Nine three year olds have entered Saturday's Indiana Derby, including Preakness and Haskell winner Lookin At Lucky, the 5/2 morning line favorite. 

I was surprised to see Lookin At Lucky pegged at 5/2 on the morning line...that number seems really high to me.  I'd be pretty surprised if he's above even money when this race goes to post, even with the time he missed from training.  None of the other horses are nearly as accomplished as Lucky and he's been almost untouchable at a mile and a sixteenth (4-3-1-0), with a head defeat in the Juvenile after an awful trip his only blemish at the distance.  If he's only 80% of what he was in the Haskell he should win by daylight.
