SportsLine’s Jody Demling has revealed his Kentucky Derby 2023 picks for Run for the Roses on May 6th.
Before the 2023 Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs, five horses have already been scratched, and there is hope for the remaining 18 horses to start in the early gates when post time comes at 6:57 pm. On Saturday, E.T. Morning-line favorite Fort was scratched on Saturday morning, shaking up the field for the 2023 Kentucky Derby. However, the race should continue, and there are hopes for the 149th Derby, with several horses trying to make it in despite being late.
Angel of Empire and Tapit Trice are now co-favorites at 9-2 in the 2023 Kentucky Derby odds. Angel of Empire trained by Brad Cox recently won the Arkansas Derby, while Tapit Trice comes out ahead of Todd Pletcher and arrives on a four-race winning streak, including a splendid victory in the 2023 Blue Grass Stakes.

Demling has been writing about and betting on horse racing for years in the world of thoroughbred racing, and he is at his best in the biggest race in the world, the Kentucky Derby 2023. In fact, he has hit 10 of the previous 14 Derby-Oaks doubles at Churchill Downs. That means he has successfully paired both winners in four of the previous 14 years. He has also picked nine of the previous 18 Preakness winners, as the Kentucky Derby champion was prepared to win or disrupt the contenders on a larger scale, and he denied the 2022 Preakness trifecta. Whoever has followed him has had a huge advantage.

Top Kentucky Derby 2023 Predictions
One of the surprising 2023 Kentucky Derby selections for Demling: he is fading Tapit Wise, despite being listed as a co-favorite at 9-2 in the 2023 Kentucky Derby odds. Another son of the great Tapit, Bluegrass Stakes winner Santorini’s Another, but Demling doesn’t like Tapit Wise’s chances in the Churchill Downs on Saturday. “Tapit Wise still has some improvements to make – especially mentally – to take on a field of 18 horses,” Demling told SportsLine.
Tapit Wise is one of three horses in the 2023 Kentucky Derby field trained by Todd Pletcher, who has a storied career but has only won the Kentucky Derby twice in 62 starts. Demling believes that Tapit Wise is better suited for shorter distances. Check SportsLine to see who else to avoid from the other 2023 Kentucky Derby horses.
Another contender: Demling is high on Dermot Sotogake at 7-1. He’s a target for someone looking for a big payoff. Based in Japan, his win time in the United Arab Emirates Derby raised eyebrows because it was the second-fastest time in 14 years when the race was run at its current distance.
Having ridden a Japanese starter in last year’s Kentucky Derby with jockey Christophe Lemaire, Dermot Sotogake may have enough experience to surprise on Saturday. Check SportsLine to see who else could come back in the mix.
