Every year the world of horse racing is agog with the Kentucky Derby being an important part of the calendar. This pivotal event excites a lot of interest and a betting bonanza, enough to make many people want to know what the best possible horse betting picks are.
Thankfully, one man seems to have the answers more often than not. Jody Demling is a SportsLine tipster whose track record has promoted him to the very top of horse racing betting fandom and whose insights have helped many bettors turn a profit themselves.

Why Do His Kentucky Derby Picks Matter?
Who is this man and why do fans call him legend of horse betting? Demling’s track record is no joke. He successfully called 14 winners of the Triple Crown race and he followed up with back-to-back winners repeatedly.
Demling predicted that Big Brown, I’ll Have Another, California Chrome, American Pharoah, and Justify will all win the Kentucky Derby, but also win the second race of the Triple Crown as well – and they did.
More impressively still, he was successful in nine out of the last 11 Derby-Oakes doubles held at Churchill Downs, predicting the winners with enviable accuracy. To put this in perspective, Demling’s picks failed to clear only twice in the past 11 races, which already makes the man a legend.
Other Notable Picks
Demling’s speciality is everywhere. Aside from Kentucky Derby predictions, his Preakness Stakes and Belmont Stakes picks have been just as accurate, posting a great overall score and establishing his legacy as a top tipster.
He has done an excellent job turning a $1 superfecta bet on the Pegasus World Cup into a $678 payout. Furthermore, Demling managed to top the Robert B. Lewis Stake with another superfecta and he successfully foresaw War of Will winning Risen Star Stakes in February 2019.
Here are some of his most recent successful picks:
- An exacta bet in the Wood Memorial
- Trifecta in the Santa Anita Derby
- Superfecta in the Blue Grass Stakes
- Exacta, Trifecta/Superfecta in the Arkansas Derby
All of these are just a taste of Demling’s successful career as a sports insider and horse racing aficionado. With the Triple Crown peaking around the corner, there is a whole lot of events going down in the 2020 horse racing world.
