3. Carpe Diem

Carpe Diem (Todd Pletcher, trainer; John Velazquez, jockey). The Blue Grass winner is Pletcher's top contender. The horse previously won the Tampa Bay Derby and brings a 4 for 5 mark to the Derby. His only loss was a runner-up finish in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile. Next start: Kentucky Derby. Odds: 10-1.
