Promises Fulfilled odds to win the 2018 Kentucky Derby were at 61-1.  Odds were previously at 33-1.

POST POSITION POSSIBILITIES

There have been five winners from this post position but none since 1998 (20 years).

THE GOOD

He did win the Grade 2 Fountain of Youth.  In fact, he will enter the Kentucky Derby with 3 wins in 5 starts along with a 3rd place finish.  It's possible the Florida Derby was just an outlier. 

Trainer Dale Romans hopes he follows his sire's success.

Romans acquired the Shackleford colt, Hip 921, for $37,000 from the Select Sales consignment for owner Robert J. Baron. He was named Promises Fulfilled and had an upset victory March 3 in the Xpressbet Fountain of Youth Stakes (G2) at Gulfstream Park.

"He was just a nice-looking little horse," Romans recalled of his impression of Promises Fulfilled as a yearling. "Carrie shows me the good ones when they come up, and she is good to buy from. He was my type. He looked like he might need to grow up and mature a little bit and, if he did, he'd be the right type of horse. And it came together pretty good for him.

"He has the same shape as his daddy," the trainer continued. "He's not as big as his daddy, but Shackleford wasn't that big early, and blossomed as he got older. If this horse does that, he'll be just like him."

THE BAD

Racing expert David Papadopoulos: “He’s fast out of the gate and so there’s a chance he’ll be in front early. There is zero chance, however, that he’ll be in front late.”

The all-time leading trainer at Churchill Downs, Romans has yet to win the Run for the Roses and it is the first time he will have two horses in the field.

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.
