On Wednesday at 5pm, final entries were taken and post positions were drawn for the 139th 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. 21 horses were entered, with Fear the Kitten getting in as an also eligible who will draw in the race if someone scratches by 9am Friday.

Unlike the "draft draw" held for several years, Churchill Downs reverted back to the traditional double-blind draw a couple of years ago. After the numbers were drawn, handicapper Mike Battaglia announced the morning line. Florida Derby winner Orb was set as favorite at 7-2 with Wood Memorial winner Verrazano second choice at 4-1, and Santa Anita Derby winner Goldencents was the third choice at 5-1. With those three so close in odds, it was all the way up to 10-1 for the fourth choice, Louisiana Derby winner Revolutionary.

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 NBC Sports Network from 11:00am-4:00pm. Free past performances for the Kentucky Derby are available here after the post positions were drawn and here from in alphabetica order from BRISnet.com. The Kentucky Derby goes off at 6:24pm ET, carded as Race 11 of a 13-race card on Saturday May 4th.

Update: Black Onyx was scratched at 11:30am on Friday. Because it was after 9am, also-eligible Fear the Kitten will now draw in. Black Onyx came back from his gallop this morning with some filling and lameness which x-rays showed was a non-displaced chip in his ankle. They are still waiting for word on whether he will need surgery or if time off will heal it. The stewards have decided that the one hole in the starting gate will be left open.
