Sidney's Candy

Post position 20. Odds 5-1.

Owned by the trust operated by diet tycoon Jenny Craig and named for her late husband, Sid, Sidney's Candy won the Santa Anita Derby and is one of two Kentucky Derby starters for trainer John Sadler (the other is frontrunner Line of David). Sidney's Candy is a solid horse but faced one hurdle coming to Kentucky: He has never run on dirt. The post position draw gave him another problem: Big Brown (2008) was the first horse in 79 years to win the Derby from the No. 20 post position.
