Kentucky Derby Live Stream 2016: Watch Churchill Downs Horse Race Online!
The 2016 Kentucky Derby is taking place on Saturday, and Gossip Cop has a live stream!
The 142nd annual running of the Kentucky Derby will have 20 thoroughbred horses galloping around the track at Churchill Downs in front of thousands of spectators, including a number of notable celebrities. The favorite to win this year is Nyquist, with jockey Mario Gutierrez. The 3-year-old horse previously won the Breeder’s Cup Juvenile race last fall.
While Nyquist has 2-1 to odds of pulling off another victory today, there’s a few other horses that could make it a tougher race. It’s no exaggeration to say Exaggerator stands at 5-1 odds, while Gun Runner is at 10-1. Gossip Cop can’t help but have a soft spot for the horse named Suddenbreakingnews, but at 24 to 1, he’s likely to fall into the middle of the pack.
Whichever horse wins, he’ll be following in the footsteps (hoofsteps?) of American Pharoah, who later made history by becoming the first Triple Crown winner since 1978. His jockey, Victor Espinoza, is competing again this year, and stands to take home his fourth Kentucky Derby victory. But his odds with horse Whitmore are only 30 to 1.
Post time for the Kentucky Derby is approximately 6:34 p.m. Eastern.
