Nyquist Favorite to Win Today's Kentucky Derby: The Kentucky Derby is being run today at Churchill Downs in Louisville. The race begins at 6:34 p.m. EDT after four hours of coverage on NBCSN from noon to 4 p.m. and NBC pre-race festivities from 4 p.m. The favorite after the first day of betting is No. 13 Nyquist at 2-1, who could become the first unbeaten juvenile champion since Seattle Slew in 1977. No. 11 Exaggerator was the 5-1 second choice, followed by #5 Gun Runner (9-1). USA Today has the odds for all 20 horses.

I'm putting $5 of fake SpoFi cash down on the exactor:

Win: Exaggerator
Place: Nyquist
Show: Majetor

I'm not sure how I could misspell Majesto quite so badly and not notice...

I figured Majetor was a Mexican horse who was not a big fan of Mothers Day (or other things mother-related, for that matter).

I thought it might have been due to an overabundance of Ontairo Mint Jupels
