Since the Breeders' Cup, no 2-year-old has emerged to take the 2012 Kentucky Derby winter book favoritism away from Union Rags, trained by Matz. Only Hansen has been able to beat Union Rags on the track. A few horses ran faster Beyer Speed Figures, but none really proved anything.


There have been just three triple-digit Beyer Figures earned by a 2-year-old this year - J.C.'s Pride and the filly Stopshoppingmaria (both 101) and Overdriven (100).

Overdriven's figure declined seven points in his Sanford win and he never raced again.
