Kentucky Derby: Who's hot, who's not for March 2

Destin wins the Sam F. Davis at Tampa Bay Downs. He is 30-1 on DRF's Kentucky Derby line.

WHO’S HOT

By his own admission, trainer Todd Pletcher thought his 2-year-old males of last year were going to be slow to develop, and he’s had just one runner, Zulu, on Derby Watch since the top 20 first came out last month. That number just tripled. Destin, the Sam F. Davis Stakes winner, and Rally Cry, set to run Saturday in the Gotham Stakes at Aqueduct, both were added this week when two spots became available. Destin is 30-1 on the Kentucky Derby future line set by Mike Watchmaker, Daily Racing Form’s national handicapper. Rally Cry is 50-1. Zulu, second last week to Derby favorite Mohaymen in the Fountain of Youth, is down to 15-1 after being 20-1 a week ago, making him the co-sixth choice with Gun Runner and Mo Tom.

WHO’S NOT

Awesome Banner and Awesome Speed were not very awesome in the Fountain of Youth and were dropped from the list.

ON THE BUBBLE

Fellowship, third in the Holy Bull and Fountain of Youth, continues to knock on the door. Adventist, third in the Withers last time out in only his second start, could move onto the list with a big showing in the Gotham.
