All signs point to epic Kentucky Derby

Wanna see what. Gail Benson's horse can do yeah lone sailor oh sailor has fifty to one odds so amid a bit deathly not one of the favorites for the race. Apollo was the last Kentucky Derby victor to not race at 2.

Let the man, then, assess the uncertainty born of wide quality: "I think it's the deepest field we've had in a long time".

■ My Boy Jack won the Lexington at Keeneland in his last start and will be one of Mendelssohn's opponents in the Derby.as will Flameaway, who was no factor in the Juvenile Turf but has two wins and two seconds in 2018.

"They wanted to be in on the horse and approached us", Walden said. If we get a hot pace, we will be behind the first flight of horses and that would be great.

Pletcher, a two-time Derby victor trying to become the first trainer in 20 years to win consecutive Derbies, sends out the aforementioned potent foursome of Audible, Magnum Moon, Noble Indy and Vino Rosso, all winners of major preps in their most recent races. Mendelssohn was scheduled to get out of the quarantine barn and onto the track for the first time on Thursday morning.

Houghton and Ben Hyatt feel like they have turned a corner here in 2018 and a Kentucky Derby win on Saturday would only add to that positive feeling.

Of other leading fancies, Magnum Moon drew the 16 stall, with Audible in five, Good Magic in six and Santa Anita Derby runner-up Bolt D'Oro in 11. He trained American Pharoah, the sport's first Triple Crown victor in 37 years. Audible, Good Magic, Justify. Trainer Bob Baffert used the phrase "top-heavy" to assess the field and called race favorite Justify "a handsome mover" who might just need a little racing luck to run away with the Derby.

"I'm looking for a big effort from her", Cox said of Monomoy Girl. "If you don't have success, you're not going to get those opportunities". So, sometimes the luck of the draw, or whatever. "We couldn't be happier with him".

As for advantages of having plural entries, Baffert, 65, sees "absolutely none", then pauses before saying, "Unless you're Todd Pletcher". Third in the morning line at 6-1, Magnum Moon is the most highly rated of four horses that will be saddled for the Derby by Pletcher, who captured the 2017 Derby with Always Dreaming and who will also be represented by Florida Derby hero Audible, Wood Memorial winner Vino Rosso and Louisiana Derby victor Noble Indy. His capacity to get horses to this point is a feat of towering steadiness. Suddenly, instead of covering the simple joy of the victor, I was instead 180 degrees away on the backside of Churchill Downs with a good man and trainer Larry Jones covering the unbearable devastation that hit him and his barn. He only can get in if one of the 20 in the main body of the race is withdrawn by scratch time, which is 9 a.m. ET Friday.

All right Kentucky Derby yet that go to the big event. "The derby has gone on for 144 years, so this is not a new event, but people are really wanting to capitalize on the greatest two minutes in sports and use it in a way to promote our mission and vision for the Springs and fundraising". "They look pretty impressive".
