Kentucky Derby Odds: Justify Looking Sharp

Did You Like This?

With less than two weeks remaining before the 2018 Kentucky Derby, it looks like Justify might be the horse to beat at Churchill Downs. He was the 4/1 co-favorite with Mendelssohn on the horse racing futures market heading into the weekend; odds are pending at press time, but Justify has drawn praise for Saturday’s latest workout at Santa Anita Park, dusting off six furlongs in 1:13.

Justify’s star continues to shine despite only racing three times for trainer Bob Baffert. The Kentucky-bred colt’s April 7 victory over former favorite Bolt d’Oro at the Grade 1 Santa Anita Derby was clocked at a Beyer Speed Figure of 107, after he posted a 104 in his debut and a 101 at an allowance race – all on the dirt at Santa Anita. Justify is trying to become the first horse since Apollo (1882) to win the Run for the Roses without having raced as a 2-year-old.

Also putting in solid work over the weekend: Good Magic, the reigning Breeders’ Cup Juvenile champion. The Chad Brown-trained colt was available at 8/1 after winning the G2 Blue Grass Stakes, but could improve after putting in four furlongs in 48 seconds at Keeneland.
