15. Always Dreaming

Derby Points/Rank: 0 – NR

Race Record: (3) 1-1-1

Earnings: $35,900

Breeding: Bodemeister – Above Perfection

Owner: MeB Racing Stables LLC and Viola Racing

Trainer: Todd Pletcher

Last Race:  Maiden Special Weight at Tampa Bay Downs, Finished 1st

Analysis: I must be crazy for ranking a Pletcher maiden winner on this list…a maiden winner at Tampa Bay no less!  However, he’s been able to use Tampa Bay as a path to the Kentucky Derby before with Outwork being the most recent example.  This horse showed major talent when winning last time out, which was also his first race for Pletcher.  I’m intrigued…
