Daddy Long Legs

Post Position: 1; Odds: 30-1

The mystery horse of this year's Kentucky Derby, Daddy Long Legs ships into Louisville for trainer Aidan O'Brien. The last time most States-side racing fans saw this son of Scat Daddy was in November's Breeders' Cup Juvenile, in which he finished 12th (out of 13), beaten almost 20 lengths. After almost five months off, he returned to win the United Arab Emirates Derby in Dubai, his only start of the year. His light racing schedule and overseas preparation would buck historical training methods for Derby winners.
