Kentucky Derby Draw: Gunnevera, Thunder Snow and Always Dreaming

Our selection for the Kentucky Derby, Gunnevera was not disadvantaged by the draw and remains our favorite. Thunder Snow, our long shot did very well in the draw and his chances of grabbing a place have improved dramatically.

Classic Empire did not draw well, he will need some luck in running to figure in the finish.

Always Dreaming drew well and he is a real chance, the Todd Pletcher trained horse has had an impressive history and is a real contender.

The weather may be a factor, rain is forecast for a few days running in to the race and on race day, for me that points to Gunnevera.

In the Fountain of Youth, Gunnevera and  Javier Castellano, finished like a freight train from last of 10 to win easily. In the Florida Derby, Gunnevera had the outside post and made a mess of it,  he never really had a chance to catch Always Dreaming.
