Kentucky Der Betting – Bet on The LongShots
Article by Drin Team
I am glad on how Kentucky Derby 2012 is turning into. There’s no clear favorite for Saturday’s Kentucky Derby, which means you can expect big payouts no matter which horse wins the race – Saturday’s race could pay astronomical prices. And for that being said, I think it’s time for people to look into longshots for their Kentucky Derby Betting.
Sometimes the best racehorse to bet against at a racetrack is the favorite. That may sound strange since we know that favorites win about a third of the time, but if you want to make money at Kentucky Derby betting then you can’t be betting favorites every race, you need to pick some longshots. Remember last year? Only a few at Churchill Downs, or anywhere though that Animal Kingdom will win. Animal Kingdom was unproven, untested and a long-shot in every sense of the word, but sometimes it’s the unknowns that surprise. Will that be the case on this year’s Kentucky Deby too?
If you feel it will be, then let me help you with your longshots bet. Here are three live, longshots for the 138th Run for the Roses:
Alpha (+1500): Trained by Kiaran McLaughlin, this one was banged at the start of his last race but still rebounded to finish second to Gemologist in the Wood Memorial. Alpha has solid bloodlines, he’s out of Bernardini, and has three wins and two seconds in six lifetime starts. His best Beyer speed figure is 98, which is actually pretty strong for this field. His worst start was an 11th place finish in the Breeder’s Cup Juvenile, which featured a bunch of Derby entrants. That result will certainly keep Alpha’s odds pretty long. McLaughlin hasn’t picked a jockey yet but Rajiv Maragh worked him Saturday and he was the fastest colt over 5 furlongs on the day.
Take Charge Indy (+1500): The AP Indy colt will be ridden by Calvin Borel. That’s good enough reason for a couple of shekels right there. Add in the fact that he won the Florida Derby at 7-1 beating Union Rags by more than a length and it’s clear this horse has some speed. Borel won the 2009 Derby on Mine That Bird at 50-1. Take Charge Indy’s won’t be that high but with 20 horses in the field he’ll probably try to set the pace.
Daddy Long Legs (+3000): If all the true contenders come out of the Breeder’s Cup Juvenile then Daddy Long Legs certainly fits the bill. Although he was 12th in the race he went off at a respectable 11-1. Trained by Aidan O’Brien, this colt went on to win the Grade II UAE Derby at 1 3/16 miles in Dubai. He’s won three of five races lifetime and his relative obscurity to the American racing fans is sure to keep his odds quite long. The son of Scat Daddy would make quite a story if he won this race. Scat Daddy was injured in the 2007 Kentucky Derby and forced to retire from racing. He’ll try to win this one for dad.
I hope you will consider these three long shots when doing Kentucky Derby betting. Who knows? With a touch of luck, these long shots will be your key to win.l be your key to win.
