Kentucky Derby 2024: Society Man Horse Racing Profile

Written By Brett Gibbons | Last Updated
society man horse

Society Man is a horse probable for the 150th Kentucky Derby after finishing second in April’s Wood Memorial (GII). He’s a true longshot among the 2024 Kentucky Derby odds, closing with the longest odds in the most recent futures pool, but his last two starts have been Society Man’s best yet. Was the Wood Memorial finish a lucky break or a sign of things to come? Brisnet’s speed figures were unconvinced about the showing and Society Man would really have to pull out a never-before-seen 1 1/4 miles to hit the board in this year’s Run for the Roses.

Below, we’ll examine everything you need to know to bet on Society Man in the upcoming Kentucky Derby.
