The 150th Kentucky Derby will run on Saturday with 20 horses competing to reach the winner's circle. This year's Florida Derby winner, Fierceness, is trained by Todd Pletcher and enters the weekend as a 5/2 favorite.

The mint juleps will be flowing and the hats will be as wacky as ever when the fans reach the grounds of Churchill Downs on Saturday. Fans and celebrities from across the globe make their way to Louisville on the first Saturday in May every year to witness this incredible spectacle and this year is no different.

Pletcher has won the Eclipse Award as horse racing's top trainer eight times, and he will have Fierceness ready to go when the horses fire out of the starting gate on Saturday evening. Pletcher already has two Kentucky Derby winners on his resume (Super Saver in 2010, Always Dreaming in 2017).
