Kentucky Derby gambling fans may get considerably better bang for their buck against the Kentucky Derby betting lines with this horse than a heavy chalk. West Side Bernie has plenty of Kentucky Derby gambling appeal starting with his career record of 2 wins, 2 places, and 1 show in 7 starts.
West Side Bernie opened at 33/1 against the Kentucky Derby betting lines. West Side Bernie has career graded earnings of $385,000. West Side Bernie is coming off a 2nd place showing in the prestigious Wood Memorial at Aqueduct. Before that he had a terrible showing in the Lane’s End at Turfway where he finished sixth.
That poor run turned off a lot of Kentucky Derby gambling fans and contributed to his long shot status. West Side Bernie has fine breeding for Kentucky Derby gambling success as he has influences of both speed and stamina. He was sired by Bernstein. Kelly Breen will train West Side Bernie.
Breen operates out of Monmouth Park, where he was the leading trainer in 2005 and 2006. West Side Bernie will be ridden by Stewart Elliot, who mounted Smarty Jones to a Kentucky Derby gambling win along with a win in the Preakness in 2004. Elliot is the leading jockey at Philadelphia Park, where he has rode since 1981.
This will be his third Kentucky Derby gambling appearance. West Side Bernie’s finish in the Wood Memorial is what should encourage all Kentucky Derby gambling fans as he was just a length and a half behind winner I Want Revenge, who is one of the main Kentucky Derby gambling chalks this year.
The fact that West Side Bernie opened at 33/1 would show that he is offering a far greater price to gamblers than what would actually seem to be warranted. He has nice wins from the Kentucky Cup Juvenile and a strong second place in the Delta Jackpot.
