The 147th Kentucky Derby – sponsored by Woodford Reserve Kentucky bourbon – is a Grade I stakes race at a distance of 1 1⁄4 miles (2km). The race will be broadcast by NBC in the States, with coverage of the undercard races by NBC Sports Network. The stands hold 165,000 but attendance will be limited to 45,000 this year.
Rock Your World and Essential Quality are the runaway favourites, but noted tipster Hammerin’ Hank Goldberg claims Dynamic One could be the ultimate long shot. At 20-1, you’re either going to end up celebrating with a mint julep or losing your shirt.
Meanwhile, world heavyweight boxing champion Tyson Fury says he plans to attend Churchill Downs on Saturday to cheer on a horse named in his honour, King Fury.
“I’m going to walk the horse out, of course I am,” Fury told Sky Sports. “How badass would it be, you own a horse and the Gypsy King, Tyson Fury, the undefeated, undisputed lineal champion is walking your horse into the arena?”
More of a Seinfeld fan? You might consider backing Soup and Sandwich at 30-1.

How to watch the 2021 Kentucky Derby abroad using a VPN
Even if you have subscribed to the relevant 2021 Kentucky Derby rights holders, you won’t be able to use them when outside your own country. The service will know your location based on your IP address, and will automatically block your access.
A Virtual Private Network (VPN) helps you get around this obstacle. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, such that the servers and services you’re accessing aren’t aware of what you’re doing. All the information passing back and forth is entirely encrypted.
There are many VPN providers out there, with some more reliable and safe than others. As a rule, we’d suggest a paid-for service such as ExpressVPN which offers a 100 per cent risk-free money back guarantee. If you’re not happy with the service any time within the first 30-days, then you can cancel with no penalties at all.
