2019 Triple Crown Betting Odds & Picks

Written by on April 9, 2019

While both, avid and casual horse racing fans have witnessed two thoroughbreds complete the historic Triple Crown in two of the last four years, including 2018, the likelihood of it happening again is infinitesimal at beast. That’s right horse racing bettors, with just 13 horses pulling off the Triple Crown since Sir Barton first accomplished it way back in 1919, clearly, completing the legendary feat is one of the most difficult tasks in all of sports, and MyBookie brings you our odds and picks for 2019 Triple Crown.

2019 Triple Crown Betting Odds & Picks

Having said that, winning the Triple Crown is also clearly not impossible, seeing as how Justify stunned the horse racing world by winning all three legs of the Triple Crown last year and American Pharoah doing the same back in 2015. Now, with the first leg of the Triple Crown set to get underway in less than a month, horse racing bettors everywhere need to know which thoroughbreds stand the best chance of winning the Triple Crown in 2019. The 2019 Kentucky Derby takes place May 4 at Churchill Downs in Louisville, Kentucky.

My Top 8 Picks To Pull Off The 2019 Triple Crown 

 Maximum Security

Maximum Security has never been beaten in four races, including three as a three-year-old this year alone!


Tacitus is unbeaten in three straight races, including two races as a three-year-old this year and he’s trained by Hall of Fame trainer Bill Mott.


Roadster made a big jump up the odds board by going from an 18-1 pick to the prohibitive favorite after winning the $1 million Santa Anita Derby this past Saturday to improve to 2-0 as a three-year-old. Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert will have Roadster in contention at the Kentucky Derby and almost certainly at all three Triple Crown races.


Improbable went 3-0 as a two-year-old in 2018 and he finished second in Race 8 at the Rebel Stakes in his race in mid-March. Again, I fully expect Bob Baffert to have Improbable in Triple Crown contention.

Omaha Beach

Omaha Beach finished third in his maiden race as a two-year-old in 2018, before recording a trio of second place finishes a year ago. After taking second place in his maiden race as a three-year-old, Omaha Beach has won each of his last two races and has the look of a horse that will challenge in all three Triple Crown races.

Game Winner

Game Winner is another Bob Baffert-trained mount that won four times as a two-year-old and claimed the 2018 Breeder’s Cup Juvenile and the Eclipse award for 2-year-old colts. Game Winner has finished second in both of his races this year as a three-year-old, but he’s never finished out of the money, so there’s that.


Vekoma has three wins and one third place finish in four career races, including a huge win in his last race in the $1 million Blue Grass Stakes at Keeneland this past Saturday. Three wins in four races says Vekoma will challenge.


Anothertwistafate had his three-race winning streak snapped by finishing second in his last race at Sunland Park, but he’s got some decent triple Crown longshot value in my opinion.
