Florida Derby – Road to the Kentucky Derby 2013


Florida Derby – Road to the Kentucky Derby 2013

It could be far too early in 2013 to start predicting any kind of Kentucky Derby winner this year, but many have already started to think about their picks.

For two colts the Florida Derby is a big prep race for the roses this year. Baffert’s Flashback and the Todd Pletcher-conditioned Verrazano both have the same kind of stats, but it’s Verrazano who will bemaking his Stakes debut between these two.

Many believe Verrazano will win tomorrows race by open lengths but some of the other horses need respect too. Verrazano is quite obviously pointed toward the Kentucky Derby and the Florida Derby imminent Pletcher knows he has a good horse.

So, going on the tips and past performances, we are tipping Verrazano for a win in the Florida Derby at Tampa Bay Downs.
