Kentucky Derby wagering on the 134th annual Kentucky Derby will take place on May 3rd with exciting Kentucky Derby betting options
Recently in Kentucky Derby wagering there have been full fields of 20 horses in the Kentucky Derby and that should be the case again this year.
Kentucky Derby wagering is oftentimes unpredictable but it can be profitable. The 2008 Kentucky Derby will likely have Big Brown as the favorite with Pyro and Colonel John attracting money as well. Although Big Brown is likely to be the Kentucky Derby wagering favorite he does have some strikes against him. First, he will likely be the Kentucky Derby betting favorite which is the kiss of death. Favorites just don’t win the Kentucky Derby. Second, Big Brown will come into the Derby having raced only three times in his career. That is another huge minus against him. He was very impressive though in the Florida Derby and many experts that look at Kentucky Derby wagering were very impressed.
Kentucky Derby prep races are where the contenders separate themselves from the pretenders for future Kentucky Derby wagering. Big Brown and Colonel John have already established their credentials with wins and it is expected that Pyro will do the same. Those three horses are the top Kentucky Derby betting choices. Every horse in Kentucky Derby wagering usually has plusses and minuses. It is getting a good trip and having the potential to win that makes for a winner in Kentucky Derby wagering. Colonel John has some history on his side as he is the son of two time Breeders’ Cup Classic winner Tiznow. The minus against him in Kentucky Derby wagering is that he has been racing on artificial surfaces in California and now must race on the dirt at Churchill Downs. A couple of horses that will be a part of Kentucky Derby wagering that don’t look strong are Tale of Ekati and War Pass. They both lost their Derby preps and don’t look like they can handle the distance of the Derby.
Kentucky Derby wagering gives you a great chance to make money. Enjoy Kentucky Derby betting as a full field of 20 horses battling their way for glory on Saturday, May 3rd.
