That, of course, is the idea. My feeling is that the Blue Grass is a $750,000 race and that sooner of later, the winner will repeat in the Derby. I was at the Blue Grass. Stately Victor was the most unlikely winner, but he woke up and ran a very powerful race. If he runs a similar race on Saturday, he's going to be tough to beat; and he'll probably be 25-1 or more because the Blue Grass has been so downgraded in bettors' minds since the switch to Poly at Keeneland.
Well... he ran the RIGHT kind of race, coming from behind.
Street Sense won the Derby after a strong BlueGrass race.. but, he did have a better history coming in.
