Bobby's Kitten is the 3-1 early favorite in the field of 14.

Javier Castellano will ride the Chad Brown-trained bay colt, who drew the fifth post position for the race awarding 170 points toward the Kentucky Derby. The winner earns 100 points, which all but assures a spot in the 140th Run for the Roses.

Bobby's Kitten has three wins and two third place finishes — one of which was in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf at Santa Anita.

Medal Count is the 9-2 second choice and drew the 13th position.   Gala Award will start 14th at 5-1.

Asserting Bear will start from the first post at 15-1.

Saturday’s post time is 5:45pm.
