Panadol will not be participating in this year's Kentucky Derby.  The UAE Derby runner-up's absense ensures there will be no foreign-born horses in the 2021 race.  Early Kentucky Derby odds can be found here.

Panadol had earlier been given a 70% shot of taking part but trainer Salem Bin Ghadayer opted not to have the horse travel to the States at this time. 

Rombauer was also expected to bow out of this year's Derby.

"Preakness and then Belmont is our plan if the Racing Gods cooperate and he stays healthy," co-owner John Fradkin tweeted.

Owner John Ed Anthony has expressed concerns over running Caddo River while trainer Bob Baffert wants to evaluate Concert Tour 's training before committing him to the classic.

Concert Tour was among the early favorites at 6-1 odds.

Blue Grass Stakes winner Essential Quality will enter this year's Kentucky Derby as the odds-on favorite at +250.
