Update, Friday Morning: Union Rags is the number two favorite behind Bodemeister, although many track writers think he has the edge.
Another horse, he raced against and lost aganst is Hansen, but many question if Hansen has the ability to prevail on the Derby course.

|Hansen thinks he can take Union Rags.|
My partiality is a name thing. If we working types are to have any equity in this country, we need some big wins from the unions. And Union Rags is ridden by Julien Leparoux, who bears, almost, the same name as my grandson, Julian, who is slated to begin his run of a lifetime May 28 in Denver. I plan to be at that starting gate. At least in the room outside.
