OK City and RP are the venue as the Derby Road goes on forever and the Oaks never end… we have a field of eight set to go a mile and an eighth on the main oval in the OK Derby and I think Sirius Black is the one to beat in this one.  I liked him when he was on the TC Trail, Winning the Gun Runner and was second in both the Holy Bull (GIII) and FL Derby (GIII).  He beat Empire State-Breds last out and looks ready for another big run today.  I’ll take Battle Plan in the second spot as he beat the top selection when third in the BEL (GI), has won half of his six starts including the Wood Mem (GII) and the Day Mile (GII) and tired to be third last out in the Jones (GIII) at PRX.  The Big Barn always has them ready.
