Update 3:58

Mike Smith takes one on Derby Day, nailing the American Turf (G2) aboard longshot Arklow (15-1) over favorite Good Samaritan (5/2).  Mike Smith was in the winners circle yesterday, as we won the Kentucky Oaks aboard another longshot in Abel Tasman (9-1).

Update 2:00

Favorite Roca Rojo (6/5) takes the Churchill Distaff in a thrilling nose finish over Believe in Bertie.  This is the third straight race now where the top three selections (according to odds) all made the board for the money.  Something tells me race 8 is going to shake things up.  

The sun remains out and the weather is looking a bit more promising.  The turf remains good, and the track remains sloppy; although one more race on that dirt with the weather staying as is could change the dirt to fair conditions.

 

Update 1:35

Irish War Cry is a name on a ton of people's radar at this point, as the New York colt is second-best in odds at 9/2.  Always Dreaming still the favorite at 4-1.  

For the 7th race, the 2 horse, Miss Temple City, who was easily the top girl in this race has been scratched.  If you wanted to follow my disturbingly cold handicapping advice for this race, I would say the 1 horse, simply named Linda is the best choice now.  A Scat Daddy daughter, trained by Ian Wilkes and ridden by Brian Hernandez.  Has great connections, great mount, superb pedigree.  The horse also came in first and second in her only two wet turf runs.

Update 1:20

Paulasilverlining (5/2), daughter of Ghostzapper, takes the 6th: The 31st running of The Humana Distaff (G1).  Our first grade-1 race of the day, Paulasilverlining, took down favorite Finest City, and G1 Acorn (Belmont) winner, Carina Mia.  Easily the most exciting race of the day, as all three fillies that finished in the money were on their game.

.50 cent trifecta for 2-5-7 paid just $9.65, while the $1 exacta cashed a little over nine bucks.  

Update 12:45

Sir Dudley Digges (9/2) wins the American Pharoah (race 5).  Bred in Ontario, Digges, won the 2016 Queen's Plate at Woodbine, which is a leg of the Canadian Triple Crown.  Trained by Michael Maker, mounted by Julien Lebaroux, the connections of this underrated champ take down the optional claiming event for three year old's without three career wins.  The race was the first one-mile turf event of the day.  

During the loading process, we got to see something that hasn't showed its face yet this weekend: the sun.  It poked through just a bit, as the ran is halted, though the track is still pretty sloppy at this point.

Update 12:30

As of now the most significant shift in odds comes from the favorite, Classic Empire, who opened as a 4-1 favorite, now dropped back to an 8-1, with Always Dreaming (5-1) the current front-runner.  Patch, who opened at 30-1 has now dropped to 15-1, while J Boys Echo has gone from 20-1 to 45-1.

Track ciondition is still sloppy as the horses are getting ready to enter the gate for the American Pharoah (Race 5).

Remember, the Kentucky Derby is the 12th race on today's card at Churchill Downs.

Josh Bell had not hit a walk-off home run since he was a member of the Altoona Curve in 2015. He changed that Friday with a soaring shot for the left field loonies.
