Classic Empire was the initial favorite to win this year’s Kentucky Derby but ultimately saw his odds get much longer the day of the race.  Ultimately he finished 4th.

Before you write off Classic Empire, some would argue he entered the first leg of the Triple Crown not at 100 percent health.  He was also jostled at the start of the Derby and left with a swollen eye.

"Everything about him is perfect. Truthfully, I think he's doing better than ever," said Norman Casse, son and chief assistant to trainer Mark Casse. "All signs show that he's going to run a really good race."

Casse blames Classic Empire’s starting post position at least partially for the loss.

"In a race like the Derby, it's so paramount to have a good position going into the first turn," Casse said. "If you don't, you do things you don't want to do."

A cleaner start and shorter distance, his handlers believe Classic Empire should bounce back nicely.  The muddy track probably didn’t help matters either.

The 3-1 price is a bit of a turnoff however.
