Kentucky Derby Preview and Predictions – Who to Bet

Talking Track: Stay Thirsty Wins Travers – Caleb’s Posse Wins King’s Bishop

Two questions were being asked coming into Saturday at Saratoga.  How would Uncle Mo come back from injury, and who would step up to take control of the three-year-old division?  Well, both were answered in a loud way.  Uncle Mo would come back with a huge, albeit second best effort, and Stay Thirsty staked his claim as the best of his class.
