Good morning and Happy Derby Day! The 148th Run for the Roses is going off today, and it looks like the weather is going to be pretty cooperative. That’s a good thing considering that this is the first “normal” Derby in two years.

Zandon is the favorite today, but he’s not overwhelming. Here is the ultimate Derby 148 betting guide so that you can be as hooked while making all of those bets at your local Derby party or if you’re out at the track today.

It’s a pretty great day to be a Kentuckian. Good luck and have fun!
