2012 Kentucky Derby: Profiles Of All 20 Horses In Saturday's Field

The 2012 Kentucky Derby will be run this weekend and now that the post positions have been set for the field, the clear favorite is Bodemeister to win at 4-1 odds with Union Rags a close second choice at 9-2 odds, Gemologist is third at 6-1 odds and Dullahan rounds out the top four at 8-1 odds.

But what do we know about these horses?

Reuters.com has complete profiles of every horse in the field which includes post position, the horse itself, the jockey and the trainer. Here's the profile on Rousing Sermon:

7. ROUSING SERMON; Jose Lezcano; Jerry Hollendorfer; Has won two of nine starts. Has not won a race this season but finished third in the Louisiana Derby. Hollendorfer was inducted into the Hall of Fame last year after a career in which he has saddled more than 6000 winners.

The race is set for Saturday at 5 ET, although there is a bevy of TV coverage before and after the actual race.
