LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Florida Derby runner-up Pleasant Prince is
the early 3-1 favorite for Saturday's $750,000 Blue Grass Stakes at

Park three weeks ago, a race Pleasant Prince owner Ken Ramsey says
he still can't believe his horse lost.
Pleasant Prince will start from post six and be ridden by Julien
Leparoux for the 1 1-8-mile race over the Polytrack, one of the
final preps for next month's Kentucky Derby.
Tampa Bay Derby winner Odysseus will start from the rail and is
the second choice in the nine-horse field at 7-2.
Stablemates Aikenite and Interactif, both trained by Todd
Pletcher, are co-third choices at 4-1 and will start alongside each
other on the outside.
