Cyberknife Kentucky Derby Odds and Post Position
Cyberknife currently has 20-1 odds to win the Kentucky Derby in 2022. That makes him the 7th favorite in the entire field. Cyberknife drew the 16th post position for the Derby, which could end up being favorable.
Cyberknife Horse Trainer and Jockey
Cyberknife is trained by Brad Cox. Cox finished 2021 by establishing a single-season North American earnings record for a trainer with over $31.8 million, and he received his second consecutive Eclipse Award as Outstanding Trainer. Florent Geroux previously rode Cyberknife at the Arkansas Derby, finishing 1st place in April.
Cyberknife Race History
Cyberknife has a career record of 6 starts, 3 wins, and 2 second place finishes. He comes into the Derby with 100 total Kentucky Derby points, placing 7th in the leaderboard. Cyberknife also placed 1st at Fair Grounds in February.
Cyberknife Prediction and Pick
Cyberknife has a very accomplished trainer looking for his first “true” Kentucky Derby win. Horse racing fans will remember last year that the Kentucky Horse Racing Commission issued a ruling disqualifying Medina Spirit from first place in the 2021 Kentucky Derby. This elevated Brad Cox’s Mandaloun as the winner. With a Equibase Speed Figure of 100, Cyberknife is 20-1 odds favorite and should have the aggressiveness to finish among the top of the Kentucky Derby field. Some may choose to go for it all with a Win bet, but he’s also a smart Win-Place-Show bet for those wishing to hedge their risk.
