On Wednesday at noon, final entries were taken and post positions were drawn for the 136th running of the $2 million Kentucky Derby (G1). A full field of 20 three-year-olds will go 1 1/4 miles on Saturday at Churchill Downs. 22 horses were entered, with Pleasant Prince and Setsuko being eliminated due to insufficient graded stakes earnings.

The Derby draw with John Asher,
Unlike the "draft draw" held the last few years, Churchill Downs reverted back to the traditional double-blind draw for this year's running. John Asher hosted the proceedings, with racing secretary Ben Huffman drawing the entry sheets and assistant secretary Dan Bourque drawing the numbers. Asher pointed out that Huffman shuffled the entry sheets, a reference to some years when this was not done and the names came out in alphabetical order.

After the numbers were drawn, handicapper Mike Battaglia announced the morning line, saying that despite the post positions he did not make any changes. 3-1 favorite Lookin at Lucky, an unlucky third in a troubled trip in the Santa Anita Derby, will break from the rail under jockey Garrett Gomez for trainer Bob Baffert. Santa Anita Derby winner Sidney's Candy is the 5-1 second choice, but he drew the far outside post 20 for trainer John Sadler and jockey Joe Talamo. Three horses are tied at 10-1 third choice, Ice Box in post 2, filly Devil May Care in post 11, and Awesome Act in post 16. Two equipment changes were announced: Lookin at Lucky will race with blinkers off, while Devil May Care will race with blinkers on.

The Kentucky Derby will be televised on NBC from 4-7:00pm EDT but you can watch most of the Derby card on ESPN from 1-5:00pm. Both networks will broadcast in HD this year. Free past performances for the Kentucky Derby and Kentucky Oaks are available from Daily Racing Form. The Kentucky Derby goes off at 6:24pm ET, carded as Race 11 of a 13-race card on Saturday May 1st.
