2006 Kentucky Derby Field
13 of 21
Bluegrass Cat
Odds: 30-1
Post position: 13
Jockey: Ramon Dominguez
When this son of the mighty Storm Cat (stud fee: $500,000) reeled off four consecutive victories between late September and mid-February, he looked like the horse that would bring Todd Pletcher his first Derby victory. Then he lost to the mediocre Deputy Glitters in the Tampa Bay Derby and was outclassed in the Blue Grass. Now he looks like an expensive horse that will prolong Pletcher's frustration.
