It's finally time for Kentucky Derby betting. In just a few short days, 20 of the world's best horses will participate in the 149th Run for the Roses and aim for eternal glory.

One of the alternate horses for this year's race is Cyclone Mischief. Here's everything you need to know about this Kentucky Derby alternate before he potentially vies for the 2023 crown.

Cyclone Mischief Kentucky Derby Odds and Post Position

Cyclone Mischief doesn't have any odds on him at the moment due to his status as an alternate participant. The talented colt would find his way into the race should any of the top 20 entries be pulled from the event, whether that's due to a trainer's choice or a potential drug test.

Cyclone Mischief's pole position will be determined by the horse that he would potentially be replacing.

Cyclone Mischief Kentucky Derby Prediction and Pick

Even if Cyclone Mischief finds himself replacing another horse, it's hard to have much faith in him. Romans has yet to win the Kentucky Derby while the colt's jockey is still unknown. There's also the fact that Cyclone Mischief has never placed better than third in five previous races. Although underdog stories are fun, it's better to fade him as an option this year.
