”At least we’re in a position where we have a good chance of winning. If I got the one-hole I would be thinking they just don’t want me to win this Derby. After Lookin At Lucky, when he got the one-hole, the excitement just left me because I knew he had too much to overcome.”

— Bob Baffert, trainer of Kentucky Derby morning line favorite Virginia-bred Bodemeister.
