For bragging rights (or shame if their horse finishes last), here’s our top Derby picks:
LOOKIN AT LUCKY – Geno, Carly, Rob, Jessica, Brian A.
AMERICAN LION – Dylan
AWESOME ACT – Brian Zipse
ICE BOX – Steve
JACKSON BEND – The Turk
NOLBE’S PROMISE – Norm
At the suggestion of Ms Carly Kaiser we added a new wrinkle to our Derby Dozen poll this time: we’ll also predict last place, or the “Brancusi Award” as Norm (TKS) recommended. Now “picking the caboose” as Geno likes to say, is not something I usually do in public; but for the Derby I’ll make an exception. Heck, maybe this will catch on and next year Churchill will make it a real wager. But CDI doesn’t pay us to come up with ideas so let’s just keep this under our hat.
