There is only one position that has never produced a winner at the Kentucky Derby.

The Kentucky Derby takes place Saturday, May 5 at Churchill Downs and it will be the 144th running of the Race for the Roses.

Justify is this year's favorite at 3-1 odds and will be running out of the seventh gate. Following Justify with the next best odds to win the Derby are Mendelssohn at 5-1, Magnum Moon at 6-1, Bolt d'Oro and Audible at 8-1 and then Good Magic and Vino Rosso at 12-1.

The use of a starting gate position has only been around since 1930, so not every winner is accounted for in this list.

The Kentucky Derby will air on NBC from 2:30 p.m. through 7:20 p.m. ET. The main event race is set to begin at 6:34 p.m. ET. Viewers will also be able to stream the race on the NBC Sports App.
