The 2023 Kentucky Derby, the most exciting two minutes in sports, will take place on Saturday, May 6 at Churchill Downs. The top 20 horses that have accumulated the most points in the Road to the Kentucky Derby have earned a spot in the 2023 Kentucky Derby field. Last year’s edition saw one of the biggest upsets in horse racing history, as Rich Strike took advantage of a late entry and won as a massive longshot. Are there any longshots worth targeting in your 2023 Kentucky Derby bets?
Forte is the 5-2 favorite in the latest 2023 Kentucky Derby odds, while Kingsbarns and Tapit Trice are 11-1. Other 2023 Kentucky Derby contenders include Derma Sotogake (13-1) and Practical Move (14-1). Before making any 2023 Kentucky Derby picks, be sure to see the horse racing predictions and futures bets from SportsLine’s elite horse racing expert Jody Demling.
A fixture in the horse racing world who has been writing about, talking about and betting on races for years, Demling enters the 2023 Kentucky Derby having nailed the winner of the Belmont Stakes four of the last fives years, including an exacta in 2022 with Mo Donegal and Nest. He also nailed Flightline’s win at the Breeders’ Cup Classic last November.
Demling is at his best in the biggest horse races in the world like the Kentucky Derby 2023. In fact, he has hit 10 of the last 14 Derby-Oaks doubles at Churchill Downs. That means he held a ticket with the winners of both races all but four times in the last 14 years. He’s also called nine of the last 18 Preakness winners, keenly understanding when the Kentucky Derby winner was poised for victory or a massive upset, and nailed the 2022 Preakness trifecta. Anyone who has followed him is up huge.
Now, with the 2023 Kentucky Derby futures already on the board, Demling is sharing his picks and predictions over at SportsLine. Go here to see them.
Top 2023 Kentucky Derby predictions
One of Demling’s surprising 2023 Kentucky Derby picks: He is fading Forte, even though he’s the top 2023 Kentucky Derby favorite and has won five straight races. Forte arrived at Churchill Downs from South Florida earlier this week following a 14-hour van ride from his winter base in Delray Beach. His resume includes wins in the Fountain of Youth and Florida Derby.
However, Forte’s Florida Derby triumph highlighted concerns, such as a lack of response to his rider on the second turn. He needed the stretch to find his high gear and get past a lackluster field, which could ultimately doom him against a loaded Kentucky Derby 2023 field. There are several quality 2023 Kentucky Derby horses sitting behind Forte in the odds, leaving him without much value at his current price, according to Demling.

Another stunner: Demling is high on Two Phil’s, even though he’s a long shot at 21-1. He’s a target for anyone looking for a huge payday. Two Phil’s trainer Larry Rivelli will make his first career Kentucky Derby start, but Two Phil’s ran five times as a two-year-old, winning three races including the Street Sense at Churchill Downs.
He followed that up by running in three Kentucky Derby prep races, finishing second in the Lecomte Stakes, closing well to take third in the Risen Star, and winning the Jeff Ruby Steaks with a blistering 101 Beyer Speed Figure. Sire Hard Spun finished second in the Kentucky Derby, third in the Preakness Stakes, fourth in the Belmont Stakes and second in the Breeders’ Cup Classic. Two Phil’s is a battle-tested horse with speed and an incredible pedigree at a bargain price, according to Demling. See which other horses to back at SportsLine.
