You can bet the 2020 Florida Derby this weekend with odds that have Tiz The Law favored at EVEN.

 

The Florida Derby is a critical Kentucky Derby prep race.  This year's Kentucky Derby will take place Labor Day weekend due to the coronavirus pandemic that has been gripping the entire globe.  The Florida Derby will not have spectators as a result.  Horse racing is one of the few sports still taking place.

The Florida Derby has featured a $1 million purse dating back to 2001.  It is run on 1 1⁄8 miles (9 furlongs) of dirt.

HorseRacing Nation provided this analysis of the favorite:

Post Position 7. Tiz the Law, 6/5 (Constitution – Barclay Tagg/Manuel Franco – 4: 3-0-1): After winning the Champagne Stakes (G1) in only his second start, Tiz the Law disappointed backers with a third-place finish in the Kentucky Jockey Club (G2). In that race, he did not appreciate the pocket position and was discouraged in the stretch when an opening came up. But in his return start in the Holy Bull, Franco gave an interesting ride by taking up along the back stretch in order to tip Tiz the Law into the clear. The tactics helped, and he fired by challenging Ete Indien on the far turn and proving the better horse. He could fire again, but note the gap his work tab between Feb. 10 and March 2 due to a foot bruise. In addition, he also tries nine furlongs for the first time, and bettors are often advised to play against a heavy favorite trying something new. Win contender.
