  • The 2018 Kentucky Derby

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.

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.
