The Kentucky Derby has several longshots this year. Last year, jockey Mike Smith rode his way to a triple crown. He is back this year as well to go for it again but on a different horse. He will be riding Omaha Beach, who is one of the two horses in the derby that are favored to win. Omaha Beach won the Arkansas Derby and the Rebel Stakes earlier this year. Watching the Kentucky Derby live stream on May 4th is easy, fun, and free. What other horse is favored to win the derby?
The other horse who is favored to win the Kentucky Derby is Bob Baffert’s horse, Roadster. Roadster won the Santa Ana Derby and has three wins in four races. He is ridden by Florent Geroux. The race is less than ten days away from the derby and the excitement is building up.
The analysis and predictions of this race are interesting for sure. Some predict this year’s race is going to be mind-blowing. We have some early picks to share for the race. Maximum Security has been said to be a favorite, fresh off a win in Florida, but he will tire quickly is what the predictions tell us. The top horses in the world will be racing May 4th, and he cannot hang with them for too long.
A long shot favorite is Haikal. He has 50-1 odds against him, but several predictors are choosing him to win. He has won three races of five. Omaha Beach is favored to win the derby and has 7-2 odds. Followed by Roadster at 7-2 odds, Improbable 5-1, Maximum security at 6-1 odds, Game Winner who has 7-1 odds, and Tacitus at 14-1 odds. There are twenty horses who can take the garland of roses, but which one will be the champ? It could be a long shot and we could see Haikal or Country House, who has 100-1 odds, take the win. We won’t know until the race ends. What we do know is that this Kentucky Derby should be one for the history books and one everyone will be talking about for quite some time to come.
