Workouts for the 2015 Kentucky Derby get underway at Churchill Downs on Tuesday morning. The 20-horse field will be set Wednesday with the 2015 Kentucky Derby draw at 5:30 PM ET on NBC Sports Network.
Expected atop the field are American Pharoah and Dortmund, two highly-touted 3-year-olds who have been trained by legendary trainer Bob Baffert, a three-time winner under Churchill Downs’ famed twin spires.
The favorite to win the 2015 Derby is American Pharaoh and rightfully so. Pharaoh has not lost since competing in his first race and blew the field away to win by eight lengths in the Arkansas Derby the last time out.
The undefeated Dortmund was sired by 2008 Derby winner Big Brown, who became the first horse since 1929 to win the Kentucky Derby out of No. 20 position.
Also expected among the field’s favorites is Carpe Diem, trainer Todd Pletcher’s Blue Grass Stakes winner. Hall of Fame jockey John Velazquez, who won this same race in 2011 atop Animal Kingdom. Velazquez likes the growth Carpe Diem continues to display each time out, too, per Jennie Rees of The Courier-Journal.
“He’s learned a lot. Being a 2-year-old, he was very high energy at all times: before the race, in the post parade. He used to get really worked up. In his last race at Keeneland, he did really, really well,” Velazquez said. “Only thing was in the paddock he got a little excited. Once I was on him, he relaxed.”
The 141st Kentucky Derby posts at 6:24 PM ET. NBC will provide live coverage, including its usual human-interest storytelling. NBC will also air live coverage of the undercard races from Churchill Downs, beginning at noon on NBC Sports Network. The coverage will then switch to NBC at 4:00 PM ET.
Widely-respected veteran jockey Victor Espinoza will be atop American Pharoah at Churchill Downs looking to get back in the winner’s circle after coming up short atop the favored California Chrome a year ago.
