Under jockey Victor Espinoza, the Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner continued on strongly, caught in 59.93 for 5 furlongs, galloping out in 1:12.95 and credited with a double gallop-out in 1:26.28 over a fast track by New York Racing Association clockers.

Dynamic Impact's connections weren't sure what they had entering the April 19 Illinois Derby. The colt had flashed plenty of talent, but his performance in the afternoon never seemed to match his workouts in the morning. Facing the best competition of his life and starting from the No. 1 post, Dynamic Impact changed the narrative with a victory that surprised even his trainers. Four weeks later, he's a 12-1 fifth choice in the morning line at the Preakness. Is he simply a late bloomer?

Bob Baffert , the Hall of Fame trainer of Preakness entry Bayern, hopes his horse has more luck in Baltimore than Bodemeister did at Pimlico two years ago. After winning the Arkansas Derby that year, Bodemeister finished second in both the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness. After Bayern won in Arkansas last month, Baffert decided to have him race in the 1-mile Derby trial rather than the 1 ¼-mile Derby. Bayern - named after soccer power Bayern Munich, the favorite club of the horse's owner Kaleem Shah - finished first in the Derby trial with Rosie Napravnik aboard, but he was later disqualified for interference and given second.
