The favourite for the Kentucky Derby, according to OddsShark, is Justify, thanks to a trio of wins in three career starts. Jockey Mike Smith might have only won the Kentucky Derby once, back in 2005, but he has a superb chance following impressive victories since February.
The second favourite was bought for $3 million at the 2016 Keeneland September yearling sale, the highest fee among the 20 horses racing in Louisville, and it easy to see why. Mendelssohn, the half-brother of champion racer Beholder, won the UAE Derby on March 31 by a phenomenal 18-and-a-half lengths.
Mendelssohn was also victorious in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf at Del Mar last November, while his jockey Ryan Moore was Champion Jockey in Great Britain in 2006, 2008 and 2009. All those credentials together make for an exciting horse and a worthy challenger.
Good Magic and Bolt d’Oro were the two runners who showed the best form in 2017, and the latter has sat at or near the top of the board for many oddsmakers in the past few months. He’ll be under Victor Espinoza at Churchill Downs―the same jockey who worked with California Chrome and American Pharoah―and has impressed with his work leading up to the race.
