Everything you need to know about the race before it starts.

The Kentucky Derby in 2022, and the start of the Triple Crown, is just around the way. It will be an attempt to return to normalcy following the Covid epidemic, as well as controversy following the disqualification of Medina Spirit, the winner of the 2021 Derby, due to a positive betamethasone test. As a result of the test, trainer Bob Baffert has been suspended from Churchill Downs until the end of the 2023 Kentucky Derby.

This has a significant impact on the 2022 race. The absence of Baffert widens the field and makes the race truly competitive. It’s not so much that Baffert-trained horses always won, but rather that his presence was constant when it came to the Triple Crown, and horses from his stable were always in the mix to at least place.

Zandon is the overwhelming favorite in 2022, with odds of 3-1. Since beginning his career in late 2021, the three-year-old colt has been a force, and although only having four races under his belt, Zandon has never finished worse than third.

Zandon enters the Kentucky Derby in 2022 after a commanding almost-two-second victory in the Blue Grass Stakes in early April, where he defeated Smile Happy and Ethereal Road, both of whom are in the 2022 Derby.

Brown and Asmussen are still looking for their first Derby wins

Despite their immense success in the sport, veteran trainers Steve Asmussen and Chad Brown are still looking to add to their long list of Derby victories.

When Asmussen, 56, won his 9,446th race in 2021, he became the all-time leading trainer in North America. He has also won eight Breeders’ Cup races, two Preakness Stakes, and one Belmont Stakes. In 2016, he was inducted into the Hall of Fame.

In 2020, he surpassed Dale Romans as the trainer with the most career victories at Churchill Downs. Despite this, he has never won a Derby in his 23 attempts. In 2011, Nehro came in second, and Lookin at Lee followed suit in 2017. Curlin, the 2007 Horse of the Year, finished third in that year’s race. In 2016, Gun Runner, another horse of the year who is proving to be a stallion by siring this year’s entrants Taiba and Cyberknife, finished third.

Asmussen will have another great chance this year with Epicenter, the Louisiana Derby winner who is 7-2 on the morning line and might be the favorite by post time.

Asmussen laughed when asked if he was nervous this time. He stated, “Well, I’m not running.”

Brown, 43, is also familiar with Derby woes. Despite winning 15 Breeders’ Cup races and four years in a row as the Eclipse Award winner for outstanding trainer, he is winless in the Run for the Roses. His finest finish was in 2018, when he finished in second to Good Magic.

Zandon, who won the Blue Grass Stakes last month and is the morning-line favorite at 3-1, is Brown’s strongest opponent yet.

Brown’s victory in the Derby would be a fitting monument to his mentor, Hall of Fame trainer Bobby Frankel, who died in 2009 without having won the sport’s most coveted award.

Brown explained, “It was the one race that eluded him.” “It was on his mind late in his career. It would be an honor and a credit to him to win the race because he taught me everything.”

What to Look Out For in the Kentucky Derby in 2022

The absence of Bob Baffert provides an opportunity for trainers who have a desire to win the event.

LOUISVILLE, Kentucky — Bob Baffert isn’t at Churchill Downs this week, and his Barn 33, long the focus of Derby week, is strangely quiet, but as the 148th running of the Kentucky Derby approaches, the two-time Triple Crown winner isn’t forgotten.

Messier and Taiba, the colts he trained until the end of March, will be on the minds of casual viewers and horseplayers on Saturday, and will almost certainly be at the front of the group once the gates of America’s most renowned race open.

After Medina Spirit, the clear winner of last year’s Derby, failed a drug test and was disqualified, Kentucky authorities imposed a 90-day penalty on Baffert.

Tim Yakteen has taken over as the leading guy in the ongoing horse opera. He is a former Baffert assistant and a longtime buddy who is well-versed in the Hall of Famer’s method.

“It’s like a lottery ticket fell into my lap,” Yakteen, 57, explained, “and I’m simply trying to cash it in.”

This is his first Derby as a head trainer, which he admits will be both nerve-wracking and exhilarating. Messier and Taiba are front-running horses with comparable styles who will be ridden by Hall of Famers — Messier with John Velazquez and Mike Smith on Taiba.

“I was expecting to keep a low profile,” Yakteen said, who was born in Germany when his father was in the military and relocated to the United States at the age of 18. “It’s possible that won’t be as simple as I had hoped.”

Messier (8-1 morning line) is the more experienced of the two, having won two stakes races and never finished worse than second. Taiba (12-1) is the most fascinating colt in the 20-horse field, as he is unbeaten.

He’s attempting to become the first horse to win the Derby after only two starts, a feat achieved only once previously, by a horse named Leonatus in 1883. Taiba stormed through Messier in the stretch to win the Santa Anita Derby by two and a quarter lengths in April, after winning his maiden race by more than seven lengths in March.

Derby organizers urge, “Let’s party!”

after two years of epidemic restrictions.
On Derby day, Churchill Downs usually accommodates over 150,000 people, but the pandemic has put a damper on the festivities the past two years.

In 2020, the Belmont Stakes, which is usually the final leg of the Triple Crown, was run in June, the Derby in September, and the Preakness, which is usually the second of the three races, was held in October. Fans were not permitted.

In 2021, they all returned to their regular schedules, but with a less amount of visitors. The Derby’s official attendance was 51,838 people.

There is no attendance limit this year, and no masks are necessary.

“We’ve always said that we’d follow whatever rules the state of Kentucky set,” said Tonya Abeln, a spokeswoman for Churchill Downs. “At this time, there are no capacity restrictions in restaurants or sporting facilities, no mask requirements, and no vaccination requirements.”

One popular modification from last year has reappeared, albeit with a hefty increase in ticket prices: all seats now include unlimited food and drinks, a move designed to eliminate lineups and money exchange. (Fans in the infield will remain confined and must pay $12 for a mint julep, however a paddock makeover slated for the 150th Derby should bring back the standing-only ticket option.

Last year, vendors freely roamed the aisles, handing out drinks, and there were no queues for anything, including the restrooms. “Isn’t this fantastic?” was a recurring refrain repeated around the grounds.

“We got such a positive response from our guests in attendance that we decided to expand the all-inclusive experience to our full-capacity event this year,” Abeln added.
