Saturday's Florida Derby caps off an exciting 2024 South Florida route to the Kentucky Derby and is one of 10 Stakes races on the fascinating Gulfstream Park card.

We took the Betmix Angler online handicapping database for a spin for some Florida Derby insights & trends and found that the Last Turn Time handicapping factor has pointed to around one-third of the winners of the past 45 9-furlong graded dirt events at the Hallandale oval. And the Win Return is a whopping $101.20!

The sample includes 5 recent Florida Derby champs, including the double digit winner Known Agenda ($12.80) in 2021, as well as last year's runner-up Mage.
