The Word On Classic Causeway

He finished his major Derby preparation Saturday, with a six-furlong move of 1:13.20.

Betting insight from Dave Bontempo

He’s back in the Derby as a high-profile winner. While he finished last in the Florida Derby, Classic Causeway initially jumped out to the front as set a strong pace.

“I’ve been through every excuse not to run him, and I can’t find one,” said trainer Brian Lynch.

However, that last place finish is bound to extend his odds, projecting to +3000.
