How They'll Finish

View CoverRead All Articles

Win
Colonel John: Should love the 1 1/4-mile distance and seems to be making the adjustment to the dirt at Churchill Downs

Place
Big Brown (right): May possess the most raw speed of any horse in the field, but the distance could be a bit too far for him

Show
Gayego: Had no trouble making the switch from synthetics to dirt in Arkansas, where he ran the best race of his career

Long shot
Z Fortune: After coming up empty in the Rebel on March 15, he rebounded with an impressive runner-up showing in the Arkansas Derby

Don't bother
Pyro: Seems full of talent, but even good horses don't win the Derby after running 10th in their final prep race
