How much is the prize money purse at the 2018 Kentucky Oaks?

  • The Kentucky Derby is on Saturday! What's your favorite thing about Derby Day?                      Alex Hider

He is a half brother to the retired mare Beholder, a four-time Eclipse Award victor.

Last year's win by Always Dreaming marked the fifth year in a row the pre-race favorite had won the race, the most since the 1890s.

The Derby has essentially the same set of characters every year, which makes it fun and easy to handicap the victor.

This time, however, is it too good to be true?

Since Bold Arrangement, 36 Kentucky Derby horses have prepped overseas, including 9-5 favorite Mister Frisky in 1990 and 4-5 favorite Arazi in 1992. While he does not have a lot of experience with just three previous starts, he is trained by William Mott and ridden by Irad Ortiz Jr.

Apollo isn't among the 19 names programmed to clash with Justify in the 144th Run for the Roses, but he has been the second-most talked about horse during Derby Week at Churchill Downs.

Although Walden declined to offer details of the sponsorship agreement, Walden said the Audible horse ownership group was intrigued by Audible, Inc.'s concept for cross-promotion of the horse and its products, including a comprehensive social media campaign and television commercials that tie into horse racing, and the company's commitment to contribute to equine aftercare. "For Bob Baffert to say that, that's an extremely high compliment". Bred by John Gunther's Glenwood Farm, out of the Ghostzapper mare Stage Magic, Justify shared a paddock with Wood Memorial victor Vino Rosso. Most of the horses that finished behind him have returned as 3-year-olds with big victories. "He worked five-eighths, and usually they get a little exhausted because our track at Santa Anita is really deep". "The track was really deep that morning, and he went around there effortlessly". I know justify it's 321.

The 2018 Run for the Roses is scheduled to begin at 6:34 p.m. ET on Saturday, May 5, but the actual race will likely start at 6:46 p.m. ET. He has run only one race on the dirt, but what a race it was as he won the EAU Derby in Dubai by 18 lengths.

However, as the favorite, many will poke holes in his resume.

What is "The Curse of Apollo?" He won in 1882. I looked over at him and got this massive smile on my face just as one particular picture was taken. "I don't worry about it".

Turning for home, he drifted toward the middle of the track, then in midstretch he angled back toward the rail.

Last year, instead of holding their annual 5K race fundraiser, Junior League members chose to mix things up and throw a derby party instead.

All the guesses and handicapping using various angles can be ignored as the gates open on Saturday, when more than 150,000 fans are in full throat and 20 horses barrel down the front straightaway at Churchill Downs just hoping to survive the crush that heads into that first turn. Justify, trained by Bob Baffert, is the victor of the Santa Anita Derby and has won his three starts by a combined 19 lengths. He returned with a win and a solid second to Justify in the Santa Anita Derby. Can he do that again in a 20-horse field? I rode Hofburg when we ran second to Audible in the Florida Derby and I was really impressed. "He ain't gonna be able to go out there all by himself".

As for advantages of having plural entries, Baffert, 65, sees "absolutely none", then pauses before saying, "Unless you're Todd Pletcher".

The Kentucky Derby is the world's most famous horse race and the most exciting two minutes in sports, but it's also one of the most hard events to predict, and this year's 144th running on Saturday evening at venerable Churchill Downs is no different. Racing podcasts (there's so many I can't listen to all of them, but I listen to a lot of them) give air time to guests who talk incessantly about Justify winning the Derby.

Even in 2015, the year American Pharoah-a.k.a. The biggest thing will be to get him relaxed off what I think will be a hot pace.

"The weather has been really pretty good", Baffert said.
