The 2019 Kentucky Derby is set for Saturday, which makes Friday somewhat like Christmas Eve for sports bettors.

The Derby, which takes place annually at Churchill Downs in Louisville, Kentucky, is one of the great traditions in sports. Widely known as “the fastest two minutes in sports,” the race is quick but thrilling following an entire day worth of previews and small-profile races.

There is one horse who is a scratch. If you were planning to bet on Haikal at 30-1, you’ll have to look elsewhere. Haikal will miss the Derby with an injury to his left hoof.

Even if you had Haikal, don’t despair over this news. Win or lose, the Derby is always a great time. So, pour out some bourbon and enjoy the race.

May the best horse win!
