Bob Baffert and Todd Pletcher are training six of the top 10 horses in the AP's latest Run to the Roses list of Kentucky Derby contenders.

Baffert's Lookin At Lucky remains No. 1 awaiting his 3-year-old debut in the San Felipe Stakes on March 13. Conveyance has become the trainer's No. 3 prospect following his win in Saturday's Southwest Stakes at Oaklawn Park.

Pletcher hit a trifecta Saturday with victories in three Derby preps. Eskendereya romped in the Fountain of Youth at Gulfstream Park, Discreetly Mine won the Risen Star at the Fair Grounds and Connemara took the El Camino Real at Golden Gate Fields.

The results leave Pletcher with four top-10 horses — No. 2 Eskendereya, No. 4 Rule, No. 5 Discreetly Mine and No. 9 Connemara.
