William Hill Kentucky Derby Props
The 145th Kentucky Derby has been titled one of the most wide-open fields in modern history. The statement and articles written under the guise is first and foremost a marketing move to feed any momentum the Churchill Downs event had. It takes an enormous amount of work to keep those that are not horse racing fans or followers in front of their televisions for an event that lasts less than two minutes. Secondly because under the new points system predicting the most likely winner has become more logical. The last six Derby post time favorites have won the race. William Hill Kentucky Derby Props.
The Louisville, Kentucky based three day event is in truth more than “The most exciting two minutes in sports” but it isn’t perfectly suited for television. Furthermore when the morning-line favorite, Omaha Beach, pulled out of Saturday’s race due to a breathing problem the job of rewriting the race day tips sheets became more lopsided.
My definition of lopsided in one word is unbalanced. With his scratch of Omaha Beach the top three favorites are all trained by five-time Kentucky Derby winner Bob Baffert. The three William Hill Triple Crown prop chalk are all 10-1 or less, Game Winner (+600), Improbable (8-1) and Roadster (10-1), to win the 2019 Triple Crown, as well. As a result the naked truth is that it is not just a probability that one of the Baffert posse will win it is… most likely. Where the handicapping in today’s Derby rests is picking which of the remaining 16 horse will finish fourth. Thus offering you the big-money superfecta foursome.
The most accomplished 2-year-old Thoroughbred in the field. He won his first race at Del Mar in dominating fashion. And followed his grand entrance into the SoCal racing world by winning the Grade 1 Del Mar Futurity. In this race he bested the favorite in the race, and his stable mate, Roadster
As a 2-year-old he was a runaway winner in his Maiden event. And he won his final juvenile race in Southern California, the Grade 1 Los Alamitos Cash Call Futurity, and did so by five lengths in what is best described as breezing.
Arguably the favorite of the trio of Bob Baffert trained Derby entrants. Baffert was interviewed by TMZ and asked who his next Justify was going to be. His answer was Roadster.
And again, all three of the outlined horses above are Baffert-trained. As a result it won’t be a surprise by any measure if the trio of stable mates are the three that combine to be the one-two-three finishers that pay today’s trifecta.
