Kentucky Derby odds handicappers can learn a lot about some of the more prominent Kentucky Derby wagering entries from the Rebel Stakes and Tampa Bay Derby. Win Willy may not be a favorite on the Kentucky Derby odds board but Kentucky Derby wagering fans that ignore him will do so at their own peril.
Win Willy took the Rebel Stakes at Hot Springs, Arkansas as a 56-1 long shot to get his name posted on the Kentucky Derby odds board!
Old Fashioned, who was the heavy chalk of the Rebel Stakes at 2-5, and who was expected to be one of the big names posted on the Kentucky Derby odds board, blew the race and, as a result, his chance to make a “Run for the Roses”.
Old Fashioned led early but Win Willy came up on the outside and blew past Old Fashioned with room to spare. Win Willy paid a whopping $115.60 on a $2 win bet to grab the attention of everyone looking for a sleeper against this year’s Kentucky Derby odds.
Old Fashioned was not only the big chalk for the Rebel Derby, he was considered to be one of the early chalks for the Kentucky Derby odds itself! It was Win Willy’s third win in four starts. Musket Man may be another sleeper to consider for the Kentucky Derby odds as all he does is win.
Musket Man took the Tampa Bay Derby with a late surge down the stretch run to win one of the most prestigious prep races leading into the Kentucky Derby odds. Musket Man won the Tampa Bay Derby at 6-1.
General Quarters, who will be making a “Run for the Roses” finished a disappointing fifth as the Tampa Bay Derby chalk. Another favorite, Hello Broadway, faded badly and finished 7th and out of Kentucky Derby contention.
