Kentucky Derby gambling fans think that Dunkirk could prove to be a special horse and a good value to make a Kentucky Derby bet online with. Dunkirk has a record of 3 starts, 2 wins, and 1 place entering Kentucky Derby gambling action. Dunkirk placed in his last race, which was the Florida Derby at Gulfstream Park.
His failure to take the Florida Derby may have actually had the affect of improving his Kentucky Derby bet online value as now he is not the undefeated overwhelming favorite. In the Florida Derby Dunkirk finished 4 1/2 lengths behind Quality Road.
Prior to the Florida Derby Dunkirk established his Kentucky Derby gambling credentials with wins at Gulfstream Park in the Allowance and in the Maiden Special Weight. Dunkirk has a total of $150,000 in graded earnings.
Dunkirk has phenomenal Kentucky Derby gambling pedigree by Unbridled’s Song, who distinguished himself in the Breeder’s Cup and ran in the 1996 Kentucky Derby, finishing fifth despite a foot problem. Dunkirk is also linked to 1990 Derby winner Unbridled.
Trainer Todd Pletcher learned under one of the best and most respected Kentucky Derby gambling trainers of all time in D. Wayne Lukas. In 2006 he beat his mentor’s record for stakes victories with 100. Pletcher won four consecutive Eclipse Awards as the nation’s outstanding trainer in 2004-07.
Pletcher, despite this litany of success, is yet to post a Kentucky Derby gambling win. He trained five Kentucky Derby gambling starters in 2007. Dunkirk will be mounted by Edgar Prado, who registered his 6,000th career win last February. Prado won the 2006 Eclipse Award as the nation’s top jockey.
Prado is a three time jockey champion of Saratoga and won the 2000 New York Racing Association title. Prado’s greatest moment was his 2006 Kentucky Derby gambling win on Barbaro. Dunkirk is owned by Mrs. John Magnier, Michael Tabor and Derrick Smith.
