re: KY Derby

I have future bets on Wayne's horse @ 20:1 due to the impressive Lexington run. The Lewis's & Wayne stated this is one of the best horses they have ever had -- thankfully the surgery went well. The Lexington Beyer number, however, wasn't too high. I think the horse has room for improvement.

I also bet Ten Most Wanted @ 17.5:1 after the Illinois Derby, which I focused upon last year with War Emblem. War Emblem won the Illinois Derby and entered the '02 Derby with the highest Beyer. I believe Ten Most Wanted has the highest Beyer coming into this year's KY Derby -- although Crist says the race may have been a fluke and the Beyer's not "reliable".

Having said that -- Empire Maker looks terrific. The local books have him @ 1.4:1.

I wish Sky Mesa was in the race.

There is a new DRF book out about interpretting Beyer numbers. The author is a henchman of Andy's and assists in calculating Beyer numbers. I enjoy the book - but then again I enjoy anything about Beyer numbers.
