"It'll be broken whether it's this year or whatever", Baffert said of the curse.

Santa Anita Derby victor Justify was given 3-1 odds in the morning line for U.S. flat racing's Triple Crown opener for three-year-olds over the 1 1/4-mile track at Louisville's Churchill Downs.

Breeders' Cup, one of Thoroughbred horse racing's most prestigious worldwide events, today announced the launch of a new sweepstakes tied to the 2018 Kentucky Derby.

"That's a good spot", Baffert said of Justify's draw. Mendelssohn dominated at the UAE Derby in Dubai, winning the race by 18 1/2 lengths.

And so have the oddsmakers as Magnum Moon, despite being in that 16th spot, is a 6-to-1 favorite. Most of the experts think this is a Derby deep with talent and that there are seven or eight horses who have a legitimate shot to win. Justify has looked great in his workouts leading up to the Derby, and his trainer-Bob Baffert-has won this race four times before, including in 2015 with Triple Crown victor American Pharoah. They're going to have those horses ready.

Justify is 3-0 in his brief career, winning by a combined 19 lengths. He won the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf race at Del Mar last fall before having his training disrupted a bit by a cold winter in Europe.

"It's one of the toughest Derbys that I've ever seen and one of the best draws that I've ever seen".

"The Kentucky Derby is one of the most spectacular events in horse racing and the ideal moment to get fans excited about the season ahead", said Breeders' Cup President and CEO Craig Fravel.

However, on the back of a spectacular UAE Derby victory in Meydan, Mendelssohn is among the favourites to make history at Churchill Downs. Probably not. The good news is that he won the biggest race in America. Second choice at 5-to-1 is Mendelssohn, the victor of the UAE Derby in Dubai. Promises Fulfilled, who has been in front at the first call of each of his five races, drew post 3 and, barring a bad break, will nearly certainly be sent to the front.

"It's horse racing and that's what happens", Pletcher said after Tuesday's draw at Churchill Downs. The colt arrived Monday from Ireland.

The Kentucky Derby is four days away and once again, Acadiana will be represented at Churchill Downs.

Bottom line: If Pletcher wins his third Derby this year, putting him right on the heels of Baffert and D.Wayne Lukas, it will be impossible to quibble with the record. Mott was the youngest trainer ever inducted into the sport's Hall of Fame and held the record for most wins by a trainer at Churchill Downs until Dale Romans edged past him previous year.

Justify is one of two horses in Saturday's 1ΒΌ-mile race who didn't race at age 2.

Told by NBC Sports that three of the last seven Derby winners came from the auxiliary gate, Pletcher said, "We'll go with that angle". A startup called Ethorse has developed a game that works similar to horse racing, but instead of betting Ether on real horses, you bet on other cryptocurrencies.

"They are a little competitive, so they get to bet on their horse with play money, we use play money, 'prestige bucks, '" director of operations Yvonne Sturrock says.

The co-fourth choices are Audible and Bolt d'Oro at 8-1. He'll have the guidance of jockey Mike E. Smith, a four-time Triple Crown victor who ranks second in all-time earnings, according to Equibase. Enticed 30:1 13. Bravazo 50:1 14.
