2020 Kentucky Derby Results

Bob Baffert did it again. Despite being pegged as the third-favourite on the 2020 Kentucky Derby odds board, the Baffert-trained colt Authentic set the pace in the field of 15 horses and held on to the finish line. He is the 23rd horse to win the Kentucky Derby wire-to-wire—a feat that was made a little easier with the extra four months of prep.

The result took the majority of horse bettors by surprise. The heavy favourite on the Kentucky Derby 2020 odds board, Tiz the Law stalked the frontrunners up until the mile-mark, at which point, he dueled with Authentic for a thrilling quarter-mile. Unable to overtake the Kentucky-bred colt, Tiz the Law finished second by 1 ¼ length. Mr. Big News finished third in his first graded race podium placement.

  2. Tiz the Law, Barclay Tagg
  3. Mr. Big News, Bret Calhoun

With no Triple Crown candidate this year, the Preakness Stakes should be more competitive come Saturday, October 3. Early odds are available right now in our sportsbook, and this time, it’s Authentic topping the Preakness Stakes betting market at +150.


2020 Kentucky Derby Payouts

Bob Baffert supporters who picked Authentic for the win were well paid with +800 fixed odds (+1000 if you got in before the morning line). He was the third pick on the Kentucky Derby betting odds board and did garner a fair amount of betting action. Payouts went down to +275 for place bets and +150 for show. Tiz the Law, who failed bettors that picked him for the win, came through for place bets at a chalky —300 and show bets for —500. The biggest bucks came from any prognosticators who selected Mr. Big News for the show, which paid out handsomely at +1200.


Road to the 2020 Preakness Stakes: Preakness Odds and Contenders

What’s the next step for Tiz the Law? According to his trainer, he may skip the Preakness in order to stay fresh for the Breeders’ Cup Classic in early November. But if he does change his mind, he’s available for a steal right now at +500—tied with fourth-place Kentucky Derby finisher, Honor A.P. Above them are the top two horses on the Preakness Stakes odds board: Authentic (+150) and Art Collector (+350).

When Art Collector’s owner Bruce Lunsford told the press that the colt had to bow out of the Kentucky Derby due to a foot injury, he said he’s hoping to have the horse back to health in time for the Preakness Stakes. That would make him an intriguing bet, as we still have yet to see him in a grade 1 event.
