2006 Kentucky Derby Field
9 of 21
Sharp Humor
Odds: 20-1
Post position: 9
Jockey: Mark Guidry
One of two blindingly fast horses -- along with Sinister Minister -- who will be dueling for the early lead. It seems unlikely that this son of noted sprint sire Distorted Humor will survive the Derby's full 11/2 miles, but his gutty performance behind Barbaro in the 1 1/8-mile Florida Derby on April 1 gives any handicapper pause. He shouldn't have been able to run that far, either.
