The 2018 Kentucky Derby

Stars' Most Memorable Kentucky Derby Looks Through The Years

This marks the 144th running of the Kentucky Derby. His trainer Bob Baffert has won the Derby four times. An old jinx could be disproved, and history would be written if Mendelssohn wears the garland of red roses.

He did so again on Friday morning, again drawing a sizable crowd, as he prepares for Saturday's U.S. $2 million Kentucky Derby (Group 1). Trained by Baffert, the Southern California colt, however, is green, with just three starts.

Good Magic, last year's champion 2-year-old male and victor of this year's Blue Grass Stakes drew post 6. "You're going to have to have some luck".

This year's Kentucky Derby has also inaugurated Road to the Derby qualification runs in Europe and Japan. Likely to improve once again in his third start as a 3-year-old, Audible is absolutely a win contender in this race.

Arkansas Derby victor Magnum Moon is one of four horses to be saddled by Todd Pletcher, who won last year's Derby with Always Dreaming.

Trained by Chad Brown, Good Magic has been training very well at Churchill Downs and looks to be peaking for a career-best effort. Another of Leslie's Lady's foals is Into Mischief, himself a top sire represented by Florida Derby victor Audible in this race. "I should know it took me a while to win my first one", Pletcher said.

Bettors made My Boy Jack the 5-1 second choice in Friday's early wagering.

It was also learnt that the collegium did not discuss any specific names of other high court chief justices for elevation to the Supreme Court.

Baffert, a four-time Derby victor, came close to overcoming the so-called Apollo curse, finishing second with Bodemeister in 2012.

Mendelssohn comes to Kentucky with three consecutive wins, including the 2017 Breeders Cup juvenile turf and 2018 UAE Derby.

Getting the ideal trip in the Derby is critical, especially with the traffic from 20 horses making a chaotic charge into the first turn. Around 10,000 people are expected, but there is still room for more.

"He has a big personality, we always try to encourage our horses to develop a personality, and he has developed a big one", O'Brien explained. Bolt d'Oro finished second to Justify in the Santa Anita Derby. "He has progressed nicely and has passed every test we have asked him to pass so far and that's why we are here today".

Jerry Hollendorfer (Instilled Regard), Lukas (Bravazo) and Bill Mott (Hofburg). "Even though he's vocal and cries out and calls to other horses, he's not coltish and doesn't draw or show". He's run six times since without a win, though he did run second to Noble Indy in the Louisiana Derby last time out.

"I think it says "I'm here for business, but I like to party", Chad Zaneis, who traveled from Arizona, said, commenting on his suit, which featured flamingo. Despite being Baffert trained and victor of the best prep in California, I don't like any of the California horses in this Derby.
