Resilience is an aptly-named horse who closed a 99-1 longshot in April’s 2024 Kentucky Derby odds futures pool. He’s steadily improving throughout his three-year-old racing stretch, winning two of his last three starts, including the Wood Memorial (GII). Against a Kentucky Derby field filled with pedigree and champion racers, resilience will be needed to pull another major upset in the 150th Run for the Roses.

Below, we’ll review everything you need to know to bet Resilience in the upcoming Kentucky Derby.

The Word On Resilience

April 7: Closed a 99-1 longshot in the Kentucky Derby futures pool 6 ahead of his win at the Wood Memorial

April 18: Finished his five-furlong gallop workout in 1:02.80 — ahead of Just F Y I (1:30.40)

“I thought (Resilience) had a great trip in the Wood Memorial,” trainer Bill Mott said. “I thought Johnny (Velazquez) rode him great.
He might have gotten a little jammed up on the first turn but got clear down the backside. When he asked him, he responded and he
finished up well. The best part is he looked good visually.”

Apr. 27: Opened at 20-1 on the morning line, running out of Post 19.
