The 2023 Florida Derby dissected by Geo Sette

March 30, 2023

Geo Sette does his usual deep dive breakdown of this year’s Florida Derby featuring the early Kentucky Derby favorite and two-year-old champion Forte. Forte hails from the powerful Todd Pletcher stable who looks as loaded ay anyone heading into the Run for the Roses.

Is this as simple as it looks on paper for Forte? Maybe it is but these are may be an exacta Geo leans to and what about the wide draw and fact Forte is already in the Derby and doesn’t need a win or any additional points to make the gate for the big dance.

Where does Geo see potential in the other runners? If you enjoy the show please hit the like button or leave a comment and let us know.
