DERBY PREVIEW

SEPTEMBER 3.2020 1/ST BET STUDIOS

Eddie Olczyk & Jeff Siegel preview the Kentucky Derby and give an early look at wagering strategies based on current field.

TIZ THE LAW  //  1-1-1-1-3

Points: 372

TRAVERS S. REPLAY

AUGUST 8.2020 SARATOGA

The Florida Derby, Belmont Stakes and Travers winner already has answered the Kentucky Derby’s distance question. From the same owner/trainer as Funny Cide in 2003, Tiz the Law could be the heaviest Derby favorite since Arazi was 4-5 in 1992.

  3AUTHENTIC  //  1-2-1-1-1

Points: 200

HASKELL S. REPLAY

JULY 18.2020 MONMOUTH PARK

Bob Baffert’s best chance to notch an all-time, record-tying sixth Kentucky Derby victory, he held on by a nose to win the Haskell Stakes at Monmouth. Authentic’s only defeat was a Santa Anita Derby runner-up to Honor A.P.

  2HONOR A.P.  //  2-1-2-1-2

Points: 140

SANTA ANITA DERBY REPLAY

JUNE 6.2020 SANTA ANITA PARK

The Santa Anita Derby winner was dealt a surprising defeat at Del Mar in his final Kentucky Derby tune-up. But this is the same jockey/trainer tandem that upset the 2005 Derby with 50-1 shot Giacomo and teamed with the legendary Zenyatta.

  4 NY TRAFFIC //  2-2-2-3-1

Points: 110

HASKELL STAKES REPLAY

JULY 18.2020 MONMOUTH PARK

Runner-up by a nose to Authentic in the Grade 1 Haskell, he’s 0-for-6 in stakes races but has been knocking on the door. Expect Ny Traffic to be among the early Kentucky Derby leaders.

  4 THOUSAND WORDS //  1-2-11-4-1

Points: 83

SHARED BELIEF STAKES REPLAY

AUGUST 1.2020 DEL MAR

Stablemate of Authentic will try to give trainer Bob Baffert an all-time, record-tying sixth Kentucky Derby victory. He upset Honor A.P. most recently as a 9-1 shot in the Shared Belief Stakes in California.

  4 MAX PLAYER //  3-3-1-1-2

Points: 60

RECENT WORKOUT

AUGUST 24.2020

Third-place finisher in the Belmont Stakes and the Travers Stakes, he will have a new trainer (Steve Asmussen) and new jockey (Ricardo Santana Jr.) for the Kentucky Derby.

Points: 43

RECENT WORKOUT

AUGUST 23.2020

Trainer Mark Casse won two-thirds of last year’s Triple Crown with War of Will (Preakness) and Sir Winston (Belmont). This late-running longshot can give Casse his first Derby victory in his eighth attempt.

  4 MAJOR FED  //  2-10-4-2-1

Points: 38

INDIANA DERBY REPLAY

JULY 8.2020 INDIANA GRAND

Longshot will try to rally from the back of the pack and register his first stakes win. He was runner-up in the Indiana Derby most recently, and fourth in the Louisiana Derby in March.

Points: 36

DEL MAR R1 REPLAY

AUGUST 10.2020 DEL MAR

Points: 35

ELLIS PARK DERBY REPLAY

AUGUST 9.2020 ELLIS PARK

Points: 30

SAM F. DAVIS STAKES REPLAY

FEBRUARY 8.2020 TAMPA BAY DOWNS

After a disappointing effort in June’s Belmont Stakes, he’s been on the sidelines and training up to the Derby. He burst onto the scene this spring with late-running efforts at Tampa Bay Downs.

  4 WINNING IMPRESSION  //  7-7-4-1-3

Points: 20

RECENT WORKOUT

AUGUST 24.2020

Unplaced in the Arkansas Derby, Indiana Derby and Ellis Park Derby, this late-running longshot would be one of the race’s biggest surprises. Trainer Dallas Stewart’s runners finished second in the 2013 and 2014 Kentucky Derby editions at 34-1 and 37-1 odds.

  4 NECKER ISLAND  //  6-1-2-1-3

Points: 14

INDIANA DERBY REPLAY
