Joe Sullivan’s Kentucky Derby picks

Advertisement

1. Goldencents: Impressive win in the Santa Anita Derby; just needs to run the same race. Will be up close early but hopefully not going too fast too soon.

2. Orb: He’ll be running late. Wish trainer Shug McGaughey could get his first Derby win, but he’ll come up short.

3. Mylute: Another late runner who has some cachet with the sabermetricians of horse racing. (Lines of Battle could also land here.)
