The Kentucky Derby is finally here, even after a four-month hiatus and massively reduced fanfare.
The big story from Churchill Downs this week is Tiz the Law, the winner of June’s Belmont Stakes by four lengths who enters as the odds-on favorite to win the second leg of the Triple Crown. Adding to the intrigue of this race is the fact Tiz the Law on Tuesday was placed in the No. 17 position, which is the only position that has produced no Kentucky Derby winners.
Adding to the peculiarity of Saturday’s race is the fact it will be run without spectators — so, no celebrity who’s who, no outlandish wardrobes and no mint juleps. Will that result in a less-enthusiastic race in 2020? Not among bettors at least, who will be watching Tiz the Law closely as the race approaches.
