Well, there you have it. Not sure how Brian Hernandez can do anything but win now. All I know is if a man who can put me in the hospital with one single punch, I'm going to do what he says. Just a rule in life I will always live by. So if Tyson Fury tells me I can't lose, I'm going to win the whole damn thing. I don't care if I'm 20-1. This man is telling me to win, I'm going to listen:
I actually do think King Fury is live as a longshot (more on that in the write up tomorrow). He has six starts, winning three times. He's won twice at Churchill Downs in his career at a mile and a sixteenth and is coming off a mile and sixteenth win at Keeneland a month ago. All pretty good to me! He's coming from post 16 and could set the pace. If he gets out in front he's at his best. It'll be interesting to see what Brian Hernandez decides to do with him, especially with the speed gone a bit in the race.
This is one of my favorite things about the Derby though. We have people tied to horses from all walks off life - Tyson Fury, Jim Boeheim, a group of former frat bros and football players from Brown. All have great stories and their horses are all easy to cheer for. Not only that but it could make for a great party afterward.
