Dark Horses Worth a Second Look

Oxbow (25-1 odds)

Many fans aren’t thinking twice about Oxbow because of the fact that the horse finished fifth in the Arkansas Derby this April, but at 25-1 odds coming into Friday, this is definitely a horse worth a second look.

Not only do you have to see who trained this horse—four-time Derby-winning trainer D. Wayne Lukas—the addition of a Hall of Fame jockey like Gary Stevens makes this a long shot with a real shot to win.

Add in the fact that Oxbow was lucky enough to draw the second post position, and this is the kind of underdog that thrives on the grand stage of the Kentucky Derby.

 

Palace Malice (25-1 odds)

While the No. 10 post position has stifled the odds surrounding Palace Malice, there is still a chance that this strong horse could get out in front of the pack and stay away from traffic.

Palace Malice has not won a race in the horse’s last four attempts, but a strong showing at the Blue Grass Stakes—finished second to Java's War—gives credence to the notion that this horse will be a contender to show at the very least.

Another factor playing into a possible stellar run for Palace Malice is the fact that he is trained by the legendary Todd Pletcher. With everything coming together at the right moment, Palace Malice will be a serious threat if the horse gets away from traffic.

 

Will Take Charge (20-1 odds)

Another horse trained by the legendary Lukas is Will Take Charge, and with the No. 17 post position, there is a chance that the incredibly fast horse could make a legitimate Run for the Roses on Saturday.

Despite not having a race since mid-March, Will Take Charge is ready to capitalize on the momentum created in the last start—a huge win at the Rebel Stakes—and ride it all the way to the front of the pack via the outside lane.

Being as outside to start the race as Will Take Charge has been positioned, it will be the top priority for jockey Jon Court to get the horse out of the gates strong and out in front of traffic.

If Will Take Charge gets into space, that means trouble for the competition.
