Trainer Bob Baffert will be looking to make history this weekend as he saddles three horses in search of a record-equaling sixth Kentucky Derby win.
One of the 66-year-old’s horses, Game Winner, is the 9-2 favorite for Saturday's 145th running at Churchill Downs.
Winner originally opened Tuesday as the 5-1 second choice behind Omaha Beach, who has now been scratched from the running because of a breathing problem.
Baffert's two other pupils, Roadster and Improbable, are 5-1 co-second choices that give the Hall of Fame trainer additional chances to win a sixth Derby and tie Ben Jones' record.

‘Game Winner was a champion two-year-old, but I don't know how the weather is going to affect him - he comes from off the pace and might have some traffic problems.
‘I love Roadster, but he's got to prove something, he's lightly raced; and Improbable, if he doesn't get too excited - they have to handle crowds - the way he's been training he loves this track but he needs to break [out of the stalls].
‘One day I like one and then I'll change my mind. I think Improbable, we don't know if he'll get the mile-and-a-quarter - but that Game Winner he's tough. I don't
