Kentucky Derby Top 5, as of March 23

Kentucky Derby Top 5

Written on March 23.

We’ve seen some impressive performances over the past couple of weeks, most notably watching American Pharoah return and dominate in the Rebel.  Firing Line, off his loss to Dortmund in amazing fashion in the Robert B. Lewis, shipped to Sunland Park and dominated — although his speed figure came back low. Still, his win was incredibly flattering to Dortmund.

So, here is my top 5.  I’ve also included a picture. I’ve placed them in order of finish, with lengths representing the distance between them. Currently, Dortmund is the clear leader, with a second group bunched behind. Bolo, who was ultra-impressive in his dirt debut, just might make a crazy charge and get them all by the end.

1. Dortmund

2. American Pharoah

3. Carpe Diem

4. Upstart

5. Bolo
