The Favorite American Pharoah 5-2
5 races with 4 wins and one show. Really a strong, strong favorite. His biggest competition is Dortmund which we will look at next.
Pharoah has 3 big Derby horses on the sire's side. Sire: Pioneer of the Nile finished 2nd in 2009 who was sired by Empire Maker 2003 Belmont Stakes winner and has 1990 Derby winner Unbridled on this line as well. Strong record, strong blood and a real favorite at 5-2. His biggest issue in this race is that he is starting from the 18th position. The Derby is 1 1/4 miles to begin with and now he will have to run longer as well. If he doesn't make the start really quickly and get into the middle of the pack he could be stuck at the back or running wide.
Big Time Player Dortmund at 3-1
Yesterday Dortmund was at 5-1. We'll how much the line tightens as the Derby draws near.
Dortmund has a perfect lifetime race history. 6 starts and 6 wins. He is trained by Champion Bob Baffert. If Baffert's training you have to pay attention to any horse. Baffert doesn't race donkeys.
Dortmund is sired by the last horse most people thought could take the Triple Crown. (Many thought California Chrome could do it as well to give Chrome his due.) Big Brown was BIG. Derby and Preakness winner he was pulled out of the Belmont for hoof trouble. With a perfect record, Big Brown for a sire and Baffert as a trainer...well I'll have him somewhere on my little fun bets.
Another contender Carpe Diem at 8-1
His betting line has also tightened in the last day. He is trained by Todd Pletcher, another Derby champion trainer. Like Baffert he has to be considered as an asset to the horse.
Carpe Diem has 5 starts with 4 wins and one show. Sire: Giant's Causeway, an English/Irish runner who won 6 Group 1 events and narrowly missed winning the 2000 Breeder Cup Classic. He was known as the "Iron Man" and gives Carpe the promise that the distance will not be an issue. He'll be somewhere in my $2 bets.
[There are plenty of other to consider. Use http://kentuckyderby.com/horses for a good run down on them all]
El Kabier 9 starts 4 wins 2 show 2 place. Weak blood but a good horse. Watched next to last race a win. Come from behind. Last race was a place. Calvin Borel, championship jockey, might make a patented rail run which he did for his first derby with Mine That Bird a 50-1 longshot.. I saw El Kabier race outside, from behind (deep behind) and win by at least 3 lengths coasting 2 lengths before the line. Still a long shot but never count Calvin Borel out. This is notable only because of Borel. Th 30-1
Bolo 5 starts 2 wins 2place Has tendancy to run wide. Form seems to say that it's 3wd in 3 races. Trainer and Jockey both Southern Cal. Jockey hasn't been up on him before. 30-1
Here's your super longshot 50-1
Ocho Ocho Ocho 5 starts 3 wins Good blood on top and bottom. Sire a good winner Dam a winner and out of big blood.

For all Hillary Clinton lovers, haters and those in between, this is worth the time to watch. The media called it a passionate speech but entire different than I expected.
After a full performance you realize that, like Janis so long ago, Juana Amaya has shown us her soul and left her heart on stage. Dance On
