Kentucky Derby Preview For 2013

Posted by Brian Mulligan on 5/2/2013 7:09:31 PM

What: Kentucky Derby
Who: Orb (to win) (Key him first and second in the trifecta with Revolutionary, Verrazano, Goldencents, Normandy Invasion and Frac Daddy)
Where: Churchill Downs
When: Saturday, May 4

The Grade 1 $750,000 Kentucky Derby has drawn a field of dreamers, stalkers, speedballs, closers and legitimate contenders and hopefully online sports betting site players will be able to sniff out a winner and make some money.

Verrazano puts his unbeaten record on the line. He he got a solid 2-hole trip in the Wood when losing a bit of ground late but also not being asked for his all and running the final furlong in :12.55.

Verrazano’s half brother El Padrino won a Grade 2 going a mile and a sixteenth and was also 4th in the Florida Derby and Verrazano’s sire More Than Ready is really known as a sprinter but he has sired runners that have won up to a mile and a half.

The key to success for this guy could be if he relaxes. If he gets caught up in a hot pace, he may not have the stuff at crunch time but he is still King of the Hill until knocked off the mountain.

Revolutionary has a lot of things in his online betting corner. He is adaptable, has proven he can handle traffic, has worked sharply of late and gets the services of Derby specialist Calvin Borel.

His Louisiana Derby win was flattered when Departing returned to win the Illinois Derby going away by over 3 lengths with a 83 Beyer. Sire and dam both won Grade 1 races and earned over $2 million combined. With the prospects there could be an off track, know that this guy has the blood to handle the off going. His drill on April 27th was impressive. He drilled in company with Charming Kitten, who had a half-length lead turning into the stretch but this son of War Pass dominated late and galloped out in 1:00 58.

Orb is a peaking runner that had some eventful horse betting trips.  He is the only contender in the field with a trio of two-turn wins and he has enough speed to be in the thick of it turning for home. He has had the lead or been right there at the top of the lane in three of 6 in his career and 47 of the last 50 Derby winners have been first or second with a furlong to go.

Bred for distance on top as his sire has sired successful major winners at a mile and a quarter like Life and Ten and Funny Moon. Orb’s dam won at a mile and half on turf and her sire won the 1990 Derby and the BC Classic.

Lastly, Orb’s trainer Shug McGaughey is a patient man and he would not be here unless he believes. His confidence about this runner was expressed before his last win, Shug: “the reason I don’t get Derby Fever is that I want to take the right horse.”

The wager: Bet Orb to win. Key him first and second in the trifecta with Revolutionary, Verrazano, Goldencents, Normandy Invasion and Frac Daddy.

Good luck.
