*Odds as of Mid-Day Saturday

The early favorite was Zandon but as the race gets closer that looks to be changing.

Several trainers have multiple horses running in 2022. Todd Pletcher has 3. Brad Cox has 3. One of the big stories this year is not about who’s at the Derby this year but who’s NOT at the Derby this year. Trainer Bob Baffert has no entries due to a suspension after last year’s disqualification of Medina Spirit.
