Let’s examine three horses poised to make an impact on Saturday’s race:

Forever Young

This Japanese contender boasts an impressive record, being one of only two undefeated horses in the field. With victories in all five of his starts, including notable wins in graded-stakes races such as the UAE Derby and Saudi Derby, Forever Young stands out as a strong candidate from overseas to potentially claim the first ever international victory in the Derby amidst its internationalization in recent decades.

Domestic Product

Following a notable triumph at the Tampa Bay Derby, Domestic Product has garnered attention for its impressive training regimen leading up to the Kentucky Derby. Bolstered by the formidable Chad Brown-Irad Ortiz Jr. connection, this horse emerges as a standout among the longshots.


Fierceness enters the race as a deserving favorite, particularly after a commanding 13-and-a-half-length victory in the Florida Derby. If they can replicate their best performance, there might not be a challenger in this race. However, as is often the case in racing, unforeseen obstacles may arise, and perfection is seldom guaranteed.
