2006 Kentucky Derby Field

10 of 21
A.P. Warrior
Odds: 15-1
Post Position: 10
Jockey: Corey Nakatani
Trainer John Shirreffs, who sent 50-1 longshot Giacomo to his stunning victory in last year's Derby, is back this year with a better horse. A.P. Warrior, a $1.3 million yearling purchase, is the grandson of Seattle Slew and will chase the leaders from the middle of the pack. Good omen: He's living in the same stall that housed Giacomo last May, and starting from the same post position. And he has more talent.
