Normandy Invasion is the fifth choice at 12-1. The other 15 horses are all 15-1 or higher, including Pletcher’s trio of Overanalyze (15-1), Palace Malice (20-1), and Charming Kitten (20-1).

Spiral Stakes winner Black Onyx drew the No. 1 post and is one of five 50-1 shots in the field. That spot has produced 12 Derby winners, tying with No. 5 for the most successful post positions.

If all 20 horses start, the purse would be $2,199,800. The winner earns $1,439,800.
