Kentucky Derby post position draw

Godolphin’s Kentucky Derby hopes had their post positions drawn by trainer Saeed bin Suroor during the traditional two-tiered selection process this afternoon at Churchill Downs.

Regal Ransom – post 10 – morning line odds 30-1
Desert Party – post 19 – morning line odds 15-1

Big Brown won last year’s Kentucky Derby from the far outside stall in post 20.


  1. Regal Ransom was the recipient of the best draw yesterday, imo, he will be tracking speed from the outside this time, and I expect a monster performance; he might win this race by daylight if he makes the same improvement as he did in his win over Desert Party. Given he was racing on the inside last time, and the draw has him outside this time, that improvement could very well be forthcoming. Regal Ransom, possibly by 5 lengths or more.

  2. Interesting take, and I don’t disagree. He doesn’t HAVE to be right on the point. I’ll be happy with that result too.
