Free Drop Billy was coming in at 55/1 odds of winning the 2018 Kentucky Derby early on.

WHY FREE DROP BILLY CAN WIN THIS YEAR'S KENTUCKY DERBY

He’s finished in the money in 7 of 8 career starts, the only bad race coming in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile (ninth place). With stablemate Promises Fulfilled expected to set fast early fractions, he figures to the set-up he needs to make a late charge.

His career-best Beyer Speed Figure – 90 in the Holy Bull – indicates he’s just not fast enough to compete with the best horses in this field.

WHAT THEY ARE SAYING

Regarding the distance, trainer Dale Romans thinks the 1 1/4-mile track suits his horse well:

"I think the added distance is what's going to move him up. The mile and a quarter he'll love," Romans said. "He's only run one bad race ever—we don't have an explanation for that one—but all of the others have been good races."

Malaysian Horse Racing: A History of the Sport

The history of horse racing in Malaysia is largely influenced by Australian racing. The country's interest in racing was first evident in the 1880s, when organizers began setting up large race meetings twice a year. In 1896, the Straits Racing Association and Penang Turf Club were established. As a result, horse racing in Malaysia has a rich history.
