 2011 Kentucky Derby Picks - Kentucky Derby Picks - Kentucky Derby Betting
posted 5 years ago

Kentucky Derby betting is about to shift into high gear as the 137th edition of the “Run For The Roses” takes place on Saturday at Churchill Downs. The final list of Kentucky Derby Odds have been released as they’ve released the post positions for the race, and here is who you should consider with your wagers.

 

Kentucky Derby Picks -  Dialed In (4-1): The favorite draws post No.8, where 10 horses have won the Derby from, including longshot Mine That Bird just two years ago. Dialed In has won three of four races in his career, including a stellar win at the Grade-1 Florida Derby, and if he can get out to a good start, it should be smooth sailing for trainer Nick Zito, who has won two Derbies in the past.

 

Uncle Mo (5-1): He was the Horse Racing Odds favorite before the post positions were drawn, but Uncle Mo still has a good shot as he goes off from No.18. History may be against him as only one horse has ever won the Kentucky Derby from the eighteenth spot, and that was Gato Del Sol back in 1982. But Uncle Mo has looked excellent in workouts, and he appears to be healthy again after an infection caused a third-place finish at the Gade-1 Wood Memorial.

 

Archarcharch (10-1): This horse drew the dreaded No.1 position, but his stable shouldn’t worry too much as 12 horses have won the Derby from that spot, although none since Winning Colors in 1988. Archarcharch is coming off a win in the Grade-1 Arkansas Derby, and he’s used to Jon Court, the only jockey he’s ever known, so that should help his comfort level.

 

Shackleford (20-1): He may not be a big name, but even those who make NFL picks know you have to take an underdog every once in a while, and Shackleford has looked great in workouts leading up to the Derby. He goes off at No.14, where two horses have won from in the past and none since 1961, but he finished second to Dialed In at the Grade 1-Florida Derby, so expect Shackleford to contend on Saturday.

 

Twice The Appeal (30-1): This is the intriguing horse of the Derby as this is a huge step up in competition for Twice The Appeal, but the jockey is what you have to look at here. Calvin Borel has won three of the last four Derbies, and with the No.3 position (where eight horses have won from), he doesn’t have far to go in order to use his rail-riding technique. There are few that know Churchill Downs better than Borel, and remember, he was on the back of Mine That Bird, the biggest longshot in Kentucky Derby history, so he could be worth a shot at your favorite betting website.
