2018 Kentucky Derby Fun Facts, Potential Firsts

The 2018 Kentucky Derby will be all about the "Apollo Curse" with both affected horses listed among the favorites.

Justify is the early 7-2 favorite for Saturday's 144th Run for the Roses with just three starts on his resume.

Justify, along with undefeated Magnum Moon, didn't race as 2-year-olds. They'll be trying to disprove an old jinx: No horse since Apollo in 1882 has won without racing as a juvenile.

History would also be written if Ireland-based Mendelssohn pulls off a victory. No European colt has ever won the Derby.

The forecast calls for a chance of rain at various times Saturday.

Solomini, Instilled Regard, Bolt d’Oro, Vino Rosso and Bravazo can all run on a wet track.  Bravazo is the biggest long shot at 66-1 odds and a victory by this horse could prove to be among the highest paying in Derby history.

Post time is 6:46 p.m. ET.

Horse Racing Odds – 2021 Belmont Stakes Longshots

The third jewel of horse racing’s Triple Crown takes place Saturday with a field of eight horses set to take their shot in the Belmont Stakes. Opening odds for the 153rd edition suggest a wide-open field, which in turn can lead to an upset special. The number of longshots is diminished by the small field, but like we saw in the Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes, anything can happen.
