14. State of Honor
Derby Points/Rank: 62 – 11th
Race Record: (10) 1-4-2
Breeding: To Honor and Serve – State Cup
Owner: Conrad Farms
Trainer: Mark Casse
Last Race: Grade 1 Florida Derby at Gulfstream Park, Finished 2nd
Analysis: No doubt this horse has proven his class, as he’s been beaten by only Tapwrit, McCraken, and Always Dreaming in his last three races. With only one win in ten lifetime starts, I can’t get excited about him winning the Kentucky Derby, but he’s earned the right to run in the race.
