There was drama Wednesday afternoon, as the annual Pill Pull helped decide the post positions for the 141st Kentucky Derby. The drama kept building because the number 1 post, the spot every trainer, owner, and probably horse wanted to avoid, was the final post chosen randomly chosen.
The favorite American Pharoah will be going out of the 18th post as a 5-2 favorite. His Bob Baffert stablemate, Dortmund, is the next favorite. Dortmund is 3-1 out of the 8th spot.
Carpe Diem has a lot of interest, but the thoroughbred got stuck in the number 2 post. The Horse, Ocho Ocho Ocho will be coming out of the 1 spot.
We spoke with veteran racing analyst Mark Coomes to get his take on what to expect in the 141st Run for the Roses.
