2019 Kentucky Derby entries, odds and picks: Taking a shot against Baffert favorites

A field of 19 three-year-olds is place to satisfy the gates for its 145th running of the Kentucky Derby on Saturday at Churchill Downs, and with Omaha Beach scratched due to a respiratory issue, Game Winner is currently the recorded as the morning-line favored at 9/2 odds. Roadster (5/1) and Improbable (5/1) are also gaining attention, and three are trained by the past year’s Triple Crown-winning trainer, Bob Baffert.
Bodexpress was the also-eligible horse and overlooks Omaha Beach. There isn’t another alternate runner, so Friday morning’s scrape of 30/1 longshot Haikal due to an abscess in his left front hoof renders the Derby one short of a whole 20-horse field.
The 1??1/4-mile competition boasts an increased purse this past year $3 million, with the winner receiving $1.86 million.
This year’s Run for the Roses seems to be a wide-open affair without a straightforward favorite. The public choice has won each Derby since 2013, but there is always betting value in such a large field, especially with a popular that might pay $11.
The Kentucky Derby will be televised nationally on NBC with policy staring at 1:30 p.m. CT and place time at 5:50 pm CT..
Let’s fulfill the field:
2019 Kentucky Derby post positions, odds, trainers, jockeys and documents 1) WAR OF WILL
Morning-line odds: 15/1
Trainer: Mark Casse
Jockey: Tyler Gaffalione
Record: 8 begins (3 first, 1 second, 1 third)
Earnings: $501,569
Enters the Derby off a ninth-place finish in the Louisiana Derby, where he took an embarrassing step at the start and never recovered. He has been training well, and that misstep does not appear to have affected him physically. He’s a minor player if healthy.
2) TAX
Morning-line odds: 20/1
Trainer: Danny Gargan
Jockey: Junior Alvarado
Record: 5 begins (2-2-1)
Earnings: $326,300
A runner-up to Tacitus in his last outing in the Wood Memorial, Tax is a tough and hard-trying sort, and a longshot capable of outrunning his chances. Can catch a minor award when he brings his best.
3) BY MY STANDARDS
Morning-line odds: 15/1
Trainer: Bret Calhoun
Jockey: Gabriel Saez
Record: 5 starts ( 2-2-1)
Earnings: $653,710
Jumped up from a maiden winner at his fourth start to taking the Louisiana Derby by three-quarters of a length over Spinoff. Talented colt appears up against it Saturday.
4) GRAY MAGICIAN
Morning-line chances: 50/1
Trainer: Peter Miller
Jockey: Drayden Van Dyke
Record: 8 starts (1-3-2)
Earnings: $584,140
Decent runner-up at the 1??3/16-mile UAE Derby at Dubai on March 30 one of a suspect area. In his only triumph, he beat five horses. Not liking his opportunities just one bit.
5) IMPROBABLE
Morning-line odds: 5/1
Trainer: Bob Baffert
Jockey: Irad Ortiz Jr..
Record: 5 starts (3-2-0)
Earnings: $584,140
Second-place finishes at the Rebel and Arkansas Derby to start the entire year, and they have been both good efforts. Blinkers are off for the Derby, and this horse and his connections ought to not be taken lightly in this contest.
6) VEKOMA
Morning-line odds: 15/1
Trainer: George Weaver
Jockey: Javier Castellano
Record: 4 starts (3-0-1)
Earnings: $788,850
He was an impressive winner of the Blue Grass Stakes in his last outing and owns three wins from four starts. This fellow has an odd running style, as his front legs flail outward while in stride. Talented runner, however I will not be using him.
7) MAXIMUM SECURITY
Morning-line odds: 8/1
Trainer: Jason Servis
Jockey: Luis Saez
Record: 4 starts (4-0-0)
Earnings: $649,400
Four begins equaling four successes with an average margin of over nine lengths. This man will probably be on or near the lead, and we’ll learn whether he is the actual deal, but you need to admire his race/work ethic. He looks like a participant.
8) TACITUS
Morning-line odds: 8/1
Trainer: Bill Mott
Jockey: Jose Ortiz
Record: 4 starts (3-0-0)
Earnings: $653,000
Gorgeous gray son of Tapit overcame trouble in his final outing in the Wood Memorial — he had been bumped at the break and assessed on the first turn but recovered to win by 1??1/4 lengths over charitable. The fact he dealt with those distractions and had no issues with visitors bodes well for him . He can hit the plank when he gets his way, but I’m leaning elsewhere to the top several positions.
