Jockey Craig Perret stood several yards from El Bakan's barn on a sunny, deceptively chilly morning at Churchill Downs. "I've never been on him, won't be on him until Saturday, but that's no problem," Perret said. "I've looked at all of his races on tape. After 10 minutes on him in the post parade, I'll be able to adapt. You can figure out horses pretty quick." In eight races, El Bakan has seven victories and a second.

Ever since I heard about this horse Rockamundo that ran and won with odds of 108-1, I have wanted to bet on him. Virtually every horse I have bet on in my life should have gone off at 108-1, and several of them have yet to finish. For today's 119th running of the Kentucky Derby, however, I cannot bring myself to put $2 on the snoot of Rockamundo.
