Although Dennis’ Moment is the current offshore betting favorite for the 2020 Kentucky Derby, he is hardly perfect. Dennis’ Moment flopped in his last start at the Breeders Cup Juvenile on November 1, 2019. In that grade one race, Dennis’ Moment finished a very disappointing eighth place as Storm The Court took the wire. In view of that failure Dennis’ Moment’s next race on February 29, 2020, at the grade two Fountain of Youth will be a critical tell. Trainer Dale Romans has his best shot for his first blanket of roses.
Storm The Court
Following that Breeders Cup Juvenile win, Storm The Court is now a co-favorite to win the Kentucky Derby. Prior to defeated Dennis’ Moment at the Breeders Cup, Storm The Court finished third at the grade one American Pharoah Stakes. His next start is slated for February 1, 2020, at the grade three Robert B Lewis.
Yet another Breeders Cup winner has emerged as a Kentucky Derby Horse betting favorite. Structor was the winner of the grade one Breeders Cup Juvenile Turf. Trainer Chad C. Brown has a Preakness Stakes win on his resume from 2017. Only a win in the Kentucky Derby will be able to top that thrill. For this purpose, Structor has a record that inspires confidence. On September 28, 2019, Structor won the grade, three Pilgrim, at Belmont Park.
Namely, Bob Baffert is a trainer that draws gambling money with any horse that he enters. Baffert entry Eight Rings is, therefore, a target for many Kentucky Derby gamblers. Eight Rings was a considerable disappointment in the grade one Breeders Cup Juvenile where he finished in sixth place. However, before that failure, Eight Rings was the winner of the grade one American Pharoah Stakes on September 27 at Santa Anita. Baffert is a Hall of Famer with the most impressive credentials. To show he has five Kentucky Derby wins and two Triple Crown championships.
Cause by his win in the grade one Breeders Cup Futurity does Maxfield rate a lot of gambling action. Maxfield has won both of his career starts. But that Breeders Cup triumph is seen by many gamblers as a tale about the potential value on Derby Day.
Tiz The Law
At first Tiz, the Law may be ignored for not running at the Breeders Cup. Counter to that is his win at the grade one Champaign on October 5, 2019.
