Winning the Kentucky Derby is a dream for any horse owner, trainer or jockey. Saturday’s 146th Run for the Roses will undoubtedly cement another trio of legacies when the 2020 Kentucky Derby goes off just after 7 p.m. ET at famed Churchill Downs.
The Kentucky Derby 2020 will be unlike any other because it isn’t on the usual first Saturday in May due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and it’s also the second jewel in this year’s Triple Crown schedule due to the Belmont Stakes being run in June.
Tiz the Law, who was convincing in his Belmont Stakes victory and has a shot at becoming the 14th Triple Crown winner, is the 3-5 favorite in the 2020 Kentucky Derby odds.
Honor A.P., who didn’t run the Belmont but did win the Santa Anita Derby, is 5-1. Authentic, who won the Haskell Stakes, is at 8-1 among the 2020 Kentucky Derby contenders.
