via Kentucky Derby 2018: Post positions and odds for the first race of the Triple Crown – AOL News

The race for the Triple Crown begins this Saturday at Churchill Downs with the running of the Kentucky Derby.

20 horses will take to the track in the “Run for the Roses,” with the winner taking home well over a million dollars in addition to their prize of potential immortality should they go on to win the Belmont Stakes and the Preakness to complete the Triple Crown.

On Tuesday, post positions for the race were drawn. Last year, Always Dreaming won out of post five, and horses closer to the rail have performed better historically than those forced to start from the outside, but winners have come from all across the track.
