Risk Taking value an opportunity
Risk Taking can e book his ticket to the Kentucky Derby by profitable this historic race.
This excessive class performer gained the Withers over this course again in February. He made relentless progress within the straight, and powered house for an emphatic victory.
He doesn’t have a fast flip of foot, however is a resolute galloper and will likely be suited by the anticipated quick tempo. Expect him to be performed late by Irad Ortiz, who is a superb decide of tempo. This is a aggressive race so BSP is really helpful.
Essential Quality a should
I can not look past Essential Quality on this mouthwatering race.
This sensible performer was most spectacular when beating Spielberg within the Grade 3 Southwest at Oaklawn Park in February. He sat off the velocity, and discovered one other gear when popped the query within the straight to win going away.
He is unbeaten in 4 begins, and has the hallmark of a critical Kentucky Derby contender. Trainer Brad Cox has completed an impressive job with him and ought to take this in his stride. However, that is no stroll within the park and will face stiff opposition from Highly Motivated and Untreated. BSP is really helpful.
