Diamond King

Trainer: John Servis
Jockey: Javier Castellano
Odds: 30-1

Good Magic

Trainer: Chad Brown
Jockey: Jose Ortiz

Odds: 15-1

Lone Sailor was second in the Grade II Louisiana Derby and eighth in the Kentucky Derby.


Trainer: Rodolphe Brisset

The colt earned a spot in the Kentucky Derby with a Tampa Bay Derby win, but his team decided to forgo the Kentucky Derby in order to focus in on the Preakness.

Sporting Chance

Odds: 20-1

Tenfold did not race as a 2-year-old and missed this year’s Kentucky Derby after a fifth-place run in the Arkansas Derby. He’s 3-2-0-0, and Espinoza — a three-time Preakness winner — is riding him.
