The Kentucky Derby is the most popular horse race of the year. With so many contenders, you NEED to hear what legendary horse racing handicapper Richard Eng has to say before placing any 2019 Kentucky Derby picks of your own.
Eng was the turf editor and handicapper for the Las Vegas Review-Journal for 20 years and literally wrote the book on wagering on the sport. In fact, he was the author of "Betting on Horse Racing for Dummies," the preeminent book for newcomers. Prior to his work for the Review-Journal, Eng worked as a publicist for the New York Racing Association, Garden State Park, Monmouth Park, Santa Anita Park and Turfway Park.
To say that Eng was all-in on Justify early last year would be a massive understatement. He picked Justify when that horse was a HUGE 100-1 long shot in the Kentucky Derby Futures Book in January, before the horse made his racing debut. He picked Justify to win all three Triple Crown races, cashing big each time. Anyone who has followed Eng's lead is WAY up.
Now, Eng has releasing his Kentucky Derby picks, revealing his analysis for every horse and where every single one finishes.
One HUGE shocker: Eng is fading Roadster, one of the race co-favorites at 7-2. The Bob Baffert-trained colt won the Santa Anita Derby, but that was his only race at this length. Now, the jockey who has ridden Roadster to victories in the past, Mike Smith, has elected to instead ride Omaha Beach. There are far better values than the 6-1 premium you'll need to pay for him.
Instead, Eng is all over an under-the-radar horse who looks a lot like Justify did leading up to last year's Kentucky Derby. This horse has all the tools to put together a complete run and win the 2019 Kentucky Derby. If the horse hits as Eng expects, you could be looking at a MASSIVE payday.
