West Saratoga Kentucky Derby Prediction and Pick

West Saratoga's eight top-three finishes are more than any horse in the field, but his average Speed Score of 80.6 bests only Society Man's 77.2 among the 18 qualified horses in the field with Speed Score data.

Despite racing volume, West Saratoga is also one of eight qualified horses in the field not to have recorded a Speed Score of at least 100 in a single race.
