Kentucky Derby Media Poll Week 2

The first Kentucky Derby media poll was released last week with Game Winner coming in as the top ranked horse. Every week leading up to the 2019 Kentucky Derby, the list will be updated to reflect what is going on in the Kentucky Derby prep races. Next, updated Kentucky Derby predictions.

This week, the top three horses on the list remain unchanged, but there are a few new contenders on the list, one of which is Code of Honor, who was unranked last week and jumped into fourth place this week thanks to his performance at the Fountain of Youth Stakes.

Bob Baffert trained Roadstar also made his debut in the media poll this week after winning at Santa Anita Park on Friday.

“Apparently now it’s never too late,” quipped XBTV’s Zoe Cadman, with Triple Crown winner Justify having similarly earned his way into a final Derby prep last year. “Roadster leapfrogged many others with his facile win at Santa Anita.”
