The 146th running of the Kentucky Derby will be held tomorrow. The Derby is normally the 1st of the Triple Crown races. The first race this year was the Belmont Stakes which Tiz the Law won. The Preakness Steaks will be held on October 3, 2020. The Derby will be held with no fans attending. It will be a very interesting Derby due to a lack of fans.
Tiz the Law is the favorite with odds of 6-5. His trainer is Barclay Tagg. His jockey is Manuel Franco. A lot of people are betting on Tiz the Law. He is entered at No. 17.

His trainer is Bob Baffert and his jockey is John R Velasquez. Bob Baffert is one of the greatest trainers to ever walk the Earth. He has 2 Triple Crown winners. Justify and American Pharoah both won. American Pharoh won in 2015 while Justify won in 2018. Baffert's horse could win, but Tiz the Law must win to keep his chance to capture the Triple Crown. A lot of experts think that Tiz the Law won't win. Expect a very great race.
