With Omaha Beach the morning favorite, Kentucky Derby goes as the Saturday 1
Here's a look at the Derby field with coaches and jockeys. Mike Battaglia also determined his 45th consecutive morning lines.
1. War of the Will, 20-1 (Mark Casse / Tyler Gafalion): The winner of the Light (G3) and Risen Star (G2) received a slight injury a few paces from Luisiana Derby Gate (G2), finishing ninth. as a heavy favorite. Casse swears that he has no late physical problems, but internal pulling is a major problem for a horse who wants to factor early.
2. Taxi, 20-1 (Danny Gargan / Junior Alvarado): He claims his first win at Killarney in the current relationship, has since made three starts, all 1/8-mile classified bets on Aqueduct, including winning the stakes the withers (G3). Gargan is Derby's first coach with a stallion who seems to be fit to pursue the pace.
3. By my standards, 20-1 (Brett Calhoun / Gabrielle Sage): Calhoun, winner of more than 3,000 races, has his first Derby starter in a foal that could not seem better in his morning work. The son of the first-of-a-kind Goldencents mother seems to overturn the tendency of the winners of Louisiana Derby (G2) to come together shortly on the first Saturday in May.
4. Gray Magician, 50-1 (Peter Miller / Drayden Van Dyke): Californian stallion is ready to become the first place of Derby (D2) in the UAE to experience Kentucky Derby. He may not be good enough, but his connections try to understand that Gray the Magician should not have the problem of pulling out a quarter of a mile. It will be one of the highest prices in this area.
5. Amazing, 6-1 (Bob Baffert / Irad Ortz Jr.): As with the winner of the game, this baffler is twice the second time to start his season, but there have always been great hopes for Chestnut who once filled the winner in a triple crown. Last autumn, Incredibly, he scored a winning victory over Churchill's track. The blinkers go out for the derby. George Viever / Javier Castellano): The winner of the Blue Grass Stakes (G2) will not win (19-21) style points for unconventional, cross-stroke. But it still does not slow it down. The multiple winner Vekoma is slightly raced and the numbers fit into the early scenario. How far will it reach
7. Maximum Security, 10-1 (Jason Servis / Lewis Sage): Offered as a $ 16,000 marker in its first start, hosts of Gary and Mary West are unbeaten and relatively unverified. He publishes the highest values for the late pace in this area, setting a slight pace in the Florida Derby (G1). How will it cope when there is more pressure?
8. Tacitus, 10-1 (Bill Mott / Jose Ortiz): One of the only two auxiliary points that joins the Derby, the first one escapes the champion. but he has always proved himself on the day of the race. Gray overcame very early trouble to get the Memorial Tree (G2) for the last time. 9. Plus Que Parfait, 30-1 (Brendan Walsh / Ricardo Santana Jr.): He failed to compete internally to open his 3- annual campaign so that Pure Parfaes travels abroad to win Derby in the UAE (G2)) with some daring stretching movements. Returning to last year, he has been reputed second in the Churchill Downs race 2. 10. Humor Reduction, 30-1 (Todd Plecher / Cori Lanneri): He made great progress for to win the Sunland Derby (G3) in a record fashion. While John Velasquez remains in the Code of Honor, it is not too bad to take on this place Churchill's long-term leading jockey, Lannery. Look for a hiking trip and a long delay.
11. Haikal, 30-1 (Kiaran McLaughlin / Rajiv Maragh): The winner of the Gotham Stakes (G3) is late with his competition but he will still have to prove about two spins after finishing a third that is not dangerous . Wooden memorial (G2). Haikal is the brother of the late spook, a sprinter who earns 1 degree.
12. Omaha Beach, 4-1 (Richard Mandela / Mike Smith): He won Derby's favoritism with California victories for the rebel charges of Oakland Park (G2) and Arkansas Derby (G1). Oh, and keeping last year's winner from Kentucky Derby, Smith, surely helped. Handicaps like his ability to make an early move and maintain it.
13. The Code of Honor, 15-1 (Shug McGaughey / John Velasquez): McGaughey's first rival, as his Orb win for 2013 is a highly valued and well-stocked stallion who, if there is anything to knock , may be thin. side by side. It's growing, but the winner of the Youth Fund (G2) has already proved to be a fighter.
14. Win Win Win, 15-1 (Michael Trombetta / Julian Pennel): Derby's favorite coach since 2006 Sweetnothernsaint has his second starter in this Hat Trick colt, which set a record for bets on Tampa Bay Downs around a turn , then it turned out  when he closed to get a second against speed in blue grasses (G2). 15. Master Fainers, 50-1 (Koichi Tsunoda / Julien Leparo): The first of its kind in Japan gentleman who will competes in Derby, is also third, based in his country, to launch the race. He could not beat his local competition, so he is unlikely to do much with Churchill Downs. But the presence of Master Fencer will open Derby for Japanese betting
16. Winner of the Match, 5-1 (Bob Baffert / Joel Rosario): Unbeatable to 2, and the winner of the Churchill Youth Cup, this son of Candy Ride has suffered two minor injuries in rebel bets (G2) and Grandfather Christmas. Anita Derby (G1). But Baffer returned it slowly and looked back at the exact moment
17. Roadster, 6-1 (Bob Baffert / Floran Geru): Head of "TMZ Horse" after Baffert last July mentioned that this could be his next American Pharoah or Justify, Roadster has so far met the expectations. Having finished his 2-year season for a breathing question, he is 2-for-2 since winning the Derby Santa Anita (G1). 18. Toddy, 30-1 (Steve Asmussen / John Cort): It did not look like the last time in the Arkansas Derby (G1) ), but otherwise it was a consistent contender. Two back, he showed an elite turn to trace Amazing in Rebel Bets (G2) and won a couple of bets on a small chain
19. Spinoff, 30-1 (Todd Pletcher / Manny Franco): This is not your typical contribution to Plecour, though Spinof looks like a stallion in the improvement. Hard Spun's son did not enjoy two pairs at the age of 2, but returned to beat the winners in a Tampa Bay Downs surcharge of 11 3/4 lengths, then went straight to the Louisiana Derby (G2) for be second. 20. Selskata kashta, 30-1 (Bill Mott / Flavian Pratt): The only contender for derby , who appeared on board in two great preparations, this Lookin At Lucky's son may be the worst horse in the field. The position does not matter, given that. He will find his place in the late stages after the fourth in Louisiana Derby (G2) and third in the Arkansas derby (G1).
There is one who qualifies for Bodexpress (Gustavo Delgado / Chris Landeros), the girl who ranks second in Florida Derby (G1). He has until 9:00 am On Fridays to bake in the field. Other followers in Derby's preference list – Signalman, Anothertwistafate, Sueno and Bourbon War – will target any goal that is shaping up as strong Preakness Stakes on May 18th in Pimlico.
