Derby preps this weekend

Now that it's the second weekend in March with March madness abound, and some major Derby preps this weekend it's time to review them.

The Rebel Stakes at Oaklawn
Grade 2
1 1/16 miles

1.Old Fashioned 122 .lbs 7/5
2.Hamazing Destiny 115 .lbs 5/1
3.Poltergeist 117 .lbs 15/1
4.Pointing Home 115 .lbs 15/1
5.Wise Kid 117 .lbs 9/2
6.His Greatness 117 .lbs 12/1
7.Captain Cherokee 117 .lbs 8/1
8.Silver City 117.lbs 4/1
9.Win Willy 117 .lbs 20/1

Well as you know I'm going to pick Old fashioned to win, and easily. I'll pick Silver City to place and I'll throw in Wise Kid to show. Short and sweet.

The San Felipe at Santa Anita
Grade 2
1 1/16 miles

1.He's Really Big 115 .lbs 30/1
2.Pioneerofthenile 122 .lbs 2/5
3.Feisty Suances 115 .lbs 10/1
4.Shafted 115 .lbs 8/1
5.Jeranimo 115 .lbs 20/1
6.Kelly Leak 115 .lbs 6/1
7.New Bay 115 .lbs 8/1

Most people are expecting Pioneer to scorch this field. I think he will win but, I wish people would stop thinking he was some sort of super horse. Mostly it's because of people saying that I want revenge's win in the Gotham flattered him. Only HIS wins flatter him. Not a horse he beat on SYTHETICS on a TOTALLY DIFFERENT TRACK, winning impressively when switched to dirt. Okay? Anyways, New bay, Kelly Leak, Feisty Suances and He's really big might be scratching in favor of another start. I'm going to go with Pioneerofthenile to win, Shafted to place and New bay(if he doesn't scratch) to show.

6.Giant Oak 4/1
7.Uno Mas 12/1
