Kentucky Derby 138

Post 9: Trinniberg
Trainer: Bisnath Parboo
Jockey: Willie Martinez
Current Odds 50-1, Record 7: 3-2-0, Style: Pace.

Analysis: The best sprinter/miler of his year, this horse is pure speed. I wish the owners had stayed with their original plan of gradually increasing distance for the Preakness, but an intense case of Derby Fever got the best of them. He will likely set off blazing fractions, and will be burnt out by the time they find the far turn. His owner and trainer think he is fit enough to hold his speed the whole way, and maybe they know something the rest of the world doesn’t. However, no Derby winner has ever prepped only in races less than 1 mile.
