By

From the article: 2012 Kentucky Derby Entries
The Kentucky Derby is a tough race to handicap with as many as 20 horses entered and many more considered contenders in the months prior to the race as the preps are run. Which horse do you think will win the roses this year and why?

"Overanalyze"

Having a superstition of the number nine the horses name couldn't have been more fitting....gotta love it! GO GO GO Overanalyze!

longshoot derby off track

Revolutionary, Palice Malice, Normandary Invasion, Java's War. You can box it for super & trifecta. No favorites will hit the broad.

Shanghai Bobby had enough points, Jaime

He has 34 points and would have made the field. Pletcher took him out of consideration back on April 1 so he can be rested for a fall campaign. http://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/horseracing/2013/04/01/shanghai-bobby-rested-out-of-kentucky-derby/2043815/

Best 3 year not in the TC?

He proved as a two year old he was tops and he's not in the Triple Crown. Shanghai Bobby was left out and he may have been this years Smarty Jones. It's a shame & maybe we don't understand what it takes to qualify, but clearly the best 3 year old (just look at his winnings), is not going to be there. I don't thing there's a contender in the field to win the TC, but if it finally happens it will be tainted because Shanghai Bobby did not run. Just wait till the fall racing & the breeders cup & watch who is the best.
