Combatant was coming in at 65/1 odds of winning the 2018 Kentucky Derby early on.

WHY COMBATANT CAN WIN THIS YEAR'S KENTUCKY DERBY

He has a career record of 1-3-1 in seven starts and never has finished worse than fourth. Maybe he’ll finally get a favorable post position in the Derby, as he’s drawn on the outside in his past three prep races at Oaklawn Park. His only career win came last October at Churchill.

He’s the quintessential “close but no cigar” horse. Since winning at Churchill, he’s finished second, second, second, third and fourth.

WHAT THEY ARE SAYING

Steve Asmussen says he hopes Combatant draws the outside post.

“In the Derby with 20 runners, I’d rather he be a little toward the outside, which is where he’s been drawing all year when I didn’t want him to,” Asmussen said Monday morning at Churchill Downs. “So I’m sure he’ll get the inside this time.”

In regard to the Churchill Downs track, Asmussen says:

Combatant has spent a lot of time training here and is very comfortable in the surroundings,” Asmussen said. “I thought he put in a very typical half-mile, week-of-race breeze for us.”

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.
