Preakness gambling handicappers will have one Hull of a horse to consider in this pack of Preakness betting new arrivals for the May 16 race. Hull will enter Preakness gambling undefeated and highly regarded despite missing the Kentucky Derby.
Jockey Miguel Mena will get the Preakness betting mount and Hull will be trained by Dale Romans. Hull will arrive at Pimlico for Preakness gambling preparation on May 13.
Owner Barry Irwin of Heiligbrodt Racing Stables said that Hull would be entered for Preakness gambling based on the strong recommendation of Mena who believes that Hull has not come close to reaching his full potential and would be a strong shot to take the Preakness gambling victory.
Hull enters Preakness gambling as a 3-year old dark bay/brown colt that is undefeated in three previous starts. He is the Kentucky bred son of Holy Bull. Hull added to his Preakness gambling credentials with an April 25 win in the Derby Trial S. (grade III), winning the 7 1/2 furlong race by four lengths over Densei.
Hull paid $8.80 for the win. Hull was dominant in the Derby Trial as he took over at the top of the lane and bolted to win going away in a time of 1:30:21 on the track that was labeled as fast. After leading by a length and a half at the eighth pole he turned it on with a powerful finish.
Romans was particularly impressed with how Hull took a relaxed approach early on, stalking the leaders, and then turning it on when Mena asked him to go. Romans said after the race that Hull is as good as anyone around.
Prior to that Hull ran in an Allowance Optional Claiming race at Turfway Park and easily won by 7 3/4 furlongs in a race that was a distance of 6 1/2 furlongs. Hull had a time of 1:16:21 in what was his second career start. The only Preakness gambling question for Hull is if he can handle the longer distance of Pimlico.
