Kentucky Derby odds will not have Chocolate Candy as the favorite on Saturday but the horse is going to get some attention, particularly since the owner is Jenny Craig.
Chocolate Candy is a horse that does have a chance in Kentucky Derby betting, not just because of a famous owner. Here is a look at Kentucky Derby odds for Chocolate Candy.
Kentucky Derby odds show that Chocolate Candy will probably go off in the range of 10-1. Kentucky Derby odds information tells us that the horse is the son of Candy Ride. This will be the first time that Jenny Craig will be attending the Derby without her husband Sid, who died last year. The Craigs have had no success in previous Kentucky Derby odds results as they finished seventh, last and next to last. “We bought the horses right before the Derby and that should have been a red flag for us,” Craig said, “The fact that the horses were available to us should have told us that our chances were slim. But it was one of Sid’s dreams to win the Derby and at that time we were not really heavily into breeding. So our only hope was to be able to purchase a 3-year-old in training and, of course, that’s what we did when we purchased those horses.”
This year Chocolate Candy is a serious Kentucky Derby odds contender. The horse was the runner-up to Pioneerof the Nile in the $750,000 Santa Anita Derby and the added distance of the Derby could give Chocolate Candy a chance in Kentucky Derby odds. “I think we have a better chance this time than we ever have, I really do,” Craig said. “When I look at the pedigree of this horse, I think he has the talent and I’m hoping that he’ll have enough in the tank and be able to pull it off.”
The two favorites in Kentucky Derby odds figure to be I Want Revenge and Pioneerof the Nile but Chocolate Candy has proven he can run with those horses and have a chance to win in Kentucky Derby betting. Taking him at double-digit Kentucky Derby odds could prove to be attractive for gamblers in Kentucky Derby betting.
Kentucky Derby odds history tells us that pedigree has proven to be important in the past in Kentucky Derby betting and it could be again this year. Kentucky Derby odds will show Chocolate Candy as a longshot but not without a chance.
