    The good news for Catalytic fans is that he ran a career-best race in finishing second in the Florida Derby. The bad news is that he finished 13½ lengths behind the winner, Fierceness. Because of that margin of defeat, Catalytic will leave the Kentucky Derby starting gate as one of the biggest longshots in the race, and he will need to outrun his odds to be a factor in the race.
