NBC Analyst Laffit Pincay joined Bob & Steve to talk about the Kentucky Derby tomorrow. This is the 139th running of the Kentucky Derby and the oddsmakers have made Orb the 7-2 favorite.
Steve started off by asking about his thoughts on the race. Laffit said he is going to change everything, but in his opinion Verrazano is the most talented and Orb is the horse coming on the most at the end.
Steve asked is there any horse that will be helped by the poor track conditions. Laffit said that Palace Malice is a horse to look at because of his pedigree.
Bob asked if Verrazano’s jockey John Velazquez will be ready after missing the last month with a fall. Laffit said there might be some rust, but Velazquez wouldn’t ride such a talented horse if he was still hurt.
