CHURCHILL DOWNS 

RACE 12

THE 142 RUNNING OF THE KENTUCKY DERBY

No. 11 Exaggerator gets a very good draw, he has really turned his game around since his trainer Keith Desormeaux changed his running style. We look for him to make the quick turn of foot at the top of the lane and get the jump on them all turning for home, he is our play at 8/1. We must use the undefeated No. 13 Nyquist who has beaten Exaggerator the three times the have met but those were before his style change. No. 17 Mor Spirit just finished second to Exaggerator in the Santa Anita Derby, he has never been worst then second in his 7 lifetime starts and will try to be the first horse ever to win from post 17. We will use along with the speedy No. 20 Danzing Candy who will try and pull off a Big Brown wire-to-wire win from post 20. 11**-13-17-20

Key exacta and tri 11 with 13-17-20 and 13-17-20 with 11
