Florida Derby 2013: Entries, Post Positions & Odds

Juvenile champ Shanghai Bobby looks to secure a spot in the 2013 Kentucky Derby at Gulfstream Park this Saturday. - Jeff Gross

Shanghai Bobby and Itsmyluckyday are set for a rematch in Saturday's Florida Derby.

The top two finishers from the Holy Bull Stakes, Itsmyuckyday and Shanghai Bobby, lead a field of 10 colts in Saturday's Grade 1 Florida Derby at Gulfstream Park. (Post Time: 6:19 pm Eastern; TV: NBCSN) Breeders' Cup Juvenile winner Shanghai Bobby will be making just his second start since November, while morning line favorite Itsmyluckyday is running in his third race of the season.

Currently, neither Itsmyluckyday or Shanghai Bobby have enough points to feel completely secure in qualifying for a spot in the Kentucky Derby. A top two finish in Saturday's race will likely get both colts into the Derby; a third place finish will put either one on the edge of qualifying, and any finish outside the top 3 would severely compromise the chances of each colt.

Joining the top two in the race is Orb, the impressive winner of the Fountain of Youth Stakes at Gulfstream in late February. Additionally, Merit Man, second in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Sprint last fall, will stretch out to two turns for the first time in his career.

Below are the entries, post position and morning line odds for the Florida Derby:
