WirePlayers Derby Dozen Volume II – Just Getting Good

It’s t-minus 45 days till Derby 2015 and it’s far from over in trying to dope out the top contenders (and sleepers). In the three weeks since our last poll not much changed at the top, but American Pharoah and Carpe Diem made major moves up the ladder. Ocean Knight and Ocho Ocho Ocho disappointed mightily last time out and fell off our list completely so we called up Prospect Park and Far Right from the J.V.

Based on the voting and our panelists’ comments there’s a difference of opinion as to whether American Pharoah is the real deal or simply used his high cruising gear to dominate an overmatched field of lightweights (or, as Dylan put it, “a quality field of maiden breakers”). Well, with the marquee Grade 1 Derby preps around the corner we’ll have a better idea of who’s who and what’s what. Until next time, enjoy the Dozen (individual ballots):
