The 2022 Kentucky Derby takes place on Saturday, May 7 at Churchill Downs. Taiba and Epicenter are 5-1 co-favorites in the 2022 Kentucky Derby odds, followed by Messier (7-1) and Zandon (8-1), and Mo Donegal (8-1). Before locking in any 2022 Kentucky Derby picks for the annual Run for the Roses, you 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 has been on-point with his horse racing bets. He hit the exacta in the Wood Memorial in April. Last year, he hit the exacta, trifecta and superfecta in the Belmont Stakes. This is the same handicapper who hit the Derby-Oaks double at Churchill Downs nine times in the last 13 years. That means he held a ticket with the winners of both the Kentucky Oaks and Kentucky Derby all but four times in his last 13 tries!
In addition, at one point in 2020, he picked the winners of six straight races: the Saudi Cup, Gotham Stakes, Rebel Stakes, Louisiana Derby, Florida Derby and Belmont Stakes. On Friday, he nailed the exacta in the 2022 Kentucky Oaks. Anyone who has followed him on these races is WAY UP.
For the 2022 Kentucky Derby, we can tell you Demling says Epicenter, one of the top favorites, barely cracks the top three! Another stunner: Demling is extremely high on Mo Donegal, even though he's almost a double-digit long shot! He's a target for anyone looking for a HUGE payday.
Demling is especially high on an evening bigger double-digit long shot who has "been training great at Churchill Downs" and is set to hit the board HARD! If you include him in your exotics, you could be looking at a COLOSSAL payday. You ABSOLUTELY need to see who it is before locking in any 2022 Kentucky Derby bets of your own.
