The post positions are drawn, the morning line is out, and the final morning workouts are in the books, so now it is time to rank every contender at Churchill Downs for the 140th running of the Kentucky Derby.
The two most exciting minutes in sports are coming up on Saturday at 6:24 pm (ET) and will be televised on NBC.
The rankings are based on speed, pace, race set up, connections, and post position. While the No. 1-ranked contender will have the best chance of winning the race, that runner may not end up offering the best betting value at post time.
Let’s rank every contender at Churchill Downs for the Run for the Roses.
