The Derby 20 Presented By Adequan: Rebel Shakeup Puts War Of Will On Top

War of Will, shown winning the Risen Star over Country House

A pair of undefeated colts suffered their first losses in Saturday's dual editions of the G2 Rebel Stakes, and while neither Game Winner nor Improbable was defeated by more than a neck in their first start of 2019, I decided to give top ranking to a different Kentucky Derby contender.

War of Will has done nothing wrong since being transferred to the dirt, and he continues to learn and improve with each effort at the Fair Grounds. He's consistent, he has the pedigree to run all day long, and his combination of speed and his ability to rate is a big advantage heading toward the Run for the Roses.
