Previewing the field in the 143rd Kentucky Derby

Want to place a bet on the Kentucky Derby this weekend, but don't know anything about the field?

David Kaplan was on In The Loop to preview the race which he says has no clear favorite. Classic Empire and Always Dreaming are among the favorites based on current odds, but are not clear cut favorites.

Kaplan says a longshot has a chance in this race because of how wide open it is. Watch the video above to see more from Kaplan on the Kentucky Derby including his pick.
