Horse racing analyst discusses upcoming Kentucky Derby

News

EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) – the 145th running of the Kentucky Derby is sure to be a good one, especially given some last-minute changes.

The favorite, Omaha Beach, has been scratched with a breathing condition that requires surgery, leaving a wide open field.

As KTSM previously reported, Cutting Humor won this year’s Sunland Derby on March 24.

“He is a long shot, he’ll have to run better than he’s ever run before in his life, but I think he’s got an outside chance to get a piece of this,” veteran horse racing analyst Tom Dawson tells KTSM.

Catch the Kentucky Derby right here on KTSM 9 starting at 12:15 p.m.
