2019 Kentucky Derby Favorites

We are still a few months away from this year’s Run for the Roses. However, it is never too early to start looking at some of the horses that have looked good in the prep races so far to figure out which one of them look like favorites to win this year’s Kentucky Derby.

With that being said, here are some of the early favorites to win the 2019 Kentucky Derby.

1. Game Winner

It wouldn’t be the Kentucky Derby without a few Bob Baffert trained horses among the favorites to win the race. This three-year-old has been impressive in the prep races so far, and has won all four races he has been entered in. He hasn’t raced since the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile in November, but he is expected to return to the track at the San Felipe Stakes in March.

2. Improbable

Furthermore, this is another Baffert trained horse that has emerged as a favorite to win the Derby. He hasn’t been entered in the prestigious races Game Winner has been in. However, he has won the three races he has been in, including the G1 Los Alamitos Futurity in December. Also, he is expected to run in the Rebel Stakes next.
