My favorite time of the year is here! Kentucky Derby time! You can win more money on this race alone then you could all year betting sports. This year it is finally wide open and NO WAY the favorite will win this race. We all know Classic Empire will get the most money just because the Empire Maker bloodline. McCraken will be 2nd choice but with the combo of Jockey Hernandez and Trainer Wilkes will be tough to beat these other Hall of Famers in this race. So I scratched those two out right off the bat to go for the Big Money. One thing I looked at was 8 of the last 11 horses that won the derby won their last race. I am going to follow that here.


Here is what I came up with after days of researching the horses and trends and if you BET NOW you get a 50% bonus on your Kentucky Derby Bets:


#8 HENCE 15-1

I like this horse just because Trainer Asmussen has two other horses here and got stuck with the 1 position with Looking at Lee and we all know the 1 position is the worst for the derby. Also he is a Top Trainer and jockey Geroux, in my eyes is one of the best young guns, was chosen for this horse over Looking at Lee and Untrapped. That tells me this is the Best horse in his barn, he also won his last race easily going way and this horse is getting stronger and stronger. Many say he has not run against the best yet and is out classed. I say the horse has no idea about classic and at this age he just keeps improving!

One of Pletchers three horses in here. He is very impressive winning his last 3 going away. He gets Top Jock Johnny V that won the last 3 on him. He was the fastest horse in his last race posting a 1:47 at 1 1/8 mile. I do not like when trainers have more that 2 horses in the derby because they seem desperate but this horse is by far his best. Be care this speed demon might run to fast and set it up for another one of Pletchers horses to close and win at Huge Odds #16 or #20.

Another speed horse that has posted the fastest speed figures 2 of his last 3 races. The only thing that is holding me back from making this horse my Top Play is Trainer Graham and Jockey Maragh are not the Best Combo and I love Top Jocks with Top Trainers. If this horse can get a clear lead he can be very tough!



Honorable Mentions

bet now

Other Top Trainers that win consistently daily and can Pop at a Price are #9 Irap with Trainer O'Neil, #11 Battle of Midway with Trainer Hollendorfer, and #19 Practical Joke with Trainer Brown. I have all of these 3 in my exotic bets looking to take home a Pretty Penny!!!!!



Let's Hit a HUGE Superfecta and have an early retirement Ladies and Gentelman!!!!!
