Power Rankings

The Power Rankings feature teams’ odds to win the Triple Crown Fantasy League, as well as an update on every horse on each team. Here we go:

1. Geist (4/5) 

  • Muth – He won the Arkansas Derby (G1) impressively and is pointing to the Preakness Stakes (G1).
  • Air of Defiance – This solid maiden winner has not worked since November 3.
  • Stronghold – He ran decent but couldn’t make an impact in the Kentucky Derby (G1).
  • Dimatic – This horse closed out the Oaklawn meet with an allowance victory.
  • Mystik Dan – BOOM! He held on to win the Kentucky Derby (G1), making this team a strong favorite to win the league.

2. Kelby/Evil Steveil (8/5)

  • Fierceness – He did little running in the Kentucky Derby (G1) as the favorite.
  • Catching Freedom – He finished well to run fourth in the Kentucky Derby (G1).
  • Hall of Fame – He did very little running in the Louisiana Derby (G2).
  • Snead – This horse was a solid second in the Gun Runner Stakes at Fair Grounds but has trouble staying on the work tab.
  • Just Steel – He was up on the pace but faded in the Kentucky Derby (G1). He’s reportedly heading to the Preakness Stakes next.

3. Actual Double Ds (Paul “Free Bears” Withrow) (5/1) 

  • Knightsbridge – This solid debut winner was equally impressive against Gulfstream Park allowance horses. Stakes company should be next.
  • Track Phantom – He set the pace but faded in the Kentucky Derby (G1).
  • Forever Young – He was a heartbreaking third in the Kentucky Derby (G1).
  • Endlessly – He finished in the middle of the pack in the Kentucky Derby (G1).
  • Otello – He was a total no-show in the Jeff Ruby Steaks (G3).

4. Jared Welch (15/1)

  • Conquest Warrior – He was a complete disappointment in the Florida Derby (G1), finishing fourth.
  • Coach Prime – We haven’t seen him since finishing third in December’s Los Alamitos Futurity (G2).
  • Timberlake – The Rebel Stakes (G2) winner was fourth in the Arkansas Derby (G1) and is now missing.
  • Imagination – He was right there with a chance but couldn’t win the Santa Anita Derby (G1). We’ll see him next in the Preakness Stakes (G1).
  • Mindframe – The newest member of the team dazzled with a nice allowance win at Churchill Downs. Stakes action should be next.

5. Dan Waite and Michael Ossen (20/1)

  • Sierra Leone – He was just a touch too late & finished second in the Kentucky Derby (G1).
  • Book’em Danno – He ran huge in the Saudi Derby (G3) to finish second behind Forever Young but is now missing.
  • Bergen – He did little running in a recent stakes race.
  • Rocketeer – He failed to win a Keeneland allowance in his 3-year-old debut.
  • Maymun – He missed his scheduled start in the Santa Anita Derby (G1). Someone get the milk carton…he’s missing.

6. Vinny Blond (20/1)

7. The Magic Mike Show (50/1) 

  • Parchment Party – He’s out until God knows when with a minor issue.
  • Honor Marie – He had an awful trip in the Kentucky Derby (G1) to finish eighth.
  • Encino – He’s injured and will miss the rest of the Triple Crown season.
  • Tuscan Gold – He’s heading to the Preakness Stakes (G1) after a third-place effort in the Louisiana Derby (G2).
  • First World War – He did very little running in a recent turf race at Keeneland.

8. Double Ds (Doc Tang and Doc Miranda) (50/1)

  • Nysos – The Robert B. Lewis Stakes (G3) winner scratched out of the San Felipe Stakes (G2) and will likely miss the Triple Crown trail.
  • The Wine Steward – He was a nice second in the Lexington Stakes (G3).
  • Carbone – He was recently second in the Hot Springs Stakes.
  • Moonlight – He moved back to turf and still lost.
  • Amante Bianco – He could do no better than second in a recent race in Japan.

9. Shotty and Davey (50/1)

  • Common Defense – The newest member of the team couldn’t hit the board in the Louisiana Derby (G2).
  • Liberal Arts – He did little running in all three of his 2024 starts.
  • Otto the Conqueror – He sucks.
  • Deterministic – He did nothing in the Wood Memorial Stakes (G2).
  • Real Men Violin – He also sucks.

10. Jon White and Ryan Stillman (50/1) 

  • Nash – He ran well but could do no better than second in the Pat Day Mile Stakes (G2).
  • Tuscan Sky – He did little running in the Wood Memorial Stakes (G2).
  • Hades – He did very little running in the Lexington Stakes (G3).
  • Victory Avenue – He’s off the trail after struggling to stay healthy.
  • Born Noble – No works since March 1 means this horse probably has some issues.

11. Aaron Halterman (69/1)

  • Speak Easy – LOL…is missing again.
  • Merit – LOL…
  • Antiquarian – He broke through the gate in the Louisiana Derby (G2) before running sixth. And yet he’s still easily the best horse on this team. We’ll see him this weekend in the Peter Pan Stakes (G3).
  • Wynstock – LOL… at least he participated in the Santa Anita Derby (G1)?
  • Who Dey – He ran ok but could not hit the board in the Pat Day Mile (G2).
