Kentucky Derby bet online wagers will probably have Big Brown on a lot of tickets for the 2008 Kentucky Derby.
While Big Brown may be a popular online Kentucky Derby betting choice, history is against him. Let’s consider a few factors about a Kentucky Derby bet online wager on Big Brown.
Kentucky Derby bet online gamblers that risk money on Big Brown will want to be aware of a few things. Big Brown began his career at Saratoga a won as a longshot in a 10 horse field. Two weeks later a majority interest in the horse was purchased by IEAH Stables and Richard Dutrow took over as the trainer. Big Brown has only had two races since, an allowance race at Gulfstream Park that he won by 12 3/4 lengths, and the Florida Derby, which he won by five lengths in wire to wire fashion. That is the good news for Kentucky Derby bet online gamblers that like Big Brown. The bad news for Kentucky Derby bet online gamblers begins with understanding that the Florida Derby was a very weak race with no contenders. History is against Big Brown in Kentucky Derby bet online gambling because rarely does a horse win without having run an April prep race. The Florida Derby was in March. Big Brown has only raced twice as a three-year-old and horses with less than 3 races at three years old just don’t win in online Kentucky Derby betting.
Big Brown has another big knock to overcome in Kentucky Derby bet online wagering and that is his trainer. Dutrow has never had a Kentucky Derby horse so no one knows much about him in terms of making a Kentucky Derby bet online. This may not be as bad as it sounds though in online Kentucky Derby betting, as Dutrow has won three Breeders’ Cup races, including the 2005 Classic with Horse of the Year Saint Liam.
One more negative that may not be able to be overcome in the Kentucky Derby is that Big Brown is very likely to be the Kentucky Derby bet online favorite. Most horse racing fans know that the Kentucky Derby bet online post time favorite is almost always a loser. Only three times in the last 27 years has the Kentucky Derby bet online post time favorite won the race. So, yes Big Brown is going to be a popular online Kentucky Derby betting choice but he may not be a winning one.
