 2011 Kentucky Derby Betting Odds - Elite Alex One Of Several Dark Horses
posted 5 years ago

2011 Kentucky Derby Odds - Elite Alex One Of Several Dark Horses - April showers are known for bringing May flowers, and none is more beautiful than the roses run for on the first Saturday of the month. It will be no different in 2011 when thousands of fans converge on the historic Churchill Downs to take in this year’s Kentucky derby betting race. After some of the early 2011 Kentucky Derby Contenders fell off over the past couple of months the field is wide open for the first leg of this year’s Triple Crown, and there is smart money to be wagered on a couple of long shots to at least show. One of those underdogs that could be worth the risk is 2500-to-one dark horse Elite Alex, which is primed to have a strong showing at this year’s race.

 

After an impressive showing at the $250,000 Southwest Stakes at Oaklawn Park in late February, Elite Alex turned more than a few heads with its ability to finish strong at the close of the race. Lost in the pack through the first couple of turns, Elite Alex rallied to finish third in the one-mile race. The fact that it came on so strong as the sports betting distance progressed is a sign that it has the endurance to last some of the longer races, and it will have a chance to do so at the Kentucky derby. As long as he draws a favorable 

2011 Kentucky Derby Post Positions Elite Alex will not be the last horse out of the gate as he was at the Southwest Stakes, and won’t have to go five wide to make his move out of the first turn. It didn’t get any easier as the race progressed as Elite Alex was kept to the outside even out of the final turn, and despite the setbacks the horse still almost rallied to show. Jockey Calvin Borel undoubtedly got the best out of him and is known for his past at Churchill Downs, so there is nothing different to be expected. Elite Alex finished just 2 ¼ lengths back of first at Oaklawn despite all of the obstacles that led to him traveling a greater distance than any other horse, and with a little more room and a better position should have an even stronger showing this Saturday.

 

Borel has reiterated his confidence in the Afleet Alex colt, and determined to prove what he has said when the Triple Crown Odds gets underway. Tim Ritchey has watched the horse carefully in the final workouts before this weekend’s race, and although external factors such as post position and weather could factor in Elite Alex is very resilient. A couple of tough losses have pushed him under the radar, but with so many question marks for favorites such as Uncle Mo and Dialed In this horse is well worth the chance. The attention will move from the MLB betting to Churchill Downs for the afternoon, and Elite Alex could provide the biggest surprise of the day. Check out the latest 2011 Kentucky Derby Odds
