Take Charge Indy,
Any of ^them^ could win this thing -- as Newt is correct, this is the best looking 3-year-old field in what? 2-3 decades Newt? Just an awesome field in terms of depth of top-shelf talent. You've got anywhere between 3-5 Derby favorites in most years all sammwiched into one Kentucky Derby. This race could very well be epic. IF you ever could witness this --this is the year that you might actually see a neck-n-neck-n-neck trifecta of a finish.
For a reach pick, I give you: I'll Have Another. Smart looking horse, who is really hurt by running the second widest distance in the outside lane less one.
