The 2019 Kentucky Derby


April 27th 2019

We are now one week away from 145th Run for the Roses. I have will be posting a preview of the race once post-positions are confirmed on Tuesday. I haven’t written much on the Derby Trail this year as I have focused more on writing about NHL hockey which can be found here:

Overall, I like Omaha Beach and Maximum Security as my Derby co-favorites at the moment. However, I want to see the final post-positions before making any pick recommendations. There is still a part of me that thinks we may get a surprise winner. And especially if it is a wet race. So I will be monitoring the Louisville weather reports.

Stay tuned!

    Great to see a Derby post! I was worried … You’re the best!

      Thanks. I am doing fine. Just broadening my writing horizons. Perhaps a little disenchanted with a few things with the sport of horse racing. But I will be previewing all Triple Crown races.
