Kentucky Derby odds continue to evolve with the prep race circuit in full swing! Next up is the San Felipe Stakes, where FanDuel Racing will hang odds Sunday at Santa Anita. The San Felipe is the next 50-point prep race on the circuit this year. That means a qualifying berth in the 150th Run for the Roses on May 4 likely awaits the winner, except three of the five horses in this race are Bob Baffert horses. Baffert horses cannot earn Derby points due to his Churchill Downs suspension.

2024 San Felipe Stakes Morning Line Odds

The last winner of the San Felipe Stakes to win the Kentucky Derby came in 2014 with California Chrome. Since then, a handful of colts from each field participate in the Run For The Roses, although winners recently rarely correlate. Note: Bob Baffert-trained horses are NOT eligible to earn Derby points.

With only five horses in the 1 1/16-mile dirt race, and Churchill Downs awarding 50-25-15-10-5, the two non-Baffert horses (Scatify and Mc Vay) are guaranteed to get some Derby points even if they come in last place. If that sounds silly to you, well you’d be correct.

1. Scatify

Scatify is a lightly-run horse with just two races under his belt. In the Robert B. Lewis, Scatify ran out front with Wine Me Up, setting a fast pace early. However, he was overtaken by Nysos down the stretch. Ultimately, Scatify was nudged out by Wine Me Up and finished third in the race. In another Maiden special weight run back in December, Scatify took a narrow victory in 6 furloughs.

2. Wine Me Up

With just one win under his belt, Wine Me Up has often been the bridesmaid, never the bride. Wine Me Up finished second in both the American Pharoah and Robert B. Lewis, although he set the pace at the latter race. He likes to set a heavy pace at first but faded down the stretch more than once, ultimately leading to a decisive loss to Nysos in the Robert B. Lewis.

Wine Me Up also faltered in two races as a two-year-old – the Breeder’s Cup Juvenile (G1) and Los Alamitos Futurity (G2) – finishing fourth and eighth, respectively.

3. Nysos

The Baffert-trained three-year-old colt is off to a hot start. Nysos is undefeated in three starts, winning every race in a decisive manner. If Nysos was under the management of another trainer, he would likely be a favorite in the Kentucky Derby futures pool – a crown that would likely stick until race day. He took down three of the other four horses in this field (sans Imagination) in the Robert B. Lewis early in February.

Nysos went off as a laughable 1/9 favorite, keeping three lengths to the lead for a majority of the run. Heading into the second turn, he kicked it into gear, easily overtaking the leaders and cruised to a seven-length victory.

4. Mc Vay

Mc Vay is 0-1-0 in three career races, finishing a 6-furlong MSW race in seventh and another 6 1/2-furlong MSW race in second. He also placed a distant fourth in the Robert B. Lewis behind the three other horses in this field. Expect Mc Vay to go off as a long underdog in San Felipe Stakes odds.

5. Imagination

The third Bob Baffert-trained horse in the field, Imagination is 1-3-0 in four races. However, this is the first graded stakes event he’s run in. Imagination ultimately took advantage of light fields and cruised to runner-up finishes despite sub-par runs. He should go off as the longest shot in this small field.
