145th Kentucky Derby Media Poll

The highly-anticipated Rebel Stakes featured the top two contenders for the 145th Kentucky Derby making their long-awaited return to the track. Today, we preview the latest Media Poll. What are the updated betting odds for Improbable and Game Winner? Find out below.

Improbable and Game Winner, the top Bob Baffert horses on this year’s Kentucky Derby trail, suffered their first career losses.

Despite their respective losses, they did not drop in this week’s Kentucky Derby media poll because the voters believe they still the best horses in the Derby field.

“Don’t discount the Baffert horses’ performances,” said the Buffalo News’ Gene Kershner. “The goal is to be at peak on the first Saturday in May.” What does this mean for the 145th Kentucky Derby?

“Improbable and Game Winner lost their battles Saturday,” added Churchill Downs’ Darren Rogers, “but I still believe they are the two best prospects to win the war.”

This week’s big riser was Long Range Toddy, who defeated Improbable at the Rebel Stakes. Omaha Beach, who beat Game Winner, also moved up the rankings.

“What you think you might know in February all changes in March,” said Joe Kristufek, racing analyst for Churchill Downs. “Prior to their fantastic performances in the Rebel, Long Range Toddy and Omaha Beach were barely on the radar. Now they’re impossible to ignore.”
