Preakness Wagering - Super Saver Goes For Jewel #2

Preakness wagering will focus on Kentucky Derby winner Super Saver in Saturday’s second jewel of the Triple Crown as the colt will be the Preakness odds chalk.

Preakness wagering fans will give Super Saver a good hard look with the Preakness odds as he tries to become the first Triple Crown Winner since Affirmed in 1978.

Preakness horse racing action will feature a strong field for Super Saver to run against.  Super Saver has momentum, however, and is considered by many to be peaking at the perfect time.

Jockey Calvin Borel is one of the reasons why Super Saver is a Preakness wagering favorite.  Borel has rode to victory at the Kentucky Derby in three out of the past four years and was the winning jockey with the Preakness Stakes odds last year aboard Rachel Alexandra.

Borel is known for riding the rail to perfection and that is exactly what he did in this year’s Kentucky Derby in what was a near carbon copy of last year’s run for the roses when he was aboard Mine that Bird.  Borel is becoming the most respected jockey in Triple Crown racing and will be confident at Pimlico as last year’s winner.

Super Saver will enter Preakness Stakes betting action with a record of 3 wins, 2 places, and 1 show in 7 career starts.  The Kentucky Derby was Super Saver’s first win of 2010.  Super Saver has career earnings of $1,789,032.

Prior to winning the Kentucky Derby Super Saver finished second in the Arkansas Derby on April 10 to Line of David.  On March 13 in the Tampa Derby Super Saver finished third as Odysseus was the winner.

Another reason for Super Saver being a Preakness Stakes wagering favorite is trainer Todd Pletcher, who is poised to become the dominant trainer in the game after finally winning his first Kentucky Derby ever.  Pletcher is an Eclipse Award winner as the top jockey in America and is also peaking at the right time.

With Pletcher training and Borel riding it is easy to see why the possibility of a Triple Crown is real with Super Saver.

Super Saver has excellent pedigree to bet on Preakness Stakes action with as his sire is Maria’s Mon and the Dam is Supercharger.  Super Saver has bloodlines with AP Indy and Wavering Monarch.
