Zipse’s Kentucky Derby Daily – Day 0
Have you seen the early odds for the Kentucky Derby?
Dialed In is the favorite, no surprise there … but how about Twice the Appeal? Longshot winner of the Sunland Derby five weeks ago at 25-1 odds, and winner of three of ten lifetime, the son of Successful Appeal is currently at 9-1 for the Derby.
Are you kidding me???
Certainly the Jeff Bonde trainee merits nothing lower than his odds were last time in New Mexico, let alone three times lower. On paper, I would list him at 30-1.
So how can this horse possibly be one of the favorites? Of course we all know the answer…
Calvin, Calvin, Calvin.
The Borel factor has taken over the Kentucky Derby betting.
Personally, I don’t see it. Calvin can’t possibly win his 4th Derby in five years … or could he?
Steve Haskin just reminded me that Twice the Appeal has the best slop breeding in the entire field.
Rain is looming here in Louisville … Calvin Borel in a muddy Kentucky Derby? Sounds way too familiar, doesn’t it?
