What a difference a couple of days makes. Just a few days ago it looked as if the $1 million Louisiana Derby would feature a field of only five or six horses. Today, thirteen three-year-old colts entered what will be the richest race ever run in the state of Louisiana. Mucho Macho Man, winner of the Grade 2 Risen Star on February 19th, leads the field as the 9/5 morning line favorite.
Entries and post positions are below and I'll have a more in-depth preview of the race later on this week.
