Not to be ruled out, Practical Joker has finished among the top 3 in his last five races that include the Blue Grass, Fountain of Youth and Breeders Cup Juvenile.


Owner: Klaravich Stables and William Lawrence

Trainer: Chad Brown

Jockey: Joel Rosario

Record: 6—3-2-1

Earnings: $1,015,800

Sire-dam: Into Mischief-Halo Humor

Fastest Bris speed figure: 99, Blue Grass

Fastest Beyer speed figure: 92, Blue Grass

Last race: Second in Toyota Blue Grass at Keeneland

Why he'll win:

He never runs a bad race and improves every race - that knocking at the door will get you crashing through at some point. Chad Brown has had one of the fastest ascents of any trainer in years, and this could be his next conquest. Has stalking style that has won recent Derbies. He finished well in the Blue Grass to suggest he could handle another eighth-mile.

Why he won’t:

He couldn’t get past a tiring (and previously winless) Irap in the Blue Grass, so we don’t know about wanting to go another eighth-mile. His pedigree might be just short of 1 1/4 miles.


Jockey Joel Rosario won the 2013 Kentucky Derby on Orb. Practical Joke — great name, given his breeding (by Into Mischief and out of Halo Humor) — was a $240,000 Keeneland September yearling.
