Post positions, odds and analysis


The 2023 Pennsylvania Derby, to be run Saturday at Parx Racing, features a large group of contenders with one final chance to have a breakthrough victory in the 3-year-old division, while securing a path to the Breeders’ Cup at Santa Anita in November.

Many of the country’s top trainers will have runners in the starting gate at the Bensalem, Pennsylvania racetrack for the $1 million, Grade 1 event.

Heading the group is West Coast conditioner Bob Baffert, who won the race last year with Taiba, who went on to finish third in the Breeders’ Cup Classic before winning the Grade 1 Malibu Stakes.
