Hofburg was coming in at 35-2 odds of winning the 2018 Kentucky Derby early on.

WHY HOFBURG CAN WIN THIS YEAR'S KENTUCKY DERBY

With just three career starts, he seems to have plenty of room to improve after his second-place showing in the Florida Derby. Trainer Bill Mott isn’t one to enter the Kentucky Derby with a subpar contender.

WHY HOFBURG CAN'T WIN THIS YEAR'S KENTUCKY DERBY

With just three career starts, does he have enough seasoning to compete against 19 other horses. He seems to have reached “wise-guy” status, which usually is a death knell.

WHAT THEY ARE SAYING

Trainer Bill Hofburg after Hofburg easily handled his workmate, posting splits of :13 1/5, :24 3/5, and :36 1/5 with a gallop out to five furlongs in 1:01 1/5 and six furlongs in 1:14 4/5 in his final Churchill Downs workout.

"He looked smooth as silk coming by me," Mott said of Hofburg, who has made just three career starts heading into the 10-furlong classic. "When he passed the eighth pole and approached the wire, he looked really good, switched leads and went into the turn and galloped out good around the turn. I was very pleased with the work. Visually, he looked as good as he can look."
