Can He Win The 2012 Kentucky Derby?:
In order for My Adonis to win the Derby, he first needs to actually get into the field. This year, for the first time, Churchill Downs has added "also eligible" or "alternate entries" to the Kentucky Derby field. In order for My Adonis to make the Derby field on Saturday, one of the other 20 horses must scratch before Friday morning when advance wagering on the Derby will open.
As for the chances of My Adonis if he gets into the field; he's got some work to do. He was a decent 2nd to Hansen in the Gotham, and his 3rd in the Holy Bull wasn't that bad. But he was simply awful in the Wood and you hate to see a Derby contender go into the biggest race of the year off of a really poor performance.
