  • Harper: How do you win the Kentucky Derby? Better have Karma

     By Chuck Harper

    For decades now there have been many attempts to provide us with tools and systems that help us make our Derby picks. For years we first looked at the Dosage Index, a measurement of stamina in a horses pedigree that would indicate if they could get the Derby distance of one mile and a quarter.
