Kentucky Derby wagering on heavy chalks is not a great way to make money against the Kentucky Derby odds. A good long shot is often a smarter bet. Hold Me Back has an excellent Kentucky Derby wagering resume of 3 wins and 1 place in 5 starts with $438,000 in graded earnings but opened as a 25/1 long shot against the Kentucky Derby odds.
Hold Me Back is coming off a 2nd place finish in the Blue Grass at Keeneland, which followed up a win in the Lane’s End at Turfway Park. Prior to that, Hold Me Back finished a poor fifth in the Remsen at Aqueduct, which turned off many Kentucky Derby wagering fans.
But prior to that many Kentucky Derby wagering handicappers became enthralled with Hold Me Back when he won the Allowance at Keeneland.
Hold Me Back has a powerful yet colorful pedigree as he was sired by English and Irish champion Giant’s Causeway, who won five Group 1 events in 2000 to earn the title of “Iron Horse!” Hold Me Back is trained by Bill Mott, who is highly respected in Kentucky Derby wagering circles as a Hall of Famer.
He is the youngest trainer ever to be elected to the Hall. Mott’s claim to fame was training two-time Horse of the Year winner Cigar. Mott is a Kentucky Derby wagering hometown hero as the all time winningest trainer at Churchill Downs.
Another name both familiar and respected by Kentucky Derby wagering fans will ride Hold Me Back. Jockey Kent Desormeaux is a legend in Southern California with countless titles at SoCal tracks. Desormeaux himself is a Hall of Famer and was the youngest rider to win $100 million in earnings.
One of the must successful jockeys in Kentucky Derby wagering, Desormeaux has won the blanket of roses three times! WinStar Farm owns Hold Me Back and there is no operation that is more respected in racing.
Don’t “Hold Back” from the “Run for the Roses!”
