I Want Revenge

Derby 135 is beginning to resemble one of too many reality shows these days where one contestant is voted off each day. The latest defection - I Want Revenge - was technically no longer the morning line favorite since betting opened on Oaks day and the locals pounded Friesan Fire to 9-2 and locally owned General Quarters to 5-1(retired principal from Louisville - the best feel good story of this group).

I can recall the 1992 Derby morning scratch of A.P. Indy, but don't remember the top 2 picks having to drop out in the final week, but maybe someone can add to that.

I guess that's the benefit of being in town seeing local stories before the press conferences are picked up by sports outlets. That is coming shortly.
