The Run For The Roses

Five minutes to post time at Churchill Downs, race fans! Here's where I'm putting my money:

1. Afleet Alex (9:2 odds)
2. Bellamy Road
3. High Fly

I'm not a big fan of Bellamy Road. The racing world was looking for a sexy favorite and found the speedy Bellamy Road in the past three weeks. He looks like a classic flavor of the month-type horse. Nevertheless, I'm nervous about the George Steinbrenner-owned horse. Also, the Yankees suck!

(UPDATE: You can't account for an anomaly like the 50-1 ultra longshot Giacomo winning the Derby. At least, Afleet Alex finished third. It just goes to show, when handicapping the ponies, you got to listen to yourself think. Case in point, I internalized everything I heard about Bellamy Road andfailed to listen to my own analysis. Bellamy Road had no heart and basically withdrew from the four-horse pack down the stretch. Let's hope the Yankees do the same.)
