Derby Day 2016

Nyquist the FL Derby11

Tomorrow will be another exciting Kentucky Derby, maybe not the American Pharoah triple crown … but you never know!

The 2016 Kentucky Derby will be held on Saturday at Churchill Downs at 6:43 p.m. ET.

Nyquist stands as the current favorite, with a 3–1 chance to win this year’s Derby. According to the odds, Exaggerator will pose as Nyquist’s toughest challenger on Saturday, as the horse has 8–1 odds to win the race. Mohaymen, Gun Runner and Creator all have 10–1 odds to round out the top five horses, at the moment.

Trojan Nation, Oscar Nominated and Laoban have been given the worst odds out of the 22 horses in Saturday’s race, as they each currently have 50–1 odds to win.

But then there is always a possible upset;

The ultimate spoiler is Oscar Nominated, at 50-1, trained by Mike Maker. He won the Spriral last out on Polytrack at Turfway, but has not run on dirt. All prior starts on turf as his sire, Kitten’s Joy, is the most prolific U.S. turf sire presently. Turf form translates to Polytrack often as it did for him in the Spiral. Should he win, the winner’s circle presentation with the Ramseys will be classic. A Kentucky family that loves their racing at every level. While Mr. Ramsey’s dream is to win a race at Royal Ascot and collect a trophy from the Queen, we here in Kentucky love it win he wins a race on a muddy track and then leads his horse into the winner’s circle barefooted. The Ramseys LOVE the game.
