BETTING OVERVIEW: With zero points on the Road to the Kentucky Derby Leaderboard entering the Toyota Blue Grass Stakes, My Man Sam finished as the runner-up to punch his ticket into Saturday's race. Short on experience, My Man Sam did earn an eight-length win in January, which gave him a 108 Equibase Speed Figure. Fast, but again, inexperienced, My Man Sam is an intriguing sleeper.
