Betting On Kentucky Derby Winner

The 145th Kentucky Derby is only 19 days away, which means we have had more than enough time to see the horses that will be in action on May 4 perform. Based on their performances throughout the prep season, we have come up with a list of the top contenders at the upcoming Run for the Roses, which are listed below.

1. Omaha Beach

Omaha Beach didn’t get off to a great start, finishing third and second in his first two races. He also finished second in his maiden race as a three-year-old before reeling off three consecutive wins, and knocking off two of the top contenders in his last two races, which will likely make him the favorite to win the Derby.

2. Improbable

Improbable was one of the top contenders to win the Derby after winning his first three races. Since then, he ran in two prep races and finished second in both, dropping him down to second place on the contender’s list. The fact that he looked very good when he ran at Churchill Downs last year also helps his case as the favorite to win the Derby this year.

Now we look at the remaining 3 horses on who wins the Kentucky Derby.

3. Game Winner

Like Improbable, Game Winner looked impressive winning his first four races, which includes last year’s Breeders’ Cup Juvenile. Since then, he finished second at the Rebel Stakes and second at the Santa Anita Derby, which has led some to wonder if he can pull off the Derby win.

4. Roadster

Roadster won his first race then finished third in Del Mar Futurity, losing to Game Winner. An injury forced him out of action since September, but he has looked good since his return, winning his last two races, one of which came against Game Winner at the Santa Anita Derby.

5. Tacitus

Tacitus has been flying under the radar but he looked impressive during the prep season and has won his last three races. However, none of the wins came at a G1 race which means he hasn’t faced the caliber of opponents the other horses on this list have, which is why he isn’t higher on the list.
