Power Rankings

The “Power Rankings” feature teams’ odds to win the contest, as well as an update on every horse on a team. Here we go:

1. Paul “Free Beers” Withrow (2/1)

  • Thousand Words – His Oaklawn Stakes was a total disaster, putting his future in question. 
  • Cezanne – The $3.65 million purchase is nearing a debut for trainer Bob Baffert after several solid works; the only question is where. It appears he’s getting close to a race.
  • Nadal – His Arkansas Derby (G1) win was ultra-impressive and vaulted this team to the top of the Power Rankings.  
  • Necker Island – We can officially (we had already anyway) say he’s not very good after a poor effort in the Unbridled Stakes.  
  • Caracaro – This claim earned a 92 Beyer for his impressive maiden special weight score at Gulfstream Park on January 11. However, he has not recorded a work since January 25.

2. The Magic Mike Show (5/2)

  • Tiz the Law – He crushed his rivals once again in the Florida Derby (G1), making him the number-one 3-year-old in the country until the Baffert brigade invaded both Arkansas Derby (G1) winners circles.
  • Modernist – The Risen Star Stakes (G2) winner came back to run a solid third in the Louisiana Derby (G2). He looks like he still has room to grow and was flattered when Mr. Big News, whom he defeated in the Risen Star, won the Oaklawn Stakes.  
  • Dr Post – The recent Magic Mike claim looked good winning the Unbridled Stakes at Gulfstream Park despite a rough trip. 
  • Enforceable – He got a brutal trip in the Louisiana Derby (G2), which saw him miss the board for the first time this season. 
  • Tizamagician – The team mascot earned a career-best 89 Beyer while running a decent fourth in the Robert B. Lewis Stakes (G3). He is slated to return in a mile-long allowance at Santa Anita Park on Sunday.

3. Mike “Saratoga Slim” Spector (4/1)

  • Structor – Originally, Slim’s first-round pick was off of the Kentucky Derby Trail. However, with the Derby now moved to September, he might have a chance! He record his first work in quite a while last weekend.
  • Three Technique – He was decent in the Rebel Stakes (G2); however, he was only able to finish fourth. It’s also been announced that he’ll take some time off and then return to one-turn races. 
  • Charlatan – He picked up another impressive gate-to-wire victory in the Arkansas Derby (G1), dominating from start to finish.
  • Country Grammer – This son of Tonalist showed some signs of life late in the Fountain of Youth Stakes (G2).
  • No Parole – He may not be a Kentucky Derby contender, but he proved that he can beat a great sprinter with a nice allowance win at Oaklawn Park. 

4. Aaron Halterman (6/1)

  • Independence Hall – The #1 overall pick in this year’s draft looks like a flop after an off-the-board finish in the Florida Derby (G1). He’s reportedly sticking to one-turn races for the rest of the year. 
  • Azul Coast – A big win in the El Camino Real Derby gave this team a nice 20-point pickup. He was entered in the Sunland Derby (G3) before that race was canceled. His next start is now unknown, but he continues to work out at Santa Anita Park.
  • Authentic – The San Felipe Stakes (G2) was another solid effort from a colt who might have a serious future. However, is he the third-best Baffert horse? He looks to be pointed toward the Santa Anita Derby (G1).
  • Little Menace – He was nowhere to be found in the Bachelor Stakes, which means he’s likely going to be dropped later in the year. 
  • Pneumatic – This Steve Asmussen runner looks like an up-and-comer who could be ready for a big summer.

5. Real Dynasty (10/1)

  • Green Light Go – He was well-beaten in the Swale Stakes (G3), but it was nice to see him kick off his 2020 campaign. He was scheduled to give it another go in the Fountain of Youth Stakes (G2), but he spiked a fever just days before. He’s back this weekend in the Roar Stakes at Gulfstream Park. 
  • Mr. Monomoy – Unfortunately, this colt suffered a minor injury, but he could be back on the Trail with the Derby moving to September. 
  • Farmington Road – He came running late in the Arkansas Derby (G1); however, he could do no better than a distant fourth.  
  • Silver State – After a consistent year, he struggled to an off-the-board finish in the Louisiana Derby (G2)
  • Sole Volante – He picked up a nice second in the Tampa Bay Derby (G2), showing that he can be consistent on dirt. It’s rumored that he might make his next start on turf.

6. Jon White/Ryan Stillman (10/1)

  • Honor A. P. – He’s back! His runner-up effort in the San Felipe Stakes (G2) was a solid start to his year. He should get better with more fitness and longer distances, which will be put to the test in the Santa Anita Derby (G1).
  • Storm the Court – We can probably close the door on this one being a top 3-year-old after an off the board finish in the Arkansas Derby (G1)
  • Basin – He rebounded from a poor Oaklawn Stakes with a solid runner-up effort to Charlatan in the Arkansas Derby (G1).
  • Chance It – After the Tampa Bay Derby (G2) did not go his way, his connections announced that he will be given some time off, which should have him refreshed for a nice summer campaign. 
  • Great Power – The claiming game has not been kind this year to the defending champs. Great Power disappointed in a recent allowance at Santa Anita Park, finishing third to superstar Charlatan. 

7. Jared Welch (12/1)

  • Maxfield – Look for him to make an impact later in the season after an injury forced him to miss several months. He is now pointing towards the Matt Winn Stakes (G3) on May 23 at Churchill Downs.  
  • Eight Rings – He sucked something fierce in the Bachelor Stakes. The good news is that we’ll never have to see anymore tweets about him. 
  • Toledo – His third-place Holy Bull Stakes (G3) effort was not encouraging, though two really good horses defeated him. He continues to work, but his next start is unknown.
  • Shoplifted – He’s decent, just not top-level. His Oaklawn Stakes effort was merely average.
  • Ete Indien – This horse showed a lot of heart in the Florida Derby (G1) to finish third, despite a lot going wrong in the race. It sounds like he’s pointing toward July’s Haskell Stakes (G1) at Monmouth Park for his next start. 

8. Brandon “B$” Bauer (50/1)

  • Dennis’ Moment – He could not have been worse in the Fountain of Youth Stakes (G2) and hasn’t returned to the worktab since.
  • High Velocity – It was good to see this team get points in the Robert B. Lewis Stakes (G3); however, this horse was far from impressive. He’s also gone missing from the work tab for over a month.  
  • Silver Prospector – He was a no-show once again in the Arkansas Derby (G1).
  • Thunder Code – This maiden was expected to return in March, but he’s yet to get on the worktab in 2020.
  • Major Fed – The newest addition to this team looks to be developing nicely heading into the summer. 

9. Dan “Wise Dan” Waite (50/1)

  • Sonneman – He’s back on the Wise Dan team after getting drafted and then dropped earlier in the year. We’ll see if Dan keeps him a little longer this time. 
  • Gouverneur Morris – After running fourth in the Florida Derby (G1), he came back to run a decent third in the Arkansas Derby (G1)
  • Shotski – He is proving to be just an average horse after a so-so effort in the Fountain of Youth Stakes (G2). His next start is up in the air after the late cancelation of the U.A.E. Derby (G2).
  • Max Player – The newest member of the team was an easy winner of the Withers Stakes (G3) last time out. His next start is also in question after Aqueduct closed.
  • Mystic Guide – This recent maiden special weight winner at Fair Grounds looked like a horse with a big future. He might turn into a much-needed solid claim for a team that has traditionally struggled in that area.

10. Austin Elsey/Steve “Evil Steveil” Ronchetto (50/1)

  • Mischevious Alex – The last-place team turned to this horse as its savior, claiming him after a win in the one-turn Gotham Stakes (G3)
  • Ajaaweed – He came up “dull” in his preparation for the Florida Derby (G1), causing him to scratch from the race. 
  • Answer In – He sucked in a recent Oaklawn allowance race.
  • King Guillermo – This looks to be a good claim after he ran a solid second in the stronger division of the Arkansas Derby (G1)
  • Wells Bayou – He ran off the board in the Arkansas Derby (G1); however, he still has a shot to be a useful horse moving forward.
