Kentucky Derby post positions: California Chrome breaks 6th

Nineteen horses will be in the starting gate on the first Saturday in May to compete in “greatest two minutes in sports,” whittled down from a foal crop of more than 23,000. Here the America’s Best Racing Brand Ambassadors give you a quick rundown or “cheat sheet” of the Derby entrants to help you decide who to root for.

This list is organized in post-position order– not saddle cloths — with morning-line odds in parentheses. There will be no horse wearing sadlde cloth 11. With Pablo Del Monte being withdrawn Friday from the event, post position No. 1 will be empty, with the 19 remaining entrants breaking from posts 2-20.
