    I was very, very impressed with Revolutionary, and I'm also pretty shocked they're going to make a go of getting in the Derby gate with one more prep. He's definitely talented and gutsy, but even aside from the asinine points situation, he's almost certainly going to need more seasoning to handle that massive field.

    I'd say he needs it significantly less than most, other than getting out of the gate cleanly and quickly.

    Well, he got a hell of a lot in that race, that's for sure!

    Loved how his ears were flicking after the finish - but not like - "oh, I'm having fun", but rather "eat my dust, fellas!" He seemed very, very competitive.

    Pool 1 of the 2013 Kentucky Derby Future Wager opens this FRI (Feb 8th) at Noon (Eastern) and closes SUN (Feb 10th) at 6pm EST.

    Just one gelding, Vyjack, is among the 23 named interests. There are no fillies. The futures are nonrefundable win and exacta wagers with $2 minimums, including $1 part-wheels or boxes. The takeout is 16 percent. As with any pari-mutuel wager, odds will change throughout the weekend, with final odds established at closing time.

    Real time odds will be available at kentuckyderby.com

    The opening odds and the named horses in alpha order "all others/field" is always #24. It appears that 12-1 is the lowest opening odds (for a named horses, the 'all others' is lowest) and shared by Shanghai Bobby & Violence, both trained by Todd Pletcher.

    Feb 7, 2013 - Coolmore (Tabor / Smith /Magnier) has bought a significant interest in Verrazano. They already took such a stake in another promising 2013 Triple Crown runner, Shanghai Bobby, last year.

    Assorted Derby trail decisions ...

    Verrazano is to make his stakes and two-turn debuts in the Tampa Bay Derby on March 9. Verrazano was the shortest-priced individual entry in Pool 1 of the Kentucky Derby Future Wager @ 11-1

    Delhomme will go to the Rebel Stakes at Oaklawn Park on March 16 for his first start of the year.

    Also shipping to Arkansas, but sooner, is Baffert trained Super Ninety Nine. He's is scheduled to ship to Arkansas for Monday’s (Feb 18) Grade 3, $300,000 Southwest.

    The Southwest was run over a mile last year, but this year it has been lengthened to 1 1/16 miles. The race is worth 10 points to the winner on the new system governing Kentucky Derby.

    Also expected in the Southwest: Always in a Tiz (with Robby Albarado up), Will Take Charge, Texas Bling, and Brown Almighty.

    Video replay: 32nd edition of the G3 Grade 3, $200,000 El Camino Real Derby on Saturday at Golden Gate Fields

    For the upset effort, Dice Flavor, took 10-Derby points in the strong victory. 3 3/4th lengths back it was Nina's Dragon at 13-1 second, three-quarters of a length in front of 25-1 Counting Days.

    Dice Flavor - a turf runner in his four prior races - the Feb 8th Wynn|Encore Vegas odds book had him omitted.

    Add to that Dice Flavor is not a current Triple Crown nominated horse. The second TC nomination closing is March 23, 2013 for $6,000.

    Hi guys. New around these parts, but I'll be watching via twinspires at work today. I'm very excited to see the overflow field for the Risen Star this weekend. We don't usually get to see the super nice ones til Louisiana Derby.

    Off the trail: Brown Almighty .. he'll be a turf guy henceforth

    Lackluster effort in the Southwest Stakes was Always in a Tizz - well it appears your man has a lung infection .. but [he'll] "still shoot for the Rebel". Good luck with that.

    Texas Bling is also aimed to return in the Rebel as his connections (and I concur) feel that the Southwest's off track condition didn't afford him a chance to show what he can do.

    Almost guaranteed to scratch from the Fountain of Youth: Sky Captain, who is out of his league with the lineup. Per his connections "Turfway’s Battaglia or the Grade 3 Gotham at Aqueduct" will be their next race. Up against Violence everyone else could be running for 2nd at best.

    Among the jocks in tomorrow's Risen Star will be Gary Stevens on Proud Strike for Steve Asmussen. This will be Gary's first return since 2005 when he won the race aboard Scipion.

    It will be a busy day for Gary as he's picked up several mounts on the Fair Grounds card - Midnight Ballet for Tom Proctor in the G3 Rachel Alexandra Stakes and Hyper for Chad Brown in the Grade 3 Fair Grounds Handicap.

    Tom Amoss, who will enter Mylute in the Risen Star, said he’s definitely a horse to watch. Shaun Bridgmohan has the mount in lieu of Rosie (who won aboard him last out) as she's on Pletcher's Palace Malice, previously ridden by Javier Castellano. Javiar is in FL to ride at the same time Violence

    Free past performances for these two Road to the Derby races:

    Risen Star @ Fair Grounds FEB 23: PPs

    Fountain of Youth @ Gulfstream FEB 23: PPs

    Both races will be aired on HRTV live; each race will award 50 Derby points to the winner, 20 for second, 10 for third and 5 for the fourth-place finisher.
