After a long wait, the 146th running of the Kentucky Derby is finally upon us. Things are going in a different order this year, so while Kentucky Derby is traditionally the first leg of the triple crown, this year it will be run second.

While most people will be on Belmont Stakes winner and Kentucky Derby favorite Tiz The Law, there are other horses in the field that should not be counted out of a potential appearance in the winners circle.

Attachment Rate (66/1)
Attachment Rate had a good start to the year, grabbing a second-, third- and fourth-place finish. He has had some success breaking late in races, but with the short 1 1/4 mile track, he will have to time it right so he doesn't run out of gas while also giving himself enough time to catch other horses.

Caraco (25/1)
Also a horse that we have seen sit back and then break late, Caraco has a impressive blood line. He was sired by the same horse that sired 2016 Kentucky Derby Champion Nyquist. At the 2020 Travers Stakes, Caraco went up against Belmont Stakes winner Tiz The Law and finished second behind only him. If he can keep Tiz The Law close, we could see him pull of a shocking upset down the stretch.
