2012 Kentucky Derby Picks And Predictions: Union Rags, Dullahan Remain Solid Choices

If you're looking for a quick refresher before you make your 2012 Kentucky Derby picks SI.com's Kentucky Derby preview seems like a reasonable bet—their slideshow offers a paragraph of information about each horse and his humans, the post positions, and the current odds.
