“Hansen,” the 2-year-old thoroughbred champion, faces lots of headwind in the Kentucky Derby on Saturday: the 1 1/4 mile distance, more seasoned competition and his inconsistent behavior. (Plus, the favorite “Bodemeister” is named after award-winning West Coast Trainer Bob Baffert’s son).
But I’m going to stick with “Hansen” at long odds. Besides, I figure he might grow wings in the stretch: with his white color, he looks like the mythical Pegasus. If I had to make a more serious-faced bet, I’d go with “Gemologist.” Good luck to all!
