Winners and Losers of the Post Draw


Dortmund drew inside of of the speed, but he has the shortest distance to the rail without actually being on the rail. If he breaks good this is a perfect spot for this big horse. 

Firing Line another that got just the right post as he will be breaking from post ten which puts him smack in the middle right where you want to be. 

Mubtaahij the six post is really going to help this horse it will put him right behind the speed and give him a solid spot to stalk. 

Bob Baffert for once Bob didn't draw the rail in the Derby looks like things are finally going to play out the way he wants. 


Ocho Ocho Ocho is an obvious loser here and he will need to drop back and settle which actually may help this colt. 

Carpe Diem not a good spot for this colt he will be one of the first horses to load and with his previous gate issues this wont be a good spot for this colt. 

Materiality he will have to send from post three which is not ideal for this colt. 

Todd Pletcher I'm sure if he had the choice he would swap his posts around as his lesser two drew excellent and his top two drew terrible.
