Kentucky Derby 2019

There's nothing quite like Kentucky Derby betting, and with the 2019 Run for the Roses quickly approaching (Sat, May 4), this year's field is particularly wide-open. Let's meet the Kentucky Derby contenders, talk Kentucky Derby Future betting and examine the scope of the famed first leg of the U.S. Triple Crown, which is always followed by The Preakness Stakes and Belmont Stakes.

With 20 horses signed on to contest the Derby barring late scratches, bettors put themselves in the proverbial catbird's seat to take advantage of healthy odds. Even in the case of bona fide superstars such as American Pharoah (2015) and Justify (2019), both colts entered the starting gate in Louisville at around 5/2 (+250).
