Omaha Beach (4-1) -He got a really good post position (#12) for this race and already drawing comparisons to Triple Crowns winners. I also like this horse with plenty of rain in the forecast for Derby day as he has proved to win on a sloppy track.  

 

  1. Game Winner -This horse has finished second twice and previously lost by a nose to Omaha Beach. He comes in as the reigning Breeders’ Cup Juvenile winner
  2. Improbable -It is a fact that this horse lost by one length on a sloppy track at the Arkansas Derby. He has lost twice by just a bit. He surely has a chance to win.
  3. Roadster This is another Bob Baffert horse that has a chance to step in and win. I don’t see it and that is why he is in 4th.
  4.  Tacitus

Last Place will be Gray Magician
