If I Were Pablo Del Monte's Owners.....

From Novak:
Well, this is interesting.

 A 19 horse field instead of a 20 horse field can cost a couple of million in handle. 2 million in handle at 20% boat is $400,000. If the Derby has turned into a corporate nickel and dime fest, where an owner can't get an extra seat or two, why not let these owners have a little fun.

"We the owners of Pablo Del Monte will enter the Derby, if you pay us $395,000"

Churchill might say "that's bananas Del Monte!", but I bet they'd come back with a counteroffer. It's how they roll.
