We’ll start in Louisiana at the Fairgrounds with the Grade II Louisiana Derby!
Pants on Fire runs like his pants were on fire here but watch “Nehro” come within inches of winning here up the rail! Both were great performances this year!
The Big Apple and Uncle Mo is our next top performance of this 3yo season!
Watch as old “Mo” gets passed first, by Arthur’s Tale and then Toby’s Corner weaving his way thru traffic to score the big upset win! It was tops in the “Big Apple” this year!
Sunny California and the Santa Anita Derby is on our hit parade next!
Watch as “Midnight Interlude” has to check in mid-stretch and then goes on to win by a head over a very game “Comma to the Top”! They ran the best time of 1:48.34 for all the 1 1/8 mile derby preps!
The Florida Derby makes it to our list this year too! See why below!
Shackleford who is on the “earnings-bubble” right now should make the derby field off this great performance but Dialed In’s was even better!
The Arkansas Derby’s finish was “one for the ages”. See this great ending below!
Archarcharch’s stretch run to victory is “Kentucky Derby” worthy to be sure but Nehro’s near-victory here should scare the pants off all the other Derby contenders this year!
So those were our top 5 picks as the best of all the “Derby Prep” races for 2011. Hope you saw your favorites in there as we think you just saw the 2011 Kentucky Derby winner amongst all of these replays! It’s almost time to “loaded them up and watch’em run”!
