Kentucky Derby predictions for the biggest long shots

Remember that all 2 year old horses must start as 3 year olds on January 1st, regardless of their real birthday. This gives older horses an edge. In fact, Country House, which was promoted for the first time after Maximum Security was disqualified in 2019, and Authentic, which won the newly configured 2020, are the only horses to contest the Kentucky Derby with birthdays in April or later since the current one was launched Points system in 2013 won Derby in September. This year’s favorite, Essential Quality, was born in April.
