The Kentucky Derby is an interesting race from a betting perspective. More money is bet on it than any other North American race, and many casual bettors make the Derby their only horse racing bet of the year. But it is also probably the hardest race of the year to handicap. These are young, inexperienced horses running further than they have ever run before and further than many will ever run again. They are running in the biggest field of the year in North American racing and in front of a very large, very loud and very drunk crowd. There is so much chaos and so many things that can go wrong.
