Gun Runner wins the Risen Star Stakes at Fair Grounds over Forevamo, who is the newest addition to the Derby Watch top 20.


The lone newcomer to this week’s Derby Watch top 20 is Forevamo, who finished second in the Risen Star Stakes last Saturday at Fair Grounds. He is 30-1 on the Kentucky Derby future line set by Mike Watchmaker, Daily Racing Form’s national handicapper. Gun Runner, the Risen Star winner, and Mo Tom, who finished a troubled third in the race, both have been lowered to 15-1 on Watchmaker’s line after being 20-1 a week ago.
