Wicked Pick

The Boston Globe backs Wicked Strong in the Kentucky Derby, win or lose:

… even if the colt fails to place in one race, he’s keeping the spirit of charity and concern for the Marathon bombing victims alive.

Wicked Strong is also Andrew Beyer’s #1 pick.

Pablo Del Monte, who drew in on Friday after Hoppertunity scratched, was declared out this morning. He’ll point to the Preakness instead. Gate #1 will remain open, the stewards ruled, and horses #1-10 will move over one spot.
