  • BookMaker.eu The 2020 Kentucky Derby might not have fans or the same atmosphere you would see in early May, but millions at home will be cheering on the Run for the Roses.

  • BookMaker.eu Some gamblers may have short memories when it comes to the Kentucky Derby. While Tiz the Law is getting all of the headlines and public betting love the fact remains that longshots winning the Run for the Roses is not at all uncommon. Consider last year as a prime example.

A closer look reveals that longshot winners at Churchill Downs are not at all uncommon. Mine that Bird was a 50/1 winner in 2009, Giacomo was also a 50/1 victor in 2005, while Charismatic paid at 31/1 in 1999. As crazy as 2020 has been, a longshot Derby winner would only make sense in a year that makes no sense at all. ...
