Date: 05/03/2011

On Wednesday at 5pm, final entries were taken and post positions were drawn for the 137th 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 Sway Away and Ruler On Ice being eliminated due to insufficient graded stakes earnings.

Unlike the "draft draw" held for several years, Churchill Downs reverted back to the traditional double-blind draw last year and again this year. After the numbers were drawn, handicapper Mike Battaglia announced the morning line, saying that despite the post positions he did not make any changes. Florida Derby winner Dialed In at 4-1 is a narrow favorite over 2-year-old champion Uncle Mo, who was set at 9-2. Arkansas Derby runner-up Nehro is next at 6-1 with Arkansas Derby winner Archarcharch and Blue Grass Stakes winner Midnight Interlude both at 10-1.

Below is the field listed in post position order with morning line odds. Be sure to click the link on each horse's name to view full info, stats, and a photo where available. A star next to the dosage index indicates a dual qualifier.

The Kentucky Derby will be televised on NBC from 4-7:00pm EDT but you can watch most of the Derby card on VERSUS from 11:00am-4:00pm. Free past performances for the Kentucky Derby are available from Daily Racing Form and BRISnet.com. The Kentucky Derby goes off at 6:24pm ET, carded as Race 11 of a 13-race card on Saturday May 7th.
