It was just three years ago that Giacomo won at online Kentucky Derby betting odds of 50-1. 2008 Kentucky Derby betting odds will have a number of longshots.
Kentucky Derby betting for the 134th running of the Kentucky Derby gets underway on Saturday, May 3rd. One of the online Kentucky Derby betting longshots in the race will be Gayego with jockey Mike Smith. It was Smith that rode Giacomo to the upset win in 2005 Kentucky Derby betting. Gayego is similar to Giacomo in that the horse is based in California. Unlike Giacomo, the horse was given his final prep in the Arkansas Derby which he won over Z Fortune. The problem for Gayego could be his breeding as his Dosage numbers don’t indicate he will like the distance of a mile and a quarter. Runner-up Z Fortune could be a horse that does and he will be another interesting Kentucky Derby betting longshot.
Online Kentucky Derby betting longshots will be plentiful in the race because it is likely only three horses will go off at Kentucky Derby betting odds of less than 10-1. Those three are likely to be Kentucky Derby betting favorite Big Brown, Colonel John and Pyro. Any other horse in the online Kentucky Derby betting field could be considered a longshot. That could tell you that the 2008 Kentucky Derby betting field overall is weak but it could also tell you there are a lot of big prices to be had.
Kentucky Derby betting odds are likely to have Big Brown at about 3-1 followed by Colonel John at 5-1 and Pyro at 7-1. The horses in Kentucky Derby betting with odds between 10-1 and 20-1 are probably going to be Z Fortune, Adriano, Court Vision, Denis of Cork, Eight Belles, Gayego, Monba, Recapturetheglory and Tale of Ekati. Real longshots in Kentucky Derby betting are likely to be Anak Nakal, Big Truck, Bob Black Jack, Cool Coal Man, Cowboy Cal, Z Humor, Smooth Air, Visionaire and Z Humor.
