The prep schedule for the 2018 Kentucky Derby has come to a close, and after last week’s results, Justify remains the 4/1 favorite for this year’s big race on May 5. But he’s got plenty of company at the top of the horse racing futures market. The latest contender to state his case: Magnum Moon (8/1), who took down the Grade 1 Arkansas Derby on Saturday. The Todd Pletcher-trained colt heads into Churchill Downs as the No. 1 horse on the 2018 Road to the Kentucky Derby standings.

Despite Magnum Moon’s undefeated 4-0 record, including the G2 Rebel Stakes in March, the relative lack of competition at Oaklawn Park is enough to leave him fourth on the Kentucky Derby odds list. Justify, also undefeated at 3-0, put away former Derby favorite Bolt d’Oro (now 10/1) by three lengths earlier this month at the G1 Santa Anita Derby.
Among the other top favorites with victories on the Road to the Kentucky Derby: Mendelssohn (9/2), who won the G2 UAE Derby, Audible (11/2), who prevailed at the G1 Florida Derby, and Vino Rosso (16/1), making his debut on the odds board after taking down the G2 Wood Memorial.
