2022 Rebel Stakes Betting Lines, Predictions & Picks (02/26/2022)

2022 Rebel Stakes Betting Lines, Predictions & Picks (02-26-2022)

At the onset of the year, horse bettors were pointing to the Rebel Stakes as one of the top Kentucky Derby prep races. And there is plenty of good reason for the importance of the Rebel Stakes. Since the 2010s, the Rebel Stakes has produced an average of 2.3 starters per year with the Kentucky Derby Odds. And it should come as no surprise that Bob Baffert is the most successful trainer at the Rebel Stakes in recent years. Between 2010 and 2020, Baffert led seven horses to the winner’s circle at the Rebel Stakes.

2022 Rebel Stakes SBG Odds Overview

On this occasion, Barber Road will be one of the top sportsbook choices of the betting public. So too is Chasing time going to draw plenty of handle after a recent win. And then bargain hunters may consider Dash Attack, Ben Diesel, and Texas Red Hot. Ethereal Road, Un Ojo, and Rich Strike will also draw interest. On the whole, the 2022 Rebel Stakes offers unrivaled parity.

Barber Road

John Alexander Ortiz trained Barber Road as a top contender for the 2022 Kentucky Derby. Barber Road has a total of over $239,000 in career earnings. Last time out on January 29, 2022, Barber Road finished 2nd in the Grade-3 Southwest Stakes at Oaklawn Park. It was the third consecutive 2nd-place finish for Barber Road. Previously on January 1, 2022, Barber Road finished 2nd in the Smarty Jones from Oaklawn Park. On November 27, 2021, Barber Road finished in 2nd-place at the Lively Shirley at Churchill Downs.

Chasing Time

Steve M Asmussen is one of the most respected trainers in horse racing. Thus, that makes Chasing Time a favorite for many horseplayers on Saturday in the Rebel Stakes. The last time out for Chasing time was an allowance win at Oaklawn Park on January 14, 2022. The win was 1-mile in length. On December 17, 2021, Chasing Time finished in 2nd-place in a 6-furlong allowance race at Oaklawn Park. And then Chasing Time won a 7-furlong race at Churchill Downs on November 27, 2021.

Dash Attack

Also featuring a top trainer is Dash Attack under Kenneth G McPeek. Dash Attack is best known for his win at the 1-mile Smarty Jones on January 1, 2022, at Oaklawn Park. However, Dash Attack finished a disappointing 5th-place in the Grade-3 Southwest Stakes from Oaklawn Park.

Ben Diesel

The last time out for Ben Diesel was a 3rd-place finish at the Grade-3 Southwest Stakes on January 29, 2022. It was the fourth consecutive race that Ben Diesel failed to win. Dallas Stewart trains him.

Texas Red Hot

Following two wins last year, there was hope that Texas Red Hot could emerge as a Kentucky Derby favorite. Instead, he is coming off a terrible 10th-place performance in the Grade-2 Kentucky Jockey Club. That race took place at Churchill Downs.
