Kentucky Derby odds players can get a lot of solid information from the races leading up to Kentucky Derby wagering day. The Lane’s End Stakes and the San Felipe Stakes are two such races that can help anyone in their research to bet the Kentucky Derby odds.
Both races provide a glimpse into potentially large Kentucky Derby wagering clues. In the San Felipe Stakes, Pioneer of the Nile was the winner by a length and a half over Feisty Suances.
Pioneer of the Nile jumped out to a rather large and comfortable lead before getting some much needed encouragement from jockey Garrett Gomez in the stretch run to close the deal.
As was the case in the following Santa Anita Derby a few weeks later, Pioneer of the Nile allowed the horses to get back into contention before getting himself together for the win.
This is a point of concern for many handicapping the Kentucky Derby odds as Pioneer of the Nile won’t have that luxury with the better horses listed in the field of the Kentucky Derby odds board. Pioneer of the Nile was a prohibitive chalk in the San Felipe Stakes. This prep race for the Kentucky Derby odds paid $2.60 to the winners.
Hold Me Back came out of nowhere to catapult into contention for the Kentucky Derby odds by winning the Lane’s End Stakes. Hold Me Back did NOT live up to his name as he held nothing back at the end with an inspiring rally that caught the attention of Kentucky Derby odds players.
Hold Me Back started at post 11 before ending as a winner by almost two lengths. Hold Me Back was ridden by a jockey long familiar with those who have played the Kentucky Derby odds in the past; Kent Desormeaux.
Hold Me Back was a long shot for the Lane’s End Stakes and paid a nice $20.20. West Side Bernie, who will make the “Run for the Roses,” finished a disappointing sixth.
