Date: 5/6/2022

Results are here!

The 148th running of the $3 million Kentucky Derby Presented by Woodford Reserve (G1), the "Run for the Roses" featuring the best 3-year-olds of 2022, is on the first Saturday in May. Fans will be allowed in this year with no capacity limits. Entries closed on Monday May 2 and a full field of 20 was draw with 2 also eligibles. Zandon is the 3-1 morning line favorite off his win in the Blue Grass Stakes (G1) after finishing third in the Risen Star (G2). Flavien Prat, who rode him at Keeneland, gets the call for trainer Chad Brown from post 10.

The second choice at 7-2 is Epicenter off wins in the Risen Star (G2) and Louisiana Derby (G2) at Fair Grounds. Regular rider Joel Rosario will be in the irons out of the 3 hole for trainer Steve Asmussen. Messier is the 8-1 third choice off his second place finish in the Santa Anita Derby (G1) after winning the Robert B. Lewis (G3) both at Santa Anita. Regular rider John Velazquez rides out of post 6 for trainer Tim Yakteen who replaced the suspended Bob Baffert just before the Santa Anita Derby. There is no auxiliary gate anymore after the debut of the 20-horse starting gate in 2020, so there is no longer a gap between posts 14 and 15.

Below is a list of the entries with their post position, trainer, jockey, morning line odds, and dosage index. Free past performances are available here and here (look for Cyberknife). Each horse names links to a profile with lots of info and a photo. Entries for the entire Kentucky Derby card can be found on Equibase.

Update: Ethereal Road scratched Friday morning, so Rich Strike draws in and Rattle N Roll is out.
