The fastest two minutes in sports comes back this weekend and it will definitely be a great race this year. Now this year the Derby does have several horses that are heavily favored in the race here, but even then the odds are stacked against the favorite who will face some of the best horses in the nation this weekend.

Known Agenda is one horse who definitely has an agenda in mind in this race here. However, Known Agenda is a horse that will be matched when it comes to the speed here in this race and that could make it difficult for the horse to run as the jockey has had to swing him outside to run down the other horses and in the Kentucky Derby the horses will be able to match his break away speed and keep him shoved inside. 

Hot Rod Charlie is coming in as another favorite to win the race here. However, since running in the Louisiana Derby and winning it, Hot Rod Charlie has not raced. The other two races for Hot Rod Charlie was a 3rd place finish in the Robert B. Lewis Stakes and 2nd in the TVG Breeders’s Cup Juvenile. Still the extended time off since racing in March could keep Hot Rod Charlie out of the winning spot.

Free Horse Racing Pick:

Medina Spirit 15-1

Medina Spirit is coming from the training of world famous horse trainer Bob Baffert. He is also being ridden by John R. Velazquez. That combination will definitely help the Medina Spirit horse in running fast. Not to mention Medina Spirit has looked good on the tracks with a 1st and 2nd finish in a grade 3 race, a second place finish in a grade 2, but also a 2nd place in the Santa Anita Derby which is a grade 1 race. Look for Medina Spirit to continue to improve on the year and bring home the win in the Kentucky Derby. Kentucky Derby winner prediction, Medina Spirit.
