NBC Horse Racing Analyst Bob Neumeier joined the Norris & Davis Show to preview Saturday’s Kentucky Derby. This will be the 139th running of the Derby and this years early favorite is Orb who is starting with 7-2 odds.
Steve asked about the possibility of rain and how that affects the Derby. Bob said he didn’t figure in how a sloppy track will affect the horses. Bob thinks don’t need to worry too much about the track conditions if you’re betting.
Bob asked about Bob Baffert not having a horse at the Kentucky Derby. Neumeier says that yeah that is true, but Baffert believes he has the horse who will win the Preakness.
Steve asked which horse he has the winning the race. Bob told him he has a number of horses he is looking at. A couple of them are Orb, the favorite, and Verrazano, who is the 2nd on the odds, and Itsmyluckyday is another horse he really likes.
