LOUISVILLE, KENTUCKY – APRIL 30: Scenes from the Post Position Draw for the 145th Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs in Louisville, Kentucky on April 30, 2019. Scott Serio/Eclipse Sportswire/CSM

We’ve had our hands full in the Watchandwager office this week so I didn’t have time to do full race write-ups, but these are my top three selections for all of the Stake races on Kentucky Derby Saturday.
