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:

( Content Continues Below Ad )

1. Mike “Saratoga Slim” Spector (4/1)

  • Speaker’s Corner – This Bill Mott trainee looked great last time out, beating two horses who have since won impressively. He’s going to get going late in the game, but at least he’s back working out. 
  • Caddo River – The Brad Cox trainee looked like the real deal with an absolute romp at Oaklawn Park in the Smarty Jones Stakes
  • Savile Row – He impressed in his debut at Del Mar on 11/8; however, he hasn’t been on the work tab sinc. 
  • Risk Taking – This late-round draft pick paid off with a big win in the Withers Stakes (G3)
  • Candy Man Rocket – The newest member of the team won the Sam F. Davis Stakes (G3) in impressive fashion. 

2. The Killer Bs (9/2)

  • Mandaloun – This team now looks solid after a big win from this horse in the Risen Star Stakes (G3).
  • The Great One – This horse looked like a monster breaking his maiden at Santa Anita and could be developing at the perfect time.
  • Reinvestment Risk – He wasn’t nominated for the Triple Crown and is missing from the work tab. 
  • Lemon Pop – This Japanese runner turned heads with a solid win in the Cattleya last time out at Tokyo Racecourse. 
  • Golden Pal – This TURF SPRINTER was drafted in a Kentucky Derby Fantasy League. Good luck figuring this one out…

3. Paul “Free Beers” Withrow (5/1)

  • Brooklyn Strong – The Remsen Stakes (G2) winner is still missing from the work tab. Did the Remsen Curse strike again?
  • Prate – This Brad Cox trainee looked like the real deal in his debut score at Fair Grounds but will be kept sprinting for the time being. 
  • Medina Spirit – He went fast early and kept on going in the Robert B. Lewis Stakes (G3), picking up a big win for this team. 
  • Triple Tap – This unraced colt by Tapit has put in some solid recent works at Santa Anita, but when and where will he finally debut?  
  • Prevalence – The team won a massive 9-way shake to pick up this impressive debut winner. It looks like he’ll run in the Fountain of Youth Stakes (G2) next. 

4. Jon White/Ryan Stillman (5/1) 

  • Life Is Good – The number one overall pick in the draft earned a solid 101 Beyer Speed Figure for winning the Sham Stakes (G3)
  • Roman Centurian – This recent claim could be on the rise after a solid runner-up finish in the Robert B. Lewis Stakes (G3)
  • Fire At Will – This team takes a chance on the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf (G1) winner, who will give dirt a try next time in the Fountain of Youth Stakes (G2).
  • Concert Tour – He rose quickly up the ranks after a solid victory in the San Vicente Stakes (G2) and is headed to the Rebel Stakes (G2).
  • Dream Shake – This recent claim was super impressive on debut, beating a stout maiden special weight field at Santa Anita.

5. Real Dynasty (6/1)

  • Keepmeinmind – The Kentucky Jockey Club (G2) winner should be a consistent points-earner this season. If they ever run the Southwest Stakes (G3), he’ll be in it. 
  • Ten for Ten – He wasn’t nominated for the Triple Crown. Not good.
  • Olympiad – This Saratoga maiden winner hasn’t worked since 1/19. Not great.
  • Ethical Judgement – He had a solid maiden-breaking score at Keeneland in October but only returned to the work tab on February 6.
  • Proxy – This guy has proven to be very valuable, finishing second once again in the Risen Star Stakes (G2)

6. Austin Elsey/Steve “Evil Steveil” Ronchetto (8/1) 

  • Classier – This Bob Baffert trainee was impressive on debut but hasn’t worked since 11/28. 
  • Spielberg – He sucked pretty badly in the Robert B. Lewis Stakes (G3).
  • Freedom Fighter – He ran huge to finish a close second in the San Vicente Stakes (G2). The Gotham Stakes (G3) is next. 
  • Greatest Honour – The newest member of the team won the Holy Bull Stakes (G3) impressively.
  • Manor House – He was beyond bad in a Fair Grounds allowance in his last start. 

7. Jared Welch (10/1) 

  • Highly Motivated – Incredibly, this horse fell to #8 in the draft, giving this team a major gift. We’ll seem him in a few weeks in the Gotham Stakes (G3).
  • Hot Rod Charlie – His 3-year-old debut was solid, finishing a close third in the Robert B. Lewis Stakes (G3). He’ll run next in the Louisiana Derby (G2).
  • Ghazaaly – This Pletcher colt finally debuted, finishing a promising third in an ultra-tough maiden special weight.  
  • Donegal Bay – His Withers Stakes (G3) effort was a total disaster. 
  • Class Reunion – The filly was a tough luck fourth in her debut at Santa Anita and is now at Oaklawn Park with a new trainer.

8. Aaron Halterman (10/1)

  • Senor Buscador – His disappointing fifth-place effort in the Risen Star Stakes (G2) was a big blow to this team. 
  • Jackie’s Warrior – He disappointed in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile (G1); however, this horse looked like a monster for most of his 2-year-old season. We’ll see him in the Southwest Stakes (G3) – if they ever run it.
  • Parnelli – He sucks and needs to be dropped, simple as that. However, he’s the only horse to earn this team any points so far.   
  • Whiskey Double – He’ll also need to be dropped after back-to-back poor efforts in allowance races. 
  • Rombauer – He picked up a big win for this team in the El Camino Real Derby at Golden Gate.

9. Dan Waite and Michael Myers (12/1) 

  • Essential Quality – A major bright spot for the team, the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile (G1) winner should have a strong 2021 campaign. However, the Southwest Stakes (G3) has been delayed once again. 
  • Smiley Sobotka – LOL… you tell a guy not claim someone and he doesn’t listen… we expected this sort of thing to change when the team doubled in size.
  • Team Merchants – The Nyquist colt was impressive when breaking his maiden at Saratoga but hasn’t been on the work tab since. 
  • Wolfie’s Dynaghost – He broke his maiden impressively on debut at Aqueduct on 11/14 but hasn’t worked since. 
  • Drain the Clock – This team hopes their newest claim pays off immediately in the Fountain of Youth Stakes (G2). 

10. The Magic Mike Show (20/1) 

  • Prime Factor – Uh oh… Magic Mike is in trouble after this horse finished a flat third in the Holy Bull Stakes (G3).
  • Easy Time – He switched to turf and nearly won last time out against allowance company. 
  • Starrininmydreams – The newest member of the team sucked in the Risen Star Stakes (G2).
  • Regular Guy – Back-to-back seventh-place finishes… not good. 
  • Midnight Bourbon – This horse is going to be valuable to the team after another strong showing, finishing third in the Risen Star Stakes (G2).
