They call the Kentucky Derby “the most exciting two minutes in sports.” Whoever first said this was spot-on.
Below is a video for last year’s Kentucky Derby through the eyes of West Point Thoroughbreds CEO Terry Finley who had a minority ownership in last year’s Kentucky Derby winner Always Dreaming.
I interviewed Terry Finley after the last year’s Florida Derby for a Derby profile on Always Dreaming for US Racing which can be accessed here: https://www.usracing.com/news/kentucky-derby-road-to-the-roses/2017-kentucky-derby-contender-profile-always-dreaming
The above profile was one of the top viewed articles on US Racing last year during Derby month.
I could say “little did I know at that time that Always Dreaming would go on to win the Kentucky Derby.” But I volunteered to write that US Racing Derby profile after that Florida Derby performance because I thought he would win. I always hedge just in case you get an unpredictable performance.
The Good News, as my readers can attest, I have been real high of late on a Derby sleeper in “My Boy Jack.” Remember, I liked Lookin’ At Lee as a Derby sleeper last year in my pre-Derby article titled: “Is there a Mine That Bird in the 2017 Kentucky Derby field?” https://www.usracing.com/news/kentucky-derby-road-to-the-roses/mine-bird-2017-kentucky-derby-field
Lookin’ At Lee finished 2nd in last year’s Kentucky Derby at 33-1 odds.
Well, guess who bought minority ownership in My Boy Jack over last weekend? Terry Finley and I will be interviewing him tomorrow for my Derby profile on My Boy Jack.
Early Derby odds for My Boy Jack have ranged from 30-1 to 18-1.

You will know that this year’s Kentucky Derby should be one of the most exciting!
