PP Horse Trainer ML Odds*
1 War of Will Casse 4-1
After winning three in a row including a win over Country House in the Risen Star, he floundered in the Louisiana Derby. Sure there was some kind of freak occurence leaving the starting gate that day but he never recovered and finished a well beaten 9th. Before the Derby we said toss that effort because he was working well at Churchill. And then the Derby happened. He was well placed throughout most of the 1 1/4 miles distance and was definitely affected by Maximum Security not once, but twice. However, after watching the race many times, it’s fair to say that he wasn’t going to win the Derby regardless as the distance was simply too much for him. He’ll cut back in the Preakness. And with the absence of the top four Derby finishers, he should be given another shot in here. But it’s becoming more evident that his days of ‘WOW’ are days of old.
2 Bourbon War Hennig 12-1
Exits the Florida Derby seeking his third win but was beaten in that one by Maximum Security and Bodexpress. He was fourth in the Florida feature, just 3/4 of a length behind official Derby runner up Code of Honor. With those facts alone, this guy should be taken seriously in the Preakness. Adds blinkers. But my gut is telling me that he may not be the one run type or have enough left in the tank to finish first if placed closer to the pace in the Preakness. Still must be used on your tickets.
3 Warrior’s Charge Cox 12-1
Cox has added this pacesetting winner of his last two as a rabbit for stablemate Owendale who will need help if he’s going to run down the speed in here. Geroux has decided on Owendale so Castellano lands here — and that’s a plus. Adds 1/8 miles to his previous two longest winning efforts but see no reason why he couldn’t go all the way in what is a wide open affair.
4 Improbable Baffert 5-2
Kentucky Derby favorite and son of City Zip did NOT like the off going for the Roses. Still managed to finish 5th (officially 4th after the DQ) despite climbing every step of the way through the mud. Won his first three starts before getting outstretched by a neck by Long Range Toddy in the Rebel as the heavy favorite. Sent out with blinkers in the Arkansas Derby as the runner-up when defeated by stablemate Omaha Beach. And so it followed, logically, that he would play the favorites role once OB was removed from consideration in Louisville. Watch the replay of the Kentucky Derby and you’ll see him struggle to keep up. The extended forecast for Pimlico has only a 10% chance of rain. And with clear skies and a fast track he’ll go off as the Preakness favorite and a tough competitor.
5 Owendale Cox 10-1
Connections appear to have targeted this one after his win LTO in the G3 Lexington at a price. Before that he was enthusiastically entered in the G2 Risen Star off a theretofore highest BRIS speed figure 96 in a $50K OCN1X at Fair Grounds but did not perform well. However, the rebound in the Lexington and the accompanying 99 BRIS speed figure (tied for highest last race fig with Alwaysmining) gives him a fighting chance in here from off the pace.
6 Market King Lucas 30-1
Gotta love it when Lucas takes a shot at the Classics because experience is key to winning the BIG ones. But also have to wonder what he’s seeing in the morning when considering this horse’s past performances. There’s not much there, there. Definitely looks like a one paced player. Exits the Blue Grass when he didn’t show much at long odds. The narrow Blue Grass runner up Win Win Win went in the Derby and split the field. Signalman – third in the Blue Grass – makes his first start since. The point; can the Blue Grass be considered a “key” race for this one given Lucas’ entry in here? If so, there are two others who look better.
7 Alwaysmining Rubley 8-1
Every year there’s the hometown hero who’s good enough to win the local love fest but not good enough when it comes time to face the reality of the Triple Crown Classics. But this year there will be no Triple Crown as Kentucky Derby winner Country House will skip the Preakness. This guy is on a six race winning streak at Laurel and will give it all he’s got but hasn’t faced any of the ones he’ll confront on Preakness Day — several of which have been on the Derby Trail from the start. Still too early to forecast an outcome so we’ll leave it at that for now.
8 Signalman McPeek 30-1
He’s a NW2 lifetime. But it could be worse — as in the case of maiden Bodexpress. He followed a big effort in the BC Juvenile at long odds with his first and only graded stakes victory in the KYJC to end ’18. His two ’19 tries does not include a trip around the sloppy Churchill strip on Derby Day because, ironically, he didn’t have enough points to get in despite two wins more than Bodexpress. Doesn’t have the break and lead or stalking style required to win the Preakness.
9 Bodexpress Delgado 20-1
Running line says he was taken up at the 5/16th pole in the Derby. And for all intents and purposes, he was. But that was not his undoing. To his credit he pressed the pace from the widest post position and kept up with the pacesetter and DQ’d winner Maximum Security — as he did in the Florida Derby. By the time they turned for home and the interference occurred, he had already started to weaken. And it would be a shame if they do run this guy in here before he’s allowed to get his first taste of victory against easier company.
10 Everfast Romans 50-1
The good news is he has at least one win earned in his maiden voyage at Ellis. The bad news — he broke his maiden at Ellis by a neck, no less. Running lines show a competitive spirit against several he’ll face on Saturday. Other than his lone victory, his runner-up placing in the G2 Holy Bull behind the Wallbanger at 128-1 when he outnecked early Derby trail hopeful Maximus Mischief is probably reason enough for Romans to consider him in here. But his other tries in graded company lack any merit and adds intrigue to why Rosario would take the mount on the longest priced horse in the field.
11 Laughing Fox Asmussen 20-1
If you’ve never really considered the all important “key race” angle, you should. He exited the Arkansas Derby behind Omaha Beach and Country House to win next time out for Asmussen. Considering Omaha Beach would have been 2-1 or so in the Derby had he not scratched and the fact that Country House won the Derby at 65-1 — controversial as it was — the Arkansas Derby was the “key race” for the Louisville longshot payoffs in the Derby. With all that said, he’ll face Improbable, the 4-1 Derby favorite and the only other Arkansas Derby participant listed as probable for the Preakness.
12 Anothertwistafate Wright 6-1
Favorite LTO in the Lexington, he was “bothered early and boxed in” but managed to finish in the runner up spot for the second consecutive time since switching from synthetic at Golden Gate where he reeled off three straight wins. Like last years Triple Crown winner Justify, he’s a prodigy of Scat Daddy. But this guy is no Justify and can’t see him hanging around in the end here despite his early turn of foot.
13 Win Win Win Trombetta 15-1
For comparison, he started his career winning three out of his first four — including back to back wins at Laurel to start his career before a second place showing behind Alwaysmining in his third trip to the track for Live Oak Plantation. The favorite in the Tampa Bay Derby off a successful prep over the strip in the Pasco Stakes, deeper waters proved too much for him as he was a rallying third behind the winner and eventual Wood Memorial victor Tacitus. His closing style was more evident in the Blue Grass and overcame traffic trouble to finish second in his best effort to date. He split the field in the crowded Derby and given his Maryland success and competitive efforts on the Derby Trail and he could be one of the ones.
