The crowds are starting to gather for the upcoming Kentucky Derby, both in person and online on different types of online gambling websites.
This year’s Kentucky Derby is the 137th annual event and is usually considered the biggest horse race of the year. Trainers and jockeys prepare for decades in some cases to get ready for this one event, and the world is watching as the line of the world’s fastest horses get ready to run for the roses. When you are horse betting with online gambling websites or in any other way, getting to know the horses that are racing in the event and knowing what their strengths and weaknesses are can help you place a secure bet. The hands-down favorites to win this weekend’s Kentucky Derby include the following horses.
Dialed In is generally considered the favorite for this year’s Kentucky Derby because of his exceptional versatility and ease in transitioning between quick track runs and strategic endurance runs. Many people who enjoy betting on horse racing are considering Dialed In to be a fairly safe bet, although there’s no such thing as a sure bet in the world of horse betting. Dialed In has made a good showing in his last few efforts, and many horse betting experts are considering him to make an exceptionally good showing in this weekend’s Kentucky Derby
Uncle Mo is a young horse with amazing promise and is expected by many in the horse betting committee to give Dialed In a good run for his money. Uncle Mo was the colt juvenile champion for 2010 and has made good showing in his last few runs, including Churchill. His trainer, Todd Pletcher has nursed him through a recent bout of gastrointestinal difficulties, and Uncle Mo looks to be in top form for those interested in Kentucky Derby betting.
Archarcharch is a horse to be reckoned with, and could potentially take the roses from either of these two contenders. The winner of the Arkansas Derby, Archarcharch has made exceptional appearances at his last few races, displaying an unusual pairing of high speeds and long distance endurance.
