Sorry if this has been done, but I couldn't see a thread about it. Throwing out stats, who is your pick for the roses from a purely sentimental standpoint?
For me it's Liaison. I loved both his sire and grandsire and Charlie's death hit me hard. I would love to see him get a Derby winner and Liaison reminds me of him. Plus, Bob Baffert is my favourite trainer and I'd like to see him back in the winner's circle for the Derby.
