I know Curlin is an early favorite, but I still have to go with him. He's undefeated and a Louisiana Jockey is riding him. I used to watch Robby Albarado at Evangeline Downs. My favorite Louisiana Jockey (Kent Desormeaux) is riding somewhat of a longshot (Stormello) but I will be pulling for him also. I guess we will see just how good Curlin is against a class field. I love these big races. I don't follow horse racing too much anymore but when I watch the races on TV I get fired up!
