Tom Keyser, The Sun...................... Monarchos.. Point Given......Express Tour

Keyser's comment: Point Given is the powerhouse, but can a favorite win the Kentucky Derby two years in a row? This race is just too hard to win. Point Given's temperament, post position or bad racing luck could hinder him. Monarchos showed in the Florida Derby that he has the rapid turn of foot it takes to win the Derby. Express Tour has looked the picture while training in the mornings.
