After a several month hiatus of top quality Grade 1 Stakes racing the Kentucky Derby odds are a welcome sight for most sports fans. And one of the horses listed in those odds, Win Willy, has intrigued a many horse wagerer.
2009 Kentucky Derby betting men have made Win Willy a 30/1 favorite in most if the online betting lines. That makes him a very firm middle of the pack horse positioned perfectly to take the Kentucky Derby odds by storm. Owned by Jer-Mar Stables, Win Willie is the Minnesotan-based stable’s best shot at the Derby crown.
Trainer Mac Roberston is no stranger to winning races and will hope to extend his excellent winning percentage into the 2009 Kentucky Derby betting as well. His horses have won an astonishing 34% of the races they enter and finish in the money 72% of the time –albeit against much lesser competition than what Win Willy will see in the Kentucky Derby odds competition.
Over his past three starts Win Willy has made quite a name for himself in the run up to 2009 Kentucky Derby betting. He ran at Oaklawn in February winning his first race of the year, but against a weak field his victory hardly measured on the 2009 Kentucky Derby betting radar.
However, he entered his next race at Oaklawn in March and made an impression that no 2009 Kentucky betting guru has forgotten since. A 56-1 long shot before the race started, no one expected Win Willy to even place in the money. However, after overwhelming favorite Old Fashioned jumped out to a big lead he ran out of steam and Willy kept coming. He won by 2 ¼ lengths going away and more or less secured himself an invite to the 2009 Kentucky Derby betting.
In his last start, the G2 Arkansas Derby in mid-April Win Willy finished a disappointing 4th place, somewhat tarnishing his 2009 Kentucky Derby betting hopes. But the big grey horse could be a wild card in the Run for the Roses. He runs well on dirt, his preferred surface and as the son of the great Monarchos he certainly has the blood lines. He likes to run from behind and depending on where he’s positioned in the later turns he could make one heck of a dramatic finish at Churchill Downs this year. Win Willy looks to be a legit dark horse contender.
