Bet On Kentucky Derby Online

Today we will go over the latest changes in the Kentucky Derby media poll and what this means if you plan to bet on Kentucky Derby online or in a land-based sportsbook. For the first time since last fall, there were no qualifying races for the Kentucky Derby, but that didn’t seem to matter to the media poll voters, who made a few changes to the latest poll. According to the experts, their votes were influenced by the workouts daily training sessions they have observed.

“We have opinions based on what’s we’ve seen so far, and now it’s time for the horses to reaffirm or alter those opinions with their final preparations,” said Joe Kristufek, racing analyst for Churchill Downs.

Even though most of the top 10 remained the same, there were a few changes in the order they were in a week ago.

Justify remained in the top spot and remains the most impressive horse on the list according to the Voters.

Mendelssohn, who was fourth in the rankings last week, jumped into second place. Bolt d’Oro remained in third place this week, followed by Audible, who was fifth last week, and Magnum Moon, who dropped from second to fifth.

“Best potential Kentucky Derby field in years,” said Fred Cowgill, the longtime sports anchor at Louisville’s CBS affiliate, WLKY. “Any other year any of Top 6 could be post time favorite. Sticking with very live long shot and Blue Grass winner Good Magic. Tasty at likely double digit odds!”

Even though his previous votes had been placed on accomplishments during the qualification stage, Horse Racing Nation’s Brian Zipse said he voted this time based on which horse he feels will win the Kentucky Derby.

“It’s time to shake things up in the poll,” Zipse said. “Based on accomplishments before, I’ve now changed it drastically to reflect who I think will win the Derby.”
