No Mo Means Upset Special

Twice the Appeal

When news broke this morning that Uncle Mo was scratched from tomorrow’s Kentucky Derby, memories of Mine That Bird immediately came to mind. Remember, that horse was a ridiculous 50-1 longshot when Calvin Borel rode him to glory two years ago at Churchill Downs. This time, the field for the 2011 Kentucky Derby features 19 horses, and is filled with plenty of upset specials. Borel will be riding Twice the Appeal, the horse that won the SunlandDerby. Could it be deja vu all over again? Although most horse racing experts consider Twice the Appeal a huge underdog, Borel has worked plenty of magic at the Kentucky Derby. He’s is trying to becoming the first ever jockey to win three straight Derbys at Churchill, and saved some of his best performances for horse racing’s biggest race. Even if Twice the Appeal does not win, most betters will be loading up on longshots. It is the smart play and could provide a huge monetary payout. Here is the complete field with posts positions, jockeys, and the opening line.
