Kentucky Derby Contenders 2018: Picks for Best Horses

With 20 horses racing in the Kentucky Derby, the post position could make or break a horse's chance at victory. Audible has a full-fledged social media campaign for the horse and has donated $15,000 to Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance, which is meant to help the quality of life for thoroughbreds after racing. Keep in mind, however, that odds change literally by the minute, and the odds you read here may be outdated even by the time you finish reading this article.

Last year's win by Always Dreaming marked the fifth year in a row the pre-race favorite had won the race, the most since the 1890s. Six horses have won from the No. 7 post, most recently Street Sense in 2007.

He's yet to run in a Grade 1 stakes on dirt, but in four Grade 2 and 3 appearances, he has never been worse than third. Promises Fulfilled 30:1 4. His morning-line odds to win are 8-1. Good Magic 12:! 7. In the past, contender merchandise was limited to a post position t-shirt with the contender's name and gate number. The colt is one of five 50-1 shots in the field. Hofburg 20:1 10. My Boy Jack 30:1 11.

Bolt d'Oro, on the other hand, appears to have enough speed in addition to the stamina needed to carry it the classic distance. His Santa Anita Derby effort was especially impressive, as he easily turned back a bid from the two-time Grade 1 victor Bolt d'Oro to draw off and win by three lengths, finishing fast while earning massive speed figures of 107 (Beyer) and 114 (BRIS).

The Churchill Downs oddsmaker posted Arkansas Derby victor Magnum Moon as the third pick on the morning line at 6-1. Since 2003, only two horses - Empire Maker and Funny Cide - finished in the top three of the Wood Memorial before doing the same in the Derby, so Vino Rosso and Enticed can also be discounted. His sire, Medaglia d'Oro, led all stallions in North America by producing seven Grade 1 winners in 2017 and his broodmare sire, A.P. Indy, the Belmont Stakes victor in 1992, has fourteen winners at classic distances.
