Kentucky Derby Media Poll Week 7

Update: The latest Kentucky Derby media poll Week 7 has new favorites. This week’s top Kentucky Derby favorites Roadster, Improbable, and Game Winner.

After another weekend of Kentucky Derby Prep Races, there is a shakeup in this week’s Kentucky Derby media poll.

Last week’s favorite, Game Winner, finished second at the Santa Anita Derby and dropped to third place. Win Win Win, was unranked last week but moved into 10th place this week after finishing second at the Blue Grass Stakes, while Bourbon War dropped from 10th to 18th.

The big winner this week is Bob Baffert, who has the top three horses in this week’s media poll.

“Baffert, already a five-time winner, could have the strongest contingent of Derby contenders he’s ever had in one year,” said the Southern California News Group’s Art Wilson.

“Well, I’m sure of one thing after the weekend: Bob Baffert is likely to win the Kentucky Derby again,” added SportsLine’s Jody Demling. “Just not sure which of the three it will be.”

Despite Baffert having the top three horses in the poll, experts expect a very competitive field this year.

“With less than four weeks remaining until the first Saturday in May, this is one of the most competitive Derby fields to date,” said Churchill Downs’ Kevin Kerstein. “There have been 39 different winners on the Road to the Kentucky Derby through 43 races.”
