Well, I'm already on record in the Morning Line blog. Before I wager today, I will see how the surface is playing vis a vis the track condition (rain is expected) and decide how to play Derby 139.

Meanwhile, I'll go on record taking Normandy Invasion to win at no lower than 6-1 and keying him in exotics with Revolutionary, Verrazano, Orb, Goldencents and Itsmyluckyday.

Number of Selections: 1307

Number of Win-Place-Show Finishers: 399-249-201

Amount Wagered: $2,614 [to win only]

Total Dollar Return on Investment: $2,741.80

Profit to Date: $127.80
