LOUISVILLE, Ky-(April 30) – US Racing (, an international online horse racing service,  today announced the post positions and updated odds of the 145th Kentucky Derby to be held at Churchill Downs on Saturday, May 4th .

“While Game Winner, Roadster and Omaha Beach are very strongly backed by punters— there have been some large figures on Roadster and Tacitus,” said Timothy Maxwell of US Racing.  “However, Roadster drew post position 17 which has yet to produce a Kentucky Derby Winner.”

Over the past 5 years, the favorites have gone on to win the Derby but in 2019, Maxwell suggested that, “we see a lot of parity among these three year-olds.”  In fact,  many fans are looking forward to a match race between Roadster and Omaha Beach—which hopefully extend over the three races of the Triple Crown.

The world will be watching the “Greatest 2 Minutes of Sports” on NBC and getting all the action with US Racing.
