Handicapping Tips: Kentucky Derby 2011 - Post Positions

 

You can't Win the Kentucky Derby in the Post Position Draw but many horseman believe you can lose it at the Post Position Draw.. In today's Video I break down the value of Post Positions in the Kentucky Derby. I also discuss the 3 different racing styles of horses and what style isbest suited to win the Kentucky Derby..

Below is a chart that represents the number of Kentucky Derby Winners by Post Position. Although #1 post has won the most Derby's it is no longer the best place to be and is explained in today's Video. Note that Kentucky Derby didn't always have the large fields that it has today. In fact over the history of the Kentucky Derby the average field size has been 12.46 and there was even 2 years that there was only 3 horses entered. So when looking at the chart below the inside post positions will have more wins just because they have had way more starters.
