Kentucky Derby 2023: How to Watch, Expert Picks

Hoppert: This speedy son of the 2018 Triple Crown winner Justify lost by a neck in the Blue Grass Stakes last month, and he’ll have Gaffalione, who owns nine Churchill riding titles, on his back.

Trainer: Larry Rivelli Jockey: Jareth Loveberry Odds: 12-1

Drape: An intriguing colt who has raced well in Virginia, Louisiana, Minnesota and Kentucky. This well-traveled sort has a big shot.

Hoppert: He won the Jeff Ruby in March by an impressive five and a quarter lengths, but that was on a synthetic track. Still, he has won on dirt and at Churchill. A question mark, but I’m certain about one thing: His apostrophe is unnecessary.

Trainer: Keith Desormeaux Jockey: James Graham Odds: 20-1

Drape: This colt cost a bargain basement $25,000 and has made nearly $800,000. He loves the slop, so if you bet him, pray for rain.
