Revolutionary enters the 2013 Kentucky Derby coming off of three straight victories, including the Louisiana Derby (G2). Based on his current form, Revolutionary will dominate the field and win the 2013 Kentucky Derby. 

Leading up to the race, Revolutionary has earned 110 points, which is good for a fifth-place tie. Leaders Verrazano and Orb have collected 150 points, via the Kentucky Derby Leaderboard

While Verrazano and Orb are considered the favorites, Revolutionary has the form to take them down. Coming off of victories at the Louisiana Derby and Withers, Revolutionary is running well with strong paces to make his name known. 

Notable trainer Todd Pletcher compared Revolutionary's racing style to NBA prospect Peyton Siva:

In addition to his solid form, Revolutionary has the pedigree needed to compete at such a high level. He gets stamina from his dam, Runup the Colors, and his blazing speed from sire War Pass. The wonderful mix provides Revolutionary with just the right mixture of skills. 

Heading into the Kentucky Derby, jockey Javier Castellano will give way to Calvin Borel as Revolutionary's rider. Borel is a three-time Kentucky Derby winner, last winning the race in 2010 with Super Saver. He also won the race in 2007 and 2009. 

Borel clearly has the experience needed to ride this horse to victory. Just days ago, Borel was elected to the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame. He will be looking to celebrate that honor with yet another victory at the Kentucky Derby. 

In order to win the race, Revolutionary will need to avoid traffic as he makes his push toward the front of the pack. With 20 horses likely competing in the race this year, that is definitely something to keep an eye on from Revolutionary. 

With great form, strong running style, solid pedigree and a quality jockey, Revolutionary has everything needed to run a great race and win the Kentucky Derby.
