Twenty 3-year-old horses will leave the starting gate in the 2022 Kentucky Derby on Saturday at Churchill Downs. Taiba and Epicenter are 5-1 co-favorites in the latest 2022 Kentucky Derby odds. Messier (7-1), Zandon (8-1), and Mo Donegal (8-1) are other top 2022 Kentucky Derby contenders according to oddsmakers.

With a talented, 20-horse field expected to enter the starting gate, you NEED to see what racing insider and Beyer Speed Figure maker Bob Weir has to say before making any 2022 Kentucky Derby picks of your own.

A Saratoga Springs-based racing insider and Beyer Speed Figure maker, Weir is a two-time qualifier for the prestigious National Horseplayers Championship in Las Vegas. He has produced multiple five-figure days at the track over the years, including a $60,000 Pick 6 at Del Mar in 2014. Last year, he was on fire. He hit the exacta in the Sam F. Davis Stakes, Tampa Bay Derby and Peter Pan Stakes, the trifecta in the Risen Star Stakes, Blue Grass Stakes and Pennsylvania Derby and the superfecta in the Belmont Stakes.

This year, he has been red-hot in the Kentucky Derby prep races, hitting the superfecta in the Blue Grass Stakes, the trifecta in the Louisiana Derby and exactas in the Fountain of Youth Stakes and Tampa Bay Derby. He also has hit the trifecta in the Pegasus World Cup and multiple Pick 4s, among other scores. Anyone who has followed him is WAY UP!

Now, he has handicapped the 2022 Kentucky Derby lineup, made his picks and constructed his bets.

One surprise: Weir is fading Zandon, even though he's the top 2022 Kentucky Derby favorite and impressively won the Blue Grass Stakes. Another shocker: Weir is high on Crown Pride, even though he's a big 17-1 long shot. "Considering how Japanese horses have been running during recent international competitions, he's hard to ignore," Weir told SportsLine.

Weir is all-in on a MASSIVE double-digit long shot who should be in "a dangerous position at the top of the stretch" and has a "big chance at a potentially great price." Weir is including this horse in his 2022 Kentucky Derby bets, and so should you. You ABSOLUTELY need to see his picks before locking in any of your own!
