2017 Kentucky Derby Final Predictions And Picks
I’ve changed my mind a couple of times over the last couple of weeks, but I’m settling on Girvin as my pick to win the 2017 Kentucky Derby. Why this thoroughbred is the eighth-best favorite to win the 2017 Kentucky Derby is beyond me, but I’m fully on board with a wager on Girvin at +1500.
This thoroughbred has recorded a trio of victories and one second place finish in four starts. If you’re looking for a horse that I offering a ton of value outside the top three, then look no further than Girvin!
Classic Empire +600
I really like No. 2 co-favorite Classic Empire for the show finish after he finished the 2016 season as the best juvenile in the country. Five wins and one third place finish in ix starts tell me a second place finish is a virtual lock!
Always Dreaming +500
Always Dreaming has recorded three straight first place finishes while recording one second place finish and one third place finish in five starts. I’m thinking a third place finish in the Kentucky Derby I as close to a lock as it gets!
McCraken has recorded one first place finish and one third place finish in five starts. At +700, I like McCraken as my longshot pick to finish fourth in the 2-17 Kentucky Derby.
