The 2019 Kentucky Derby takes place on Saturday, May 4 at Churchill Downs. Before you lock in any picks for the annual Run for the Roses, you ABSOLUTELY need to see what our resident horse racing guru, Jody Demling, has to say.
A fixture in the horse racing world who has been writing about, talking about and betting on races for years, Demling comes into the Kentucky Derby 2019 on a mind-blowing streak: He has hit the Derby-Oaks double at Churchill Downs nine of the last 10 years! That means he held a ticket with the winners of the Kentucky Derby and Kentucky Oaks nine times in the last decade.
He's absolutely crushed the biggest horse races and predicted nine of the last 14 Preakness winners. He also nailed Justify's groundbreaking win in the Belmont Stakes as well as the Haskell Invitational, Pennsylvania Derby, and Lecomte Stakes, just to name a few. He also hit last year's Arkansas Derby and Louisiana Derby leading up to the first Saturday in May.
Demling absolutely crushed this year's Pegasus World Cup, nailing the superfecta for a $678 payout on a $1 bet. He also hit the superfecta at the Robert B. Lewis Stakes and picked the winner of the Risen Star Stakes in February with War of Will. He had a huge weekend recently too, hitting his exacta, trifecta, and superfecta in the Wood Memorial, Santa Anita Derby, and Blue Grass Stakes. Plus, he hit his exacta, trifecta, and superfecta in this year's Arkansas Derby. Anyone who has followed him is up HUGE.
For the 2019 Kentucky Derby, we can tell you Demling is fading Roadster despite that horse going off as one of the top Vegas favorites and winning the Santa Anita Derby. In fact, he says Roadster doesn't even crack the top five. But Demling is especially high on a monumental long shot, saying he'll hit the board at the 2019 Run for the Roses. If you include him in your exotics, you could be looking at a colossal payday.
