2018 Kentucky Derby Free Picks


2018 Kentucky Derby Free Picks -Saturday, May 5, 2018 - Race 12 at Churchill Downs - 6:50pm Eastern est. post

Robbie Gregorka
14 #14 Mendelssohn (5/1) - The foreign import is a class above the field, the American horses just don't know it yet.
6 #6 Good Magic (12/1) - Working out well of late, and has tons of speed to compete.
10 #10 My Boy Jack (30/1) - Was impressive on a muddy surface, may excel again in the rain.
4 #4 Flameaway (30/1) - Another former winner in the slop, with the forecast calling for rain on Derby Day, he is worth considering.
Bob Gregorka
18 #18 Vino Rosso (12/1) - Best work of the day 4/27. Troubled Trip in Wood but still won by 3. No horse comes up to this better prepared . Like Jock/Trainer Combo.
9 #9 Hofburg (20/1) - Gets better every race. Went 4 wide to run 2nd to Audible in Fla Derby.
5 #5 Audible (8/1) - Has done all asked of him in 4 straight wins by a total of 20 lengths.
4 #4 Flameaway (30/1) - Super 4/28 work, consistent early speed, Trouble Free Trip gets him in the tri/sup mix.
16 #16 Magnum Moon (6/1) - 4 for 4 lifetime all easy wins. If Jock keeps him out of trouble, hard to ignore - so don't ignore in tris/sups.
IF RAIN USE 7,8,10,12 IN 10 CENT SUPS.
IF SLOPPY MOVE #4 FLAMEAWAY TO THE TOP PICK.
