2009 Kentucky Derby odds fans are no doubt beside themselves picturing a perfectly manicured Churchill downs on May 2nd.
On that date the anticipation of this year’s Kentucky Derby betting will come to a head and the biggest horse race in the world will get underway. And that means that a horse named Hold Me Back will also get its chance to make its mark on the 2009 Kentucky Derby odds.
2009 Kentucky Derby odds makers like this horse. With 30:1 odds on most of the 2009 Kentucky Derby odds sites this horse is definitely a contender. Positioned just outside the top pack of horses Hold Me Back is a horse that Kentucky Derby betting fans should keep their eyes on. He’s in perfect position to make a run at the Derby crown but still has very attractive odds, unlike the top half-dozen horses.
Owners Bill Kasner and Kenny Trout are hopeful that they’ve got a contender on their hands and with the help of hall of fame trainer Bill Mott they just might. Hold Me Back is not your typical 2009 Kentucky Derby odds contender. With a strong European lineage and racing background he has not taken a common route the 2009 Kentucky Derby odds competition. He started as dominating turf juvenile and then was thought to be a great miler. After dominating at that distance he was given a whirl on dirt where he also proved his versatility and earned consideration as a possible 2009 Kentucky Derby odds entrant.
But after a dominating run at the Lands End Stakes at Turfway and a very strong second place finish at the Blue Grass (his first real test on a fast dirt track before the 2009 Kentucky Derby odds competition), Hold Me Back became a legitimate contender. In just two years of racing he’s compiled a career winnings total of nearly a half a million dollars which could increase tremendously with a proper showing at the 2009 Kentucky Derby odds race.
The biggest knock on this horse had been his stamina at a mile and a quarter and his ability to run on dirt. But both of these doubts have been silenced with his work this year in his only two races in the run up the 2009 Kentucky Derby odds. With only two races under his belt this year some bettors might like to have a larger body of work to sample from. However, with veteran jockey Kent Desmoreaux on his back any lack of experience should be mitigated and this looks like the top outside horse to win the 2009 Kentucky Derby odds.
