2019 Kentucky Derby Post Positions

Kentucky Derby

The May 4th running of the 2019 Kentucky Derby will be the landmark 145th time that the race has been held since the first derby horses raced down the track in Louisville in 1875.

Post positions are traditionally drawn on the Wednesday afternoon before the big race, so set your calendars for May . 1, 2019 for the official list of horses, positions, trainers, jockeys, and morning line odds when the field is chosen to enter this year's Run for the Roses.

Picking a Derby winner

To choose the winner you need to know the pedigree of the horse and his past history in the Stakes races. How the horse handles various track conditions can mean the difference between a win or an also-ran.

Who trains and rides the colt is another fact that handicappers look at. Pros can also look back on patterns of past Kentucky Derby winners and use that knowledge to predict the outcome.

Since 2000, only three of the horses who were favorites at the start of the Kentucky Derby finished in the money. In 2000 Fusaichi Pegasus won and in 2004 Smarty Jones won. Empire Maker placed in 2003. Harlan's Holiday (2002), Bellamy Road (2005) and Sweetnorthernsaint (2006) all heavy favorites finished seventh.

The sweetheart of the odds makers in 2001, Point Given, ended his race in fifth place. In spite of all of the best guesses from odds makers, the final verdict can only be decided by the horse and rider when the winner crosses the finish line.
