Email

1. Union Rags
Consistently fast and fits the classic Derby profile

2. Hansen
Undefeated; little between the top two at this point

3. Creative Cause
Only a length behind the top two in Breeders’ Cup

4. Gemologist
Three for three, and a two-time winner at Churchill

 

5. Ever So Lucky
Game second in Ky. Jockey Club in only second start

6. Discreet Dancer
Romped in first two starts at GP, earning big Beyers

7. Liaison
CashCall was his second stakes win around two turns

8. Dullahan
Was going well late when fourth in the BC Juvenile

9. Out of Bounds
Really raised his game winning Sham in route debut

10. Rousing Sermon
Narrowly missed twice to Liaison in Hollywood stakes
