Privman: Verrazano headed to Tampa Bay Derby

The Daily Racing Form's Jay Privman reports Todd Pletcher's impressive allowance winner Verrazano will head to the Tampa Bay Derby on March 9. Privman added that Delhomme, off since his third in the Remsen, is likely for the Rebel Stakes at Oaklawn on March 16.

Verrazano could face the one-two finishers of the Sam F. Davis, Falling Sky and Dynamic Sky, in the Tampa Bay Derby.

Winslow Homer, the 6-year-old gray who has battled injuries throughout his career, is set to make another comeback attempt Friday at Gulfstream.

The son of Unbridled's Song, owned by Fox Hill Farm and now trained by Chad Brown, is entered in a one-mile allowance race on dirt that includes Pants on Fire and Duke of Mischief.

Winslow Homer has been off since he finished fifth in an allowance at Keeneland on October 29, 2011 for trainer Larry Jones.

Wide-open Pool 1 of Future Wager closes

When the first Kentucky Derby Future Wager of the season closed Sunday evening, it was obvious bettors have a wide view of the field to date.

“All others” closed as the top betting choice, moving from its morning line of 9-5 to 8-5.

The top selections based on variations from their morning lines were Verrazano, an allowance winner by More Than Ready trained by Todd Pletcher, and Bob Baffert’s Flashback, who is 2 for 2 after winning the Robert B. Lewis.

Who proved to be the best deals when the first Derby Future Wager closed on Sunday?

Dynamic Sky (30-1, close 54-1) – The Pasco champ and Sam F. Davis runner-up didn’t grab much attention here, but he’s shown talent and performed well during his 3-year-old campaign. If he wins or places well next out, he’ll be nowhere near this price on Derby day.

Analysis of the first group of horses available in the Kentucky Derby Future Wager opening Feb. 8:

1. Capo Bastone (30-1)

(Street Boss - Fight to Love by Fit to Fight)

4 (1-0-2)

Dosage: 4.33

Late closer will be debuting soon for his new trainer, Todd Pletcher. He reportedly bled in his third-place showing in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile, so there's a valid excuse, but with his current running style, he's completely dependant on a pace scenario.

ITM winners from Jan. 30 - Feb. 5:

1. Flashback (colt, Tapit - Rhumb Line by Mr. Greeley) - The short field makes his superb win in the Robert B. Lewis tough to gauge, but there's no doubt this is a top Kentucky Derby hopeful for Bob Baffert. His efficient, fluid stride and versatility - he's won from off the pace and on the lead - are attractive qualities.

It's February, and once again, trainer Todd Pletcher's list of Kentucky Derby contenders is long. Several are well-established, accomplished runners such as Shanghai Bobby and Violence, while others are newcomers or those running out of the spotlight - for now.

This is how In the Money currently views Pletcher's Derby aspirants in regards to the Run for the Roses:
