Before locking in any 2021 Kentucky Derby bets, you NEED to see what longtime 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 enters the 2021 Kentucky Derby after a blistering run in 2020: At one point last year, he picked the winners of six straight races: the Saudi Cup, Gotham Stakes, Rebel Stakes, Louisiana Derby, Florida Derby and Belmont Stakes.
This is the same handicapper who hit the Derby-Oaks double at Churchill Downs nine times in the last 12 years! That means he held a ticket with the winners of both the Kentucky Oaks and Kentucky Derby all but three times in his last 12 tries.
He opened last season's Triple Crown schedule on a heater too. At last year's Belmont, Demling said Tiz the Law was clearly the class of the field, and Barclay Tagg's horse pulled away for a convincing victory. Anyone who has followed him has seen some HUGE returns.
While a slew of horses could hit the board in the 2021 Kentucky Derby, Demling is highly confident in a small group, isolating them for his exactas, trifectas and superfectas! He's especially high on two HUGE UNDERDOGS who are being overlooked! You ABSOLUTELY need to see who they are before locking in your picks.
