As most online sports betting site players are aware, there is no golden avenue that horses can or must take to get to the Kentucky Derby and win but over the last several years, there were a few things that were common to most of the Derby heroes.

The spacing between the final prep and when the Kentucky Derby was run has fluctuated a bit but not much.

The last 9 Derby winners had been off from 21 to 42 days before succeeding the first Saturday in May.

Nine different trainers have won this race during this time span and only 2 horses had run out of the money in their last race before the Derby.

Giacomo had run 4th in the Santa Anita Derby, but came from 18th and 14 lengths off the lead to win the Derby and paid $102.60.

Mine That Bird did Giacomo one better. He was 4th in his final prep, the Sunland Derby, but then he blew up the tote. In 2009 Mine That Bird was 12th and 7 lengths off the league before getting up to win and pay $103.20.

Last year Orb came out of a victory the Florida Derby and 34 days later won at Churchill. He was 16th and 10 lengths off the lead after a half mile of the Derby.

In 2011 Animal Kingdom also was coming off a win, but that victory came in the Spiral Stakes before he was 10th and 6 lengths off the lead before success in the Derby.

Two years ago I???ll Have Another parlayed a win in the Santa Anita Derby to Kentucky glory. He was 6th, 6 and a half-lengths off the lead a half-mile into the Derby before exploding to score and pay $32.60.

Six of the last 7 Kentucky Derby winners have had just 2 preps as sophomores. This will probably be a moot point after Keeneland tears up it???s synthetic track but only 2 horses since 2007 went from the synthetic to the dirt track and Churchill and won the Derby.

Going into last year, the average winning odds in the last 50 years in the Kentucky Derby was 13-1. Orb last year went off a 7-2.

Before 2013, the average $2 exacta payoff in the last 50 years was a juicy $772. The highest exacta was over $9800 and the lowest was the $15.20 when Sunday Silence beat Easy Goer in 1989.

Last year, the Orb/Golden Soul exacta paid $981.60.

Things change every year, obviously, but for online sports betting site players that are looking for a life changing score, the superfecta is the place to be.

Last year, the Orb keyed $2 superfecta paid $57,084.

Before last year and since 1996 the average superfecta paid $98,864 and the highest was $864,253.

This is one reason that horsemen, fans, bettors and casual players all get Derby Fever.

This race is not for the meek and mild, it???s for the adventurous player that is not afraid of winning big.
