after the last major Kentucky Derby prep (The Lexington),
we get right to work applying the historical patterns and
theories discussed in The Triple Crown Handicapper to the
actual horses slated to run in the Kentucky Derby. On the
Monday before the Derby, we mail out The Derby Zone, an easy-to-read
update which will save you hours of work and provided added
comfort as you handicap the Derby.
Zone classifies each horse as a contender, "gray zone"
horse, or pretender based on the historical patterns contained
in this book. This is the same format we have successfully
used in The Crushing Zone, our Breeders’ Cup analysis.
For each race, we will show you which Derby starters:
- Have the right running style.
- Took the right prep path.
- Fit the "winners" profile of past Derby winners.
- Tomlinson mud numbers for each entrant.
- Have met the Beyer par at age 2 and 3.
- Fit the Derby Dosage and sire profiles.
- Are smitten with the key Derby jinxes.
- Dosage profiles for each entrant.
include a Derby handicapping worksheet and explain our thoughts
on the major contenders.
