The Kentucky Derby is finally here. It’s a full 20 horse field this year and the three current betting favorites are Justfy at 3-1, Mendelssohn at 5-1 and Magnum Moon at 6-1.
The Favorite, Justify, is trained by Derby stalwart Bob Baffert who is trying to win his second derby in the past four years, having won in 2015 with American Pharaoh. Justify is looking to become the sixth consecutive Derby favorite to win at Churchill Downs.
If you’re looking for a longshot horse (that this reporter might be betting some monopoly money on) take a look at My Boy Jack going off at 30-1.
The 144th Kentucky Derby is the first leg of the coveted Triple Crown.
Post time is 6:46pm this Saturday and can be seen locally on NBC-TV.
