2017 Kentucky Derby Predictions: Lookin at Lee

Lookin at Lee was coming in at 16-1 odds after opening at 20-1 odds Wednesday morning, a big of a long shot to win the 2017 Kentucky Derby.  His post position start doesn’t exactly instill optimism in expert handicappers.

John Clay and Ben Roberts of the Lexington Herald Leader notes:

No Derby contender has finished in the money from the inside-most post since 1988. If Lee can lay back at the start and avoid trouble — a big if — he has the late kick to be running at the end.

Robert Criscola of Metro US likes Lookin at Lee’s chances but also expressed concerns over his starting position:

Lookin At Lee is the kind of runner that always seems to fare well in the Kentucky Derby. He usually sits far back early on before making a wide, late bid down the stretch. Lookin At Lee has lost his last six races but has made up significant ground each time, suggesting he’ll relish every bit of the 10 furlongs he gets at Churchill Downs this Saturday. Lookin At Lee raced at Churchill twice at age two and while he failed to win both those races, he did run second in the Iroquois Stakes. A big knock against him is the rail draw, as no horse has won from this post position since 1986 (Ferdinand). Locally-based rider Corey Lanerie will have the call for trainer Steve Asmussen.
