For those interested in betting on the Derby, it's worth looking into the horses with longer odds, such as Mystik Dan, Honor Marie, and Resilience, as they could provide a good return on investment if they happen to win.

This year's race has a variety of horses, from favorites to long shots. Fierceness, with trainer Todd Pletcher and jockey John Velazquez, is expected to go far. Velazquez has won the Kentucky Derby three times already, in 2011, 2017, and 2020.

Sierra Leone and Catching Freedom are also expected to give Fierceness a run for his money. Sierra Leone has never finished below second place in his four races and has won three of them. Catching Freedom, meanwhile, is trained by 2021 Derby winner Brad Cox and ridden by 2019 Derby winner Flavien Prat.

As for sleepers, or long shots, to win the 2024 Kentucky Derby, Honor Marie has a decent chance of at least making it onto the podium. His trainer, D. Whitworth Beckman, is from Louisville and has never before had a horse race in the Kentucky Derby.

Ultimately, the race is bound to be exciting, with plenty of action from start to finish. The Kentucky Derby is known for its excitement and pageantry, and this year's 150th running should be no exception!
