How Many Florida Derby Winners Have Gone on to Win the Kentucky Derby?

When you make your Kentucky Derby bets this year, consider the ultimate winner of this race.

The Florida Derby winner has gone on to be victorious in a sick two dozen Kentucky Derby races between the years 1953 and 2017.  It is a record that remains unequaled by any other Kentucky Derby prep race.

A Bit About the Florida Derby

Distance    1+1⁄8 miles (9 furlongs)
Surface    Dirt
Track    Left-handed
Qualification    Three-year-olds
Weight    122 lbs (55.3 kg)
Purse    $1,000,000[1]

Forte the Odds-on Favorite

Forte is listed as the 4-5 favorite but would likely be at even shorter odds if not for having to overcome the outside post.

“It’s a tremendous disadvantage statistically and a shame post can play such a significant factor in such an important race,” the colt’s Hall of Fame trainer, Todd Pletcher, told the Daily Racing Form.

Forte is also the favorite to win the Kentucky Derby.
