Projected Odds 2019 Kentucky Derby Tacitus

Omaha Beach (137.5 qualifying points) 9-2 projected odds

Omaha Beach has been one of the busiest horses on the Derby trail and he has been improving with every race. He finished third in his maiden race. Also, followed it up with two second-place finishes before reeling off three consecutive wins, two of which came over Bob Baffert-trained Improbable and Game Winner. These were the favorites to win the Kentucky Derby at the time. With his recent string of wins and the competition he has defeated. He is another favorite that is capable of winning the Run for the Roses.

Vekoma (110 qualifying points) 15-1 projected odds for 2019 Kentucky Derby

Vekoma has won three of the four races he has been entered in and finished third in the fourth race. He has flown under the radar for most of the prep season because he did not participate in a G1 race. Since he didn’t face any of the favorites during the prep season, expect a middle of the pack finish for him.

Roadster (100 qualifying points) 5-1 projected odds

In conclusion, the Bob Baffert-trained horse was one of the early Derby favorites. Also, remains one of the top favorites after winning the two prep races he was entered in. One of which was a win over fellow Baffert-trained horse Game Winner. The only knock against Roadster is that he has only raced in California and could struggle on the Churchill Downs track.
