Kentucky Derby Betting - Sophomores Under the Radar

Posted by Brian Mulligan on 2/12/2013 5:51:47 PM

Amazingly, we are only less than 12 weeks away from the Kentucky Derby and now is a good time for online sports betting site players to take a look at some of the sophomores that are flying a bit under the radar.

This is the time of the year to balance the books with the tax man waiting to get paid and the runner Balance the Books could be a force if he can utilize his talent on dirt.

He was a wide second in his debut, took two Graded stakes coming from left field and was troubled in the BC Juvenile Turf but was eating up ground late. He has trained steadily in Florida this winter and he has a right perform on dirt.

His kin Photo Shoot graduated on the dirt at Indiana in 2011 and banked over $150,000.

And if you go deep into Balance the Books’ pedigree, you’ll find millionaire Kooyonga.

If Balance the Books get a taste of the online betting dirt game and doesn’t embarrass himself, he will be a viable late threat if he is in the gate the first Saturday in May.

D. Wayne Lukas has Oxbow to handle but he also has a very nice runner in Titletown Five.

This guy has only won one time but he did it by 9 lengths with a 98 Beyer and the place horse that day was 10 lengths clear of the show horse. That race also came back live.

The race that jumps off the pace is the second beaten a neck to the very promising colt Violence.

He suffered a knee chip last year but he also put in a second best of 61 drill at Oaklawn the other day.

Saint Vigeur has been a slow learner but he has a nice progression going on. Troubled when wide in his debut, his connections thought enough of him to try a stakes as a maiden and he never kicked when he caught a yielding course. Entered on grass next out, the race came off the turf yet this guy still ran super to be second.

The coming out party for Saint Vigeur was when he added the blinkers last out and graduated inching away at the end.

The breeding is what is really exceptional about Saint Vigeur. Her dam was a winner but more importantly, she is kin to some monsters.

The dam’s sibling Life Is Sweet is a multiple Grade 1 winner including a win in the BC Ladies Classic and she earned over $1.8 million. Another of dam’s sibling, Sweet Catomine, earned over a million and was the Eclipse winner as a juvenile.
The price could be right here.

Goldencents is not exactly under the radar but he probably will not go favorite if he shows up in the San Felipe.

Trained by Doug O’Neill, who excelled on the national scene last year when his I’ll Have Another won the Kentucky Derby, has been putting his horse betting runner though the very fast motions since he made it 3 for 4 winning the Sham Stakes.

His only lost came to the juvenile champ Shanghia Bobby when he had to ship 3,000 miles. Sure, he only beat a small field in the Sham but since he has put in two best of the morning drills including a 1:10 1/5 spin.

If he faces Flashback in the San Felipe, he figures to be fit enough.
