What stands out most here is that Justify drew the rail.  He's still coming in at 4-1 odds.

While it's true that this post position has produced the most winners at 23, that vast majority of those came at a time when fewer horses competed.

In the last 20 years, every post from one through 13 has at least one winner except No. 10.  Blended Citizen at 18-1 odds will start from here.
