Kentucky Derby Predictions and Odds
Justify won the previous Kentucky Derby last year. The Jockey Mike Smith turned the horse into the 13th Triple Crown kentucky derby winner ever.
Mike Smith is back to the 2019 Kentucky Derby. However, he will not be riding Justify. Instead, he will ride Omaha Beach, one of the two 2019 Kentucky Derby favorites at 7-2. Omaha Beach has quite a reputation after having victory at Arkansas Derby and Rebel Stakes.
The fixture in the horse racing has been discussing the betting on the races for years. Derby’s previous winner, Justify, was the accurate kentucky derby Predictions of Demling. He is popular in the world of betting due to his close forecast. So, what did he say about the upcoming Kentucky Derby 2019?
Regarding the shape of the 2019 Kentucky Derby lineup, Demling is sharing his early picks. From what he said, we could agree that Demling is not interested in Maximum Security. As we know, Maximum Security is one of the top Vegas favorites at 6-1 odds. The horse won Florida Derby back then. But when it comes to 2019 Kentucky Derby, it won’t be the same thing. The challenge is different because the field has some of the top horses on earth.
There’s a sensible behind this statement. Kentucky Derby 2019 is about 1 1/4 miles in length. The favorite Maximum Security has never run the distance. So, it is still a bit bias to say that he could make it.
Meanwhile, Demling takes on Haikal. It has Kentucky Derby odds 50-1. The three years old Haikal has had attained quite achievements in the Road to Kentucky Derby 2019. He has three wins in his five career starts.
