The May 18 race is set to run 13 horses with early favorite Improbable, a horse with the same trainer, jockey and owner as 2018 Triple Crown winner Justify, leading the field. Hall of Fame jockey Mike Smith joined the Improbable team after riding 30-1 Cutting Humor to 10th in the Derby.

Four horses ran in the Kentucky Derby: Improbable (4th), War of Will (7th), Win Win Win (9th) and Bodexpress (13th).
