Kentucky Derby Post Draw rundown
Now a brief rundown on the recent post drawings for the Kentucky Derby
1. WESTSIDE BERNIE 30-1 is by far the most likely of Kelly Breen’s to do well. He hasn’t accomplished much in the way of wins, but was second in the Grade 1 Wood, which is often a pivotal race. His dosage is 1.80, and his dam’s sid is represented twice by Secrtariat, so he could get better with age and distance.
2. MUSKET MAN 30-1 is trained by Derek Ryan. He won a Grade 2, but his dosage is 4.00, and Derby winners are almost always under that. Plus, the dosage still doesn’t take into the account the sprint bloodlines of Mr. Prospector. He also is represented by Dixieland Band, whose offspring break down often on rock hard tracks like Chruchill. But even if it rains, this one is a toss out because of his dosage and bloodlines.
