 with 8,14 and I might even spend a little more money and go with 3,5,9 with the 3,5,8,9,14. Off to the window! Good luck everyone.

It will be Overanalyze to win. My bet is $140 to win,$60 to place. Was going to do some exactas and tris but I'll make plenty if he wins and a little if he's second.

9-5-8-16

For the dude that talked about speed being a problem, you should know that there is no cheap speed in this year because of the changes. No sprinters in here for the first time. People smarter than me should bet a ton on Goldencents if they like speed.

I have it down to 4 horses in a wide open race. Rain? And it is coming. Then all bets are off. If not, Verrazano, Golden Cents , Orb and Normandy Invasion and not necessarily in that order . Weather just may predict the outcome. If there is no rain and Golden Cents doesn't throw his Jockey, I'll eat my shoe if the horse is not in the top three.
