The 2018 Kentucky Derby

  • Mendelssohn- Aidan O’Brien's colt Mendelssohn can score a first for Europe

The pool is now over $13 million and Justify has ticked down to 3-1 from 7-2. Justify is one of two horses that have raced only three times.

Because it imposes itself on individual horses rather than long-suffering fan bases, Apollo's curse is more akin to the fabled "Sports Illustrated" cover jinx or, perhaps, the "Madden" video game cover jinx that afflicts National Football League stars.

Justify is undefeated, and Magnum Moon is 4-0, neither having run as a 2-year-old.

Baffert, a four-time Derby victor, came close to overcoming the so-called Apollo curse, finishing second with Bodemeister in 2012.

He's trained by Bob Baffert, who's helped four horses en route to Derby wins, most recently with Triple Crown victor American Pharoah. Also a son of Scat Daddy, Justify won an Optional Claiming race at Santa Anita by 6 1/2 lengths on a muddy track in his second start. "You're going to have to have some luck". You can also use the site to place bets on who you think will take the three top spots - win, place and show - at this year's Derby.

Derby City woke up to rain on Saturday. This is where they are at 3 p.m. local time (noon Pacific).




My Boy Jack moved up to the 5-1 second choice in early wagering Friday. The closer is trained by Keith Desormeaux and ridden by Kent Desormeaux, a three-time Derby victor and Keith's brother.

Still, just in case it's not, here's a look at how this year's Derby horses have done on sloppy or muddy tracks. Having put in a very impressive half-mile morning workout recently at Churchill Downs, it is obvious Vino Rosso has a liking for the track and may take another step forward and into the record books, also giving trainer Todd Pletcher his third Derby victory and second in a row after saddling Always Dreaming to win past year. Adults who watched the Kentucky Derby past year were more likely to make a trip to a casino, put money in a slot machine or play table games like blackjack, craps, poker and roulette.

Mendelssohn is a shipper from Ireland.

If you're thinking of sticking with a low-priced streaming television service after the Kentucky Derby final results are announced, the odds are that Sling TV will be a victor for you.

High school dropout Mick Ruis will try to become just the third owner-trainer to win.
