The ongoing coronavirus pandemic has led to lots of changes for Saturday's 2020 Florida Derby card at Gulfstream Park. One thing that has not changed, however, is #7 Tiz the Law (6-5) being an overwhelming favorite on the morning line for the 2020 Florida Derby odds.

Among the changes for the 2020 Florida Derby is a purse lowered from $1 million to $750,000. The change in purse is the result of the lack of spectators that have been allowed at Gulfstream Park, leading to a reduction in on-track handle.

Jockey Javier Castellano testing positive for the coronavirus sent shockwaves through the horse racing world Thursday. The popular Castellano was set to ride #10 Candy Tycoon (20-1) Saturday in the Florida Derby. Although Candy Tycoon faced long Florida Derby odds, Castellano was pulled from all of his mounts Saturday at Gulfstream Park.

Tiz the Law won the Grade 3 Holy Bull at Gulfstream Park last time out on Feb. 1. With Manny Franco aboard, Tiz the Law is a legit frontrunner to win the Kentucky Derby. 

The Florida Derby horses most likely to beat the favorite according to the Florida Derby odds are Fountain of Youth winner #12 Ete Indien (4-1) and Sam F. Davis runner-up #9 Independence Hall (9-2).
