Justify Can’t Shake Mendelssohn in Odds for 144th Kentucky Derby
It’s anything but clear sailing for Justify at this year’s Kentucky Derby. After briefly taking the lead at 3/1 on the horse racing futures market, Justify has slipped back to 4/. Once again making him the co-favorite with Mendelssohn.
Audible has improved from 13/2 to 6/1. Magnum Moon (8/1), Bolt d’Oro (9/1) and Good Magic (11/1) round out the top contenders for Saturday’s big race.

Justify was the talk of the town after an impressive 7-furlong workout at Santa Anita Park. With so many horses putting in quality performances on the Road to the Kentucky Derby, the Bob Baffert-trained colt is anything but a sure bet.
Mendelssohn is something of an enigma, though. He’s been preparing in Ireland with trainer Aidan O’Brien, and might not work at Churchill Downs until Thursday. That is if the horse clears quarantine first.
Bettors looking for a dark horse have flocked towards Hofburg at 16/1. He put in his final workout Sunday morning at Churchill Downs. The son of three-time leading sire Tapit only has one graded stakes under his saddle. He finished second to Audible at the Grade 1 Florida Derby.
Hofburg has the earmarks of a must-add for Kentucky Derby trifectas and superfectas.
