See what the Kentucky Derby Picks Experts have to say about Eight Belles chances on Saturday:

"Sure, fillies have won this but many great ones have tried and failed miserably since Winning Colors was the last to win the roses 20 years ago," stated Kentucky Derby Picks Expert Anthony Stabile of VegasInsider.com. "I know many feel this isn't the greatest crop in the world, but the same could be said about the fillies and I'll take a good colt over a good filly any day…..on the racetrack that is. She'll take plenty of action. Let her beat you."

“Alright, let's just cut to the chase. She's an interesting horse, good quality, but should seriously be running in the Oaks,” stated Gibbon Jockey Blog in their 134th Kentucky Derby Contender Preview of Eight Belles. “She's absolutely fast enough to handle the boys with an average Beyer of 96.5, but she won't get the 10 furlongs. The only factor she might be is as an early speedball that taxes other favorites, but I just can't see her competing. Next.”
