One that is sometimes ignored in Kentucky Derby betting is pedigree. It is a factor that can oftentimes determine the winner though as you make your Kentucky Derby bet online.
Kentucky Derby bet online odds are likely to favor I Want Revenge but that horse doesn’t have the best pedigree of the horses in the field. The one with the best pedigree could be Chocolate Candy. The sire of Chocolate Candy, Candy Rise was 6-6 in his career and Chocolate Candy’s damsire is 1977 Triple Crown winner Seattle Slew. His dam's mother, In Memory, is a half-sister Affirmed who was the last Triple Crown winner.
What has also worked recently in Kentucky Derby bet online history is a horse that has speed with the sire and endurance with the dam side. Big Brown, Street Sense, Giacomo and Smarty Jones all fit in pedigree and each won in Kentucky Derby betting. There are two horses that have that type of pedigree in Kentucky Derby betting. They are Quality Road and Dunkirk.
Elusive Quality is the sire of Quality Road and he sired Kentucky Derby bet online winner Smarty Jones. The grandsire of Elusive Quality is Mr. Prospector and his descendants have won eight of the last 14 Derbies for gamblers who make Kentucky Derby bet online wagers.
Dunkirk also has a strong pedigree that has Mr. Prospector in his sire line. Dunkirk also has Alydar on the female side. You can also trace Dunkirk’s pedigree to A.P. Indy who was the 1992 Horse of the Year. The one disadvantage that Dunkirk has is trainer Todd Pletcher who has never won in Kentucky Derby bet online history. Or perhaps Pletcher is overdue and Dunkirk will break the drought for gamblers who wager on him in Kentucky Derby bet online action.
Pedigree is an interesting handicapping factor to consider as you make a Kentucky Derby bet online. This year you really should give a serious look to Dunkirk, Chocolate Candy and Quality Road as you make your Kentucky Derby bet online. Dunkirk will have Edgar Prado in the irons and Prado was the winning jockey on Barbaro in 2006.
Kentucky Derby bet online odds are likely to see the favorite go off at Kentucky Derby betting odds of anywhere from 7-2 to 9-2 which means real value can be found this year.
