LOUISVILLE, Ky.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/2019kentuckyderby?src=hash” target=”_blank”gt;#2019kentuckyderbylt;/agt;–US Racing (www.usracing.com),
an international online horse racing service, today announced the updated
odds
of the 145th Kentucky Derby following the scratch of
the favorite, Omaha Beach.

Omaha Beach was diagnosed with entrapped epiglottis after a cough and
scope, according to trainer Richard Mandella.

“This is a game changer and we express our deep sorrows for Mandella and
all his connections,” said Kevin Turnbull, Director of Operations at US
Racing. “Per the rules of racing, all entries will shift gates inward
and Bodexpress will run from Gate 20. For Roadster, this means he is no
longer in Gate 17—the only gate to have never produced a Kentucky Derby
winner,” said Turnbull.

“Will Bob
Baffert
make a call to Mike
Smith
? Big Money Mike won the Triple
Crown
with Justify. Bob and Mike have history. But it’s anybody’s
guess who will ride Roadster. Either way, I’m looking forward to a
wonderful and exciting race card on Saturday.”

The world will be watching the “Greatest 2 Minutes of Sports” on NBC and
getting all the action with US Racing.
