Justify installed the early 3-1 favorite for Kentucky Derby

Justify, Mendelssohn atop 2018 Kentucky Derby Odds after post position draw

The 82-year-old Hall of Fame trainer is still going strong and especially enjoys this week. It was just his second since 2009 and occurred because his lone candidate got hurt.

The only horses (who didn't race as 2-year-olds) to either place or show at Kentucky were, according to the Washington Post: Hampden (third in 1946) Coaltown (second in 1948) Agitate (third in 1974), Reinvested (third in 1982), Strodes Creek (second in 1994), Curlin (third in 2007), Bodemeister (second in 2012) and Battle of Midway (third in 2017). He's won all three of his starts by a combined 19 lengths. Bolt d'Oro will carry the orange-and-purple silks of Spendthrift for the first time in the Derby and will stand at the Lexington, Kentucky, farm upon his conclusion from racing. At 6:46 p.m. ET on Saturday, the 2018 Kentucky Derby will run at Churchill Downs in Louisville, Kentucky. "The most important thing you look for is that they're physically 100 percent, if they're bothered by anything, or a little bit off". "I wouldn't want to be any farther inside, but he'll get to save some ground there and he's got a really good horse to his outside in Justify that will provide him with a horse to follow into the first turn". There's no way he could have imagined that someday he and Lukas would be tied for second all-time with four Kentucky Derby victories. The bill makes permanent a tax exemption that was temporarily put in place ahead of the 2015 Breeders' Cup event at Lexington's Keeneland Race Course and had expired late a year ago. "Todd's going to have his (horse) ready, and Baffert is going to have his". "Whether it happens this year or whatever, but it will happen because Bodemeister nearly got away with it".

"Having three of the four horses in the auxiliary gate wasn't what we were hoping for", Pletcher said.

"That was hard", Battaglia said of his decision to install Mendelssohn over Magnum Moon as the second choice in the field. Solomini drew Post 17 and was labeled a 30-1 shot on the morning line. Jockey Mike Smith can use the colt's early speed to position him well for the long run to the chaotic first turn. However, he entertains no such thoughts.

At least 28 migrants who made it into the United States on Wednesday had anxiously filed through the walkway to the US gate the night before.

"I'm pleased that Gov. Bevin chose Kentucky Derby week to ceremonially sign HB 259", said Senate Majority Leader Thayer. "I'm constantly meeting people". But they were not quite as good as a group as these horses.

The 144th version of the mile-and-a-quarter race for three-year-old thoroughbreds is anticipated to draw greater than 150,000 spectators. In all but one of Monomoy Girl's six starts, she's hit the wire first. In the final weeks of 2004, at the tender age of 25 and after only five years with Stewart, Cox set out on his own. "The big guys are sending me horses". In 2014, California Chrome gave his rider nothing but confidence, and the ride was an untroubled delight, while in 2015 Espinoza's abiding faith in American Pharoah wavered slightly when the colt seemed distracted, and yet he came through with a gritty win.

Always Dreaming, last year's Kentucky Derby victor, started from the No. 5 post, and that position has had the most success in the Run for the Roses since 1900 with 14 winners coming out of that gate.

"I think all the good horses are in good spots, " Baffert said.
