Game Winner 2019 Kentucky Derby Contender Profile

Game Winner has been the early favored or co-favorite for the Kentucky Derby (G1) since last fall after completing an undefeated juvenile period. Despite going 0-for-2 this season, the colt remains the co-favorite at Bovada in Kentucky Derby wagering in +500 together with his stablemate Roadster.
The colt was perfect in four starts in 2018. After breaking his maiden in his introduction, he reeled off three Grade 1 wins, taking American Pharoah the Del Mar Futurity and the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile.
The colt won the Eclipse Award for outstanding juvenile and December was a solid early favorite in Bovada.
After a 4 1/2-month break, the colt returned in the Rebel (G2) at Oaklawn Park, which was divided into two branches. The initial plan was to remain at Santa Anita and operate in the San Felipe (G2), but that race has been canceled when racing was halted for three weeks because of an inspection of the racing surface after 22 equine deaths at the meeting.
Baffert had won the Rebel six occasions and the colt was sent off as the heavy favorite, but came up a nose short, beaten by Omaha Beach, who had been making his stakes debut after breaking his maiden in his fifth career start.
Up for Game Winner was his final prep for Louisville and the colt was sent off as the short-priced favored in the Arkansas Derby (G1) but came up a half-length brief, defeated by his stablemate Roadster.
The colt went out of a powerful early favorite for the Run for the Roses to co-favorite, and it is currently tough to distinguish the top four in the early betting, three of which are trained by Baffert.
