The Derby 20 Presented By Adequan: Missteps And Upsetters

War of Will in the paddock before the Louisiana Derby

That was certainly a strange weekend of horse racing. Longshots hit in graded stakes all across the country, including 22-1 By My Standards in the Louisiana Derby. Neither of the weekend's Kentucky Derby prep races saw a winning favorite; 4-5 War of Will finished ninth at the Fair Grounds, while Mucho Gusto faded to third in the Sunland Derby.

War of Will took an awkward step behind several strides out of the gate and was sore after the race. He may move back up the list as trainer Mark Casse reports on the colt's recovery, but for now I dropped him from first to 12th.

The top two finishers from the Louisiana and Sunland Derbies — Cutting Humor, Anothertwistafate, By My Standards, and Spinoff — make their debuts in this week's Derby 20 list, while beaten favorite Mucho Gusto dropped off entirely. Where did your favorite horse end up on the list? Be sure to click on the expandable boxes for each Derby candidate to get all the latest information — in our second edition of The Derby 20!
