2011 Kentucky Oaks & Derby | May 6 and 7, 2011 | Tickets, Events, News

Written By Rana G on Thursday, May 5, 2011 | 11:15 AM

The 2011 Kentucky Derby will be held on May 7, with a post time of 6:24 p.m. Here are all 20 post positions for this year's race.

No. 1: Archarcharch (Jon Court)

Archarcharch is in a tough spot on the rail. It can easily be boxed in, ruining its chances of winning.

No. 2: Brilliant Speed (Joel Rosario)

Rosario will be making his second appearance in the Derby after finishing fourth a year ago with Make Music for Me.

No. 3: Twice The Appeal (Calvin Borel)

Borel might be the most well-known jockey in the sport. He has been a part of two straight Derby wins and three of four overall. He doesn't have a great horse this year and another win would be a surprise.

No. 4: Stay Thirsty (Ramon Dominguez)

With 20-1 odds, Stay Thirsty having the fourth position doesn't help or hurt. Much like Twice The Appeal, a win would be a surprise.

No. 5: Decisive Moment (Kerwin Clark)

This is another horse that is just here hoping to pull off the upset. Clark is a veteran jockey, but will be making his first Derby appearance.

No. 6: Comma to the Top (Patrick Valenzuela)

This horse won two races in late 2010 and has an experienced jockey. Valenzuela won two legs of the Triple Crown in 1989.

No. 7: Pants on Fire (Anna Napravnik)

Napravnik become a known commodity in 2005 and will race in her first Kentucky Derby. The horse won the Louisiana Derby in March but is still at 20-1 odds.

No. 8: Dialed In (Julien Leparoux)

The odds on favorite is in a great position in the eight spot. At 4-1 odds, this Nick Zito trained horse is looking to win it all.

No. 9: Derby Kitten (Javier Castellano)

Derby Kitten is the first of four straight long shots in the race.

No. 10: Twinspired (Mike Smith)

Smith won the 2005 Derby, but doesn't have as talented a horse as he did then (Giacomo).

No. 11: Master Of Hounds (Garrett Gomez)

Gomez has appeared in nine Derby's but has not finished higher than second.

No. 12: Santiva (Shaun Bridgmohan)

This Jamaican jockey has experience, but Santiva was last seen finishing ninth at the Toyota Blue Grass in April.

No. 13: Mucho Macho Man (Rajiv Maragh)

Maragh is a son of a jockey and could have a long career. The horse is at 12-1 odds and finished third at the Louisiana Derby in March. This is a good post for him to make a move.

No. 14: Shackleford (Jesus Castanon)

Castanon is making his Derby debut and has won numerous races over his career. This post is one that could work well for the horse with 12-1 odds.

No. 15: Midnight Interlude (Victor Espinoza)

The horse won it's only race of the year at the Santa Anita Derby and has a favorable post position to move towards the front.

No. 16: Animal Kingdom (Robby Albarado)

This veteran has won over 4,200 races in his career, but his horse is a long shot to win.

No. 17: Soldat (Alan Garcia)

Garcia is a third generation jockey making his second Derby appearance. At 12-1 odds, Garcia has a chance to win the big race.

*No. 18: Uncle Mo (John Velasquez)

It was announced on May 6 that Uncle Mo will not run in the Derby.

No. 19: Nehro (Corey Nakatani)

At 6-1, this horse also has the speed to get where it needs to go and will give Uncle Mo and Dialed In a run for their money.

No. 20: Watch Me Go (Rafael Bejarano)

The Peruvian will be making his Derby debut on who finished sixth in its last race in April.
