Early Analysis

It’s hard to get a gauge on Yawanna Twist. While his second place showing at the Illinois Derby qualifies as a sharp prep, he has only made three starts this season, he didn’t compete in the Kentucky Derby and is coming off a six-week layoff. He also doesn’t have any stakes wins and has never run a triple digit Beyer. So while his last two outings are encouraging, it’s hard to believe he’ll be able to compete with the big boys on Saturday coming off such a long layoff.
