Written By Brett Gibbons | Last Updated
West Saratoga horse

West Saratoga is a horse with some of the most experience in the Kentucky Derby hopeful field. However, he lacks the true top-end results, placing him as a longshot among the 2024 Kentucky Derby odds. Last time out, West Saratoga nudged out of a crowded field, running behind Endlessly in the Jeff Ruby Steaks (GIII), finishing second. Those points were enough to slot him in the 150th Run for the Roses likely. We’ll need to see a major improvement during the derby for West Saratoga to be considered a contender truly.

Below, we will discuss everything you need to know to bet on West Saratoga in the upcoming Kentucky Derby.
