The 2016 Kentucky Derby winner is still to be determined but as of now there are three clear frontrunners. The Run for the Roses has often been called “The Most Exciting Two Minutes in Sports” for a very good reason- as few things are more breathtaking than 20 odd thoroughbreds charging into the final turn of the race. And after last year’s winner American Pharaoh became the first Triple Crown Winner in 37 years, public enthusiasm for the race has never been higher.
2016 Kentucky Derby Winner – Nyquist
Nyquist is currently ranked as the odds on favorite and expect his price to to be about 10/3 at race time barring injury. How good is this horse? Well he has raced in seven races and has come in first seven times. This includes four Grade 1 races which means that this is an elite level thoroughbred. If things continue as is, this son of Uncle Mo will have a very good chance to win the Kentucky Derby while still at a price to generate a decent profit.
Which Horse Will Win the 2016 Kentucky Derby – Exaggerator
Exaggerator’s name is no hyperbole as this horse has the right stuff to win at Churchill Downs. The two year old thoroughbred does not have as many wins as Nyquist, but he is coming off a huge Grade 1 Stakes victory at the Santa Anita Derby where he beat fellow Kentucky Derby challengers Mor Spirit and Danzing Candy. Although the horse to beat will undoubtedly be Nyquist, Exaggerator will most likely go off about 8/1 which is a price with a lot of value.
2016 Kentucky Derby Winner – Gun Runner
There might be a little more debate about my third choice with many thinking Mohaymen is the better horse. However, Gun Runner has an extremely high thoroghbred rating by those in the know. Although Gun Runner’s racing pedigree to date is a little more mixed, he has two 1st place Grade 2 finishes in his last two races and the feeling is that Gun Runner is rounding into Kentucky Derby form. And at 10/1 Gun Runner might be my “dark horse” pick for the 2016 Kentucky Derby Winner.
