Two Phil's Kentucky Derby Prediction and Pick

Two Phil's was a runaway 5-length winner of the Jeff Ruby Steaks. He finished a close third in the Risen Star Stakes behind winner Angel of Empire and was the only pace presser to hold up through a blistering hot pace in the Risen Star. This colt is improving and is an overlooked longshot who is capable of hitting the board or completing Superfecta and Super High Five.

Two Phil's is following in the hoof steps of his sire Hard Spun, who finished second in the 2007 Kentucky Derby. He'll be forwardly placed and pressing a more moderate pace. Two Phil's has also shown an excellent balanced Energy Distribution Profile.

Remember, huge longshot Kentucky Derby winner Rich Strike finished third in the Jeff Ruby Steaks on his way to glory in the 2022 Run for the Roses. Two Phil's is capable of another surprise finish and offers value when betting on the 2023 Kentucky Derby.
