Kentucky Derby Top 10 Lists

I know it’s early, we don’t really know the field and posts haven’t been drawn yet and a lot can and will still change. But it’s Derby season, and this is my 2nd favorite horse racing day of the year (Breeders’ Cup Saturday has no equal). So I got together with some digital friends over on the amazing Facebook group Down The Stretch and we put together our own set of ‘expert’ rankings. We will revisit these later on in a few but for now here we go.

Summary

  • Only four horses received a vote from every participant: Classic Empire, Irish War Cry, Always Dreaming and Gunnevera.*
  • Classic Empire and Always Dreaming made up the top pick on the most lists.*
  • Patch, Fast and Accurate, Battalion Runner and Untapped were the only horses not to receive a single vote.*

    *Summary only accounts for those participants that turned in top 10 lists

 

A big thanks to Down The Stretch Facebook group and all of those that participated.
