Way to Pick ‘Em, Joe Drape!

“Animal Kingdom will stalk the lead pack and have the first jump at the leaders when they hit the stretch and then unleash a powerful closing kick.”

Joe Drape in Saturday morning’s NY Times, picking 20-1 longshot Animal Kingdom to win the Kentucky Derby.

Whaddya know?  Animal Kingdom stalked the lead pack, was sixth coming out of the final turn, and then unleashed a powerful closing kick to win the Kentucky Derby by 2.5 lengths.  That’s some pretty good horse-picking.

Ironically, Drape wrote just last Monday about how he hadn’t picked a Derby winner in 10 years.
