GII Indiana Derby 2011- Free PP’s, PP#’s, Picks, M/L Odds

In a “Where’s Waldo” moment this Saturday – Shackleford, Wilburn, Caleb’s Posse and Decisive Moment will all surface in the same GII $500,000, going 1 1/16 mile, for 3yo’s only, Indiana Derby at Hoosier Park (seen here) this Saturday, if you can stand another big graded stakes to have to deal with!

Free Past Performances!

So a handful of Probables are gathering here for this almost forgotten, yet still important 3yo dust-up!

Each horse’s name is linked to a good profile of that horse!

By Post Positions, Horse, Jockey, Trainer, M/L Odds,

1. Friends Place M A Pedroza 117 D L Romans – 9/5

1a. Shackleford J L Castanon 124 D L Romans – 9/5

2. Decisive Moment D Centeno 124 J D Arias – 15/1

3. Little Drama  J Sanchez 117 D Fawkes – 12/1

4. Populist Politics G Melancon 117 T  M Amoss – 6/1 early scr by trainer

5. Windswept C J Lanerie 117 S Margolis – 10/1

6. Caleb’s Posse R Albarado  124 D K Von Hemel – 2/1

7.  Wilburn  J R Leparoux 124 S M Asmussen – 4/1

Post time is 6:15 pm

Picks are 1,6,7,4 with a 2,3 super!

We don’t see how this helps the likes Caleb’s Posse (GI King’s Bishop winner and Uncle Mo killer) or even Shackleford (GI Preakness winner) get into anything Breeders’ Cup related this year.

Maybe, they’re all trying to take the “Lookin At Lucky” route of 2010! Still it looks like a “surrender race” to us for these 3 in 2011!

Hope we’re wrong!
