I wanted to know for sure. PPs 1, 2, 6, 9 fared very well historically, but haven't won recently in many years. PP 18 won, but horse #18 has NOT won ever!
@kaitlinefree1 Thank you so much! There have been many situations when the horses were shifted. That's why there are statistical differences between horse #s and PPs.
Will the horses maintain the post positions, OR they'll be shifted one spot to the left?
Why the duplicate post? I only posted once… I hope there is no scratch so that the PPs and program #s will be the same.
The trifecta 13-6-4 has not hit STRAIGHT in the last 21 races (since 1990). See saliu com /kentucky-derby-winners html Are this year the posts positions the same as the program numbers?
The most frequent pool of numbers based on the last two periods of time (38 races since Secretariat and last 21 races): 2 – 4 – 5 – 6.
I’ve done it! I have the complete statistical analysis of the Kentucky Derby (136 races). It shows the wins by PROGRAM NUMBER, regardless of position, and position by position (top 3 finishers). I know it’s not allowed to post clickable links her. You can just go to saliu com horseracing-stats html Best of luck on Derby Day! Ion Saliu
I meant BEGINNING 1990s = 21 races. There are 38 races since Secretariat.
The best straight trifecta of all time: 1 (win) = 23 times; 5 (place) = 23 times; 3 (show) = 22 times. The best straight trifecta last 21 races (since Secretariat): 6 (win) - 5 (place) – 2 (show).
goblin: I work with PROGRAM NUMBERS (for betting), not post positions (PP). Rarely they coincide. In 1982, the top 3 program numbers were 11-7-15.
