Race To The Triple Crown Begins With The 140th Kentucky Derby

Perfect conditions greet 19 Kentucky Derby hopefuls

One couldn’t ask for a better day for a Championship horse race than the one we have in Louisville today. A fast track, 75 degree temperatures, and plenty of sunshine will mean all those fancy hats will come in handy. With a crowd in excess of 150,000 in attendance at Churchill Downs, California Chrome leads the favorites with a 5/2 line, followed by Wicked Strong at 6/1 and Danza and Intense Holiday who both have an 8/1 price.

Rosie Napravnik on Vicar’s In Trouble lone lady jockey in the Derby

It has never happened – no female jockey has ever won the Kentucky Derby or even finished in the money. Aboard Vicar’s In Trouble, Rosie Napravanik takes her third try at the Derby after she finished 9th on Pants On Fire in 2011 and 5th on Mylute last year. Vicar’s In Trouble (20/1 morning line) captured the G2 Louisiana Derby over fellow Kentucky Derby contender Intense Holiday with a 1:50:70 run over the 1 1/8 mile race.
