Post Position: 1
Odds: 10-1

Owner Bob Yagos agreed to sell Archarcharch (center) after a win at the Southwest Stakes in February, but he had a change of heart after the other party returned the contract 15 minutes late. The result? A come-from-behind victory at the Arkansas Derby on April 16. Archarcharch came from 10th place, making a move after the mile marker to secure the win. The extra 1/8-mile at the Derby will benefit horses that can hang onto the pace and finish hard. If Archarcharch can stay out of trouble along the rail, he could put extra money in Yagos' pocket.
