This Year’s Derby Will Be One To Remember!

This year is unlike most for horse racing enthusiasts.  Every time there is a horse that appears to be on the verge of becoming the “clear-cut Derby favorite”, that horse ends up getting beat.

It happened yesterday at Oaklawn Park in the Arkansas Derby.  “The Factor” was sent off as the 8/5 favorite, and was solidly beaten.  That has happened in recent weeks in Florida, New York, Kentucky, Arkansas, Illinois, and California.

What is going to make this summer really fun for us bettors, is the absolute lack of that one dominant horse.  All three Triple Crown Races this summer should be very competitive, especially the Kentucky Derby on May 7th.  There will be a full 20 horse field – it is very possible that the winner of this race could go off at odds better than 20/1.  The favorite will be a luke warm 3/1 or 4/1.  Some will say that’s great odds for a favorite.  I say it’s a sucker bet.

Check the history.  In American horse racing, the favorite wins @ 30% of the time.  For the entire history of the Derby – the favorite wins @ 12%.

I’ve got my Derby horse – but I can’t give him to you just yet.  Stay tuned, though, it will be profitable – I promise.
