For the first time in recent history there is no real dominant horse atop the Kentucky Derby odds as the race date fast approaches. Instead there are a number of top horses that could challenge for the title, firmly positioned at the head of that group is Friesan Fire.
2009 Kentucky Derby betting enthusiasts are salivating at the prospect of watching this three-year Run for the Roses. He has it all and looks to be one of the top horses in this year’s Kentucky Derby odds. Coming in at around 6:1 odds in most of the 2009 Kentucky Derby betting lines this horse also has plenty of hype heading into the May 2nd showdown at Churchill Downs. There is no doubt he has the talent to win, but will the expectations and pressure of being one of the 2009 Kentucky Derby betting favorites be too much for horse, rider and trainer.
Owner Fox Hill Farms and Vinery stables have entrusted Friesan Fire’s training to one of the best in the business in Larry Jones. Jones seems to be a Derby Specialist and the Kentucky Derby odds makers have taken notice. Riding atop Friesan Fire is up and coming jockey Gabriel Sanz who often collaborates with Jones and will do so again in the 2009 Kentucky Derby betting. Saenz also knows Churchill downs as he rode Eight Belles to a second place finish there last season.
He’ll have a very strong steed with Friesan Fire who not only has great pedigree but one of the most impressive track records of the field in the run up to the 2009 Kentucky Derby betting. Sired by former Horse of the Year AP Indy, he inherits a load of stamina. His Grand sire is none other than Triple Crown winner Seattle Slew, making his bloodlines among the best in the 2009 Kentucky Derby betting.
But perhaps what’s most impressive is his record. Friesan Fire has run seven races in his brief career winning four of the starts and finishing in the money in six of the seven –among the best winning percentages in the 2009 Kentucky Derby betting field. The horse’s most impressive race was its most recent, winning the G2 Louisiana Derby by the largest margin ever against a packed field of 2009 Kentucky Derby betting contenders.
Friesan Fire is race favorite for a reason and definitely a horse to watch on May 2nd. Open an Account and start betting on Friesan Fire at SBG Global!
