Most likely will attend. I have business people and friends I can stay with and have access to Churchill so I can decide in early may. Depends on how races shape up. Would go for the entire week, a mini vacation. Thanks for asking.

Wow. A very impressive list. How could Strong Mandate, be omitted from the list. He is quality horse, with the potential to bring home the Roses for Wayne Lukas. A recheck is in order.

Reponding to David Juffet. You correct, David. I attended my first Derby, when Sonny's Halo, brought the roses home. A very wet and rainy Derby Day, but still a memorable one. Every racing fan should try to see at least one Kentucky Derby. It is ohhh so special.

Strong Mandate has been in both future pools and Is a grade 1 winner no doubt he belongs on the above mentioned list. Good call John!
