I Want Revenge scratched from Kentucky Derby updated at 9:48 a.m.
The morning-line favorite is no longer in the race after his trainer found a hot spot on the horse's left front ankle. The Streak has cancelled the I Want Revenge proposition matchup.

Today's Preview
The Streak throws a little bit of everything on Saturday's slate, with nine different sports on the board. Playing a starring role is the most exciting two minutes in sports - the Run For The Roses.

We start early in the Eternal City where the top tennis players in the world are readying their clay-court game for the upcoming French Open. Roger Federer goes against Novak Djokovic in a best of three semifinal matchup.

Manchester's second-best soccer club hosts the Blackburn Rovers in an EPL tilt. On the Streak the Rovers get the draw as well, but so far Streakers don't care as they're picking Manchester City by a 9-1 margin.

NHL Playoffs - Pittsburgh Penguins at Washington Capitals
Two of the league's top stars headline this second-round clash as Alex Ovechkin of the Caps and Sidney Crosby of the Pens meet for the first time in the post-season. The Penguins have a history of eliminating Washington from the playoffs, but they'll have to overcome the Capital's home-ice advantage this time.

There's a star-studded leaderboard in Quail Hollow, including golf's two most recognizable names. The Streak has two different third-round matchups: Phil vs. Tiger, or Villegas vs. Furyk. The Streak expects both matchups to go down to the Green Mile.

After all that, we still haven't reached the day's most legendary event! That would be the 135th Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs. We've put favorite I Want Revenge in a proposition where Streakers predict his final placing; alternatively, you can select Dunkirk or Friesan Fire in a finish-higher proposition.

Yesterday's Results
For the third straight day Streakers won about as many as they lost. Jim Furyk's demolishing of Tiger Woods prevented a banner day.
