While Star Exhibit won the race last year, Mississippi Delta is the favourite horse to win the race, and for good reason.

Mississippi Delta has won 9 of the 18 races that he has entered over the course of his career, and he has total prize money of nearly $500,000.

Star Exhibit has won 12 of the 36 races that he has entered over the course of his career and has collected a staggering $1.5 million in total prize money.

In most circumstances, this would likely be a two-horse race, though the quality handicap makes things a bit more difficult.
