The 2018 Kentucky Derby is set for May 5, but first we have to learn the full list of entries and their post positions. That information is learned via the post position draw, which is being held on Tuesday, beginning at 11 a.m. ET. Last year’s Derby winner, Always Dreaming, started from the fifth post position.
At the end of the day, there are so many factors that go into which horse will win, but the starting post is always a big consideration. The fifth post is one of the favorites among those with favored horses. California Chrome is the recent big-name horse who won from that spot. Gate 17 is the only one that has never seen a horse win from it in 143 years of racing. The three to the right of it have produced just one win each.
Classic Empire, the favorite in 2017, started from Gate 14, which has only produced two winners in history, and did not get the win.
This year’s favorites are Justify and Magnum Moon, horses that were not raced as two-year-olds. The so-called Apollo’s Curse refers to the fact that a horse who wasn’t raced as a two-year-old also hasn’t won the derby since Apollo did it all the way back in 1882. It was also a much, much different race back then.
Many believe Justify and Magnum Moon, fresh off wins in the Santa Anita Derby and Arkansas Derby, respectively, can break the curse. We’ll see what post they’ll get on Tuesday.
