The "Run for the Roses" only takes a couple of minutes, yet the country's most famous horse race attracted more than 150,000 fans in person and an average of 16.4 million television viewers throughout the country previous year.

Like Magnum Moon, he is trained by Todd Pletcher, who has experience winning at Churchill Downs. Depending on how hot the early pace is will determine if he has his nose in front at the wire.

Also, if you're looking at trends to follow, the favorite has now won five straight Kentucky Derbys - that's a pretty good run for a 20-horse race. The son of Curlin should love the distance and will be ridden by Jose Ortiz, one of the nation's bright young jockeys.
