2019 Kentucky Derby: Payouts, Betting Results

The 2019 Kentucky Derby is shaping up to be one of the more interesting races in recent years.

With odds-on favorite Omaha Beach scratched from the race on Wednesday and long-shot contender Haikal scratched early on Friday, the Derby will feature just 19 horses instead of the usual 20.

Replacing Omaha Beach as the favorite to win is Maximum Security at 9-2, he is followed by Tacitus and Improbable, both at 5-1 odds, and Game Winner at 6-1.

The post time favorite in 2017, Always Dreaming, and 2016, Nyquist, also took home the wins in the Run for the Roses.
