Reviewing the Kentucky Derby Media Poll Part 2

Yesterday the Kentucky Derby Media poll part two was released & it’s quite a head scratcher to say the least.

It’s hard to believe that Promises Fufilled & Strike Power both handily beat Good Magic yet they are both ranked behind Magic. In fact Strike Power who proved he could get the distance & is 3/3 lifetime is ranked 17th.

Justify who has one maiden victory is at number 10. Bolt D’Oro has 3 more first place votes than McKinzie yet is ranked 2nd. It’s very hard to take this poll seriously.

In my opinion Audible should be number 1 followed by Bolt D’Oro then Solomini. Good Magic should be no better than 7th.
