Long shot bets for the Kentucky Derby

In horse racing, everyone wants to find the long shot to win the Kentucky Derby. Remember this long shot victory?

Mine That Bird at 50:1

Mine That Bird was a +5000 longshot to win the Kentucky Derby, which is one of the biggest longshot wins in the history of the Derby. Will there be another long shot this year?

Here are our long shot picks for the 2021 Kentucky Derby:

  • Medina Spirit (+1400)
  • Midnight Bourbon (+2200)

Medina Spirit’s price is 14:1, which isn’t a huge longshot but with heavy favorites such as Essential Quality the price of +1400 is worthwhile. Medina Spirit is a sleeper choice to win the Derby because a few of his losses have come by the hand of a horse that is unable to race in the Derby in Life is Good. In addition, Medina Spirit has placed in the top two in each of his races, is trained by Bob Baffert, and has a great record on these types of tracks. He is our top long shot play for this race.

Watch Medina Sprit run, here.
