Key Classic Sire Lines

The following story I wrote was recently published in the May/June issue of the Horseplayer Magazine.

Horseracing fans have a variety of methods they use to pick the Kentucky Derby (G1) winner. Some like to use silk colors or quirky names while others rely on the trainer or jockey as their method of selection. Still others study past performances and memorize the Dosage Index of each horse. But perhaps the most important way of picking the Derby (G1) winner is knowing the horse’s pedigree.

    Very talented.

  2. Thank you Barry for the compliment.

  3. Have you finalized your Derby selection. I have selected Mission Implazible

  4. Kentucky Oaks, my play is "It Tea Time" from the rail.
