Kentucky Derby 2016 Post Position Draw

HRS Kentucky Derby




Earlier today was the Kentucky Derby Draw.  Favorite Nyquist drew the 13 hole, right inside of rival Mohaymen.  The main speed, Danzing Candy drew the far outside, and the other speed, Outwork, drew the 15 post.  Most of the closers drew to the inside, except for Brody’s Cause who drew the 19 post.  Maiden Trojan Nation ended up with the dreaded rail and Mor Spirit drew post 17.

Check out my full analysis of every contender and the weekend’s races here.
