HOT ROD CHARLIE literally skyrocketed from the bottom of our Kentucky Derby Leaderboard this weekend with his win in the Lousiana Derby. The prep race shot the colt from 10 points to 110 points for trainer Doug O'Neill. MIDNIGHT BOURBON is now ranked #2 on the board with 66 points, moving up from 26 points with his second place finish. 

A few more major shifts this week as LIFE IS GOOD was pulled from the Road to the Kentucky Derby due to injury. After seeing the vet, the colt will be having surgery to remove an ankle chip. This left a hole to be filled on the leaderboard and O BESOS filled it with his third place finish in the Louisiana Derby, earning 25 points. PROXY also added 10 points finishing fourth, moving himself up the board a bit as well.
