The stage is now set for the 141st Kentucky Derby.
American Pharoah is the favorite at 5-2 and Dortmund is the second choice at 3-1 to win the first leg of horse racing’s Triple Crown.
Both horses are trained by renowned horse trainer Bob Baffert.
Baffert recognizes that American Pharoah will start from a tough spot. On Wednesday evening, the thoroughbred drew the No. 18 post, near the far outside rail.
“It’s not a bad spot for him. He’s big, he’s quick, he’s fast, he can maneuver,” he said.
“It could have been worse.”
