2017 Kentucky Derby Free Picks


2017 Kentucky Derby Free Picks -Saturday, May 6, 2017 - Race 12 at Churchill Downs - 6:46pm Eastern est. post

Robbie Gregorka
15 #15 McCraken (5/1) - Loves running at Churchill, the home track advantage will make the difference.
7 #7 Girvin (15/1) - Working out very well lately, could close fast late.
11 #11 Battle of Midway (30/1) - Had a bad trip in Santa Anita Derby, under the radar and has great value.
Bob Gregorka
8 #8 Hence (15-1) - Talented Colt maturing in top form at the right time.
17 #17 Irish War Cry (6-1) - Should be the favorite off last race. Traffic problems or not the key.
9 #9 Irap (20-1) - Steady improvement says he will be right there.
Dave Bond
17 #17 Irish War Cry (6-1) - has looked terriffic in training and holds wins over some of the top contenders already.
5 #5 Always Dreaming (5-1) - was absolutely sensational last time out. Todd Pletcher may have this colt peaking at the right time.
14 #14 Classic Empire (4-1) - the favorite has already succeeded on the biggest stage and oozes class.
