Nyquist made 3-1 favorite from post 13 in Kentucky Derby

The field is set for the 142nd running of the Kentucky Derby (G1), and undefeated juvenile champion Nyquist has been installed as the 3-1 morning line favorite against 19 rivals. Click the link to see the field in post order with the morning line odds.

Vance Hanson provides a quick recap of the Derby post draw, noting closers drew the inside stalls while primary speed Danzing Candy will have to gun from post 20.

Doug Salvatore presents Part 2 of his Kentucky Derby profiles, while Ron Flatter goes Down Under to see how Australians view and bet on the Kentucky Derby...on their Sunday morning.

John Mucciolo reviews the opening three days of Belmont Park's spring/summer meet.

Rachel's Valentina early favorite in 142nd Kentucky Oaks

The field for the 142nd running of the $1 million Kentucky Oaks (G1) was drawn Tuesday morning at Churchill Downs, with Rachel's Valentina installed as the morning line favorite at 7-2. She'll face 13 others in Friday's 1 1/8-mile test.

Also drawn was the Oaks Day undercard, which features five other graded stakes. The biggest is the $300,000 La Troienne (G1) for fillies and mares, featuring multiple Grade 1 winners Sheer Drama and Curalina.

On the Kentucky Derby (G1) front, Japanese invader Lani recorded a five-furlong work Tuesday morning, while Danzing Candy and Trojan Nation hit the track for the first time since their arrival from California. James Scully has thoughts on the morning's activities and the Oaks draw as well.

Ed DeRosa writes of his surprise run-in with former President Bill Clinton, who has his Derby pick ready and fondly recalls his days of going racing at Oaklawn Park in his native Arkansas.

Doug Salvatore returns to the TwinSpires.com blog stable with Part 1 of his Kentucky Derby profiles, while Kellie Reilly explores the pedigrees of Derby candidates Majesto and My Man Sam.

John Mucciolo reviews the final week of the Los Alamitos spring meet.

Gun Runner, Creator, Mor Spirit turn in final pre-Derby drills

Trainer Steve Asmussen sent out his Kentucky Derby duo of Gun Runner and Creator for half-mile moves at Churchill Downs Monday, capping their major preparations for Saturday's big race. Also working out was Mo Spirit, who went faster than jockey Gary Stevens realized.

James Scully later talked to prominent clocker Gary Young to get his impression on Monday's activity.

Meanwhile, Derby favorite Nyquist jogged twice around the Churchill oval, Kiaran McLaughlin discussed former Derby favorite Mohaymen's chances for Saturday, and Kentucky Oaks (G1) candidate Carina Mia and others worked out for Friday's Run for the Lilies.

Vance Hanson writes about Outwork, who didn't have a stellar prep in the Wood Memorial (G1) but nonetheless looks like a solid Derby contender.

Remember to check out the TwinSpires YouTube channel for Derby work videos and commentary as well as the blog for a compilation of pedigree profiles.

In other racing news, trainer Wesley Ward could dominate Thursday's $100,000 Kentucky Juvenile at Churchill Downs with a trio of fillies that broke their maiden at Keeneland last month, and Angela Hermann can blaze a trail after being hired as Golden Gate Fields' new announcer.

Dear Readers,

There have been significant changes to the Handicapper's Edge and Bloodstock Journal newsletters. These changes are meant to produce more analytical content for our readers as well as handicappers who use the information in the newsletters.

Nearly everything has been migrated over to the TwinSpires.com Blog section on TwinSpires.com, including Dick Powell's Handicapping Insights and John Mucciolo's Notebooks. These features are still available, and for free like everything in the newsletters, but are just located in a different place now.

If you have any questions or comments on the new format, please feel free to contact us. Thank you for following the Edge and Journal.
