Super Stock Kentucky Derby Betting

With the Arkansas Derby behind us, Super Stock Kentucky Derby betting odds are our new focus. Steven M. Asmussen-trained colt Super Stock hasn’t won a race as a three-year-old and was an afterthought going into the Kentucky Derby before a surprise win at the Arkansas Derby over the weekend.

Super Stock, which had nine points before the race, picked up 100 points for the win, which is enough to book a spot in next month’s Derby.

“We got a beautiful trip,” jockey Ricardo Santana Jr. said. “I was talking to Mr. Steve (Asmussen) for about two weeks about this race. The post was perfect. We both liked breaking from No. 1. We knew there was some speed and everything came out perfect. It was a really important win for Steve and his family. I’m really blessed to be the one they chose to ride this race.”

Super Stock was making his second start of the year after a four and a half month layoff. He finished with a final time of 1:50.92 for 1 1/8-miles on a fast track, paying $26.40 as the fourth choice in the wagering.

The win gives Asmussen his third Arkansas Derby win, but the legendary trainer is still seeking the first Kentucky Derby victory in his distinguished career. He also has Midnight Bourbon set for this year’s Kentucky Derby.

“(Tactically it set up) perfectly,” Asmussen said. “We wanted to use his post position. I thought he used his post position into the first turn extremely well. Those horses went: 46 2/5 for a half-mile. Plenty solid factions, carried him nicely.

“My confidence level was he was going to run really good,” Asmussen added. “I’ve been in races like that, that you have no control over how good or bad somebody else runs. But I felt like that he was going to represent extremely well.”

Bettors Cash In On Bourbonic At Wood Memorial

Todd Pletcher-trained colt Bourbonic went into the Wood Memorial as the longest shot on the board, going into the race with 72-1 odds. However, he managed to rally from last to nail the Pletcher-trained Dynamic One (15-1) to win the Grade 2, $750,000 Wood Memorial by a head, earning him a spot at the Kentucky Derby.

Dynamic One, coming off a maiden win last month, finished second over Crowded Trade. Weyburn, the Grade 3 Gotham winner, was fourth, followed by Brooklyn Strong, Prevalence, Risk Taking, Market Maven, and Candy Man Rocket.

Bourbonic’s win gave Pletcher his sixth win in the Wood Memorial for Pletcher, putting him two behind the legendary “Sunny Jim” Fitzsimmons for most victories by a trainer in this race.

The $146.50 win was the highest in the 96-year history of the Wood Memorial, eclipsing the $129.50 Mansassa Mauler paid in 1959.4

“They’re always game to take a chance and one thing about the horse is that he would handle added distance,” a somewhat shell-shocked Pletcher said. “He was able to get a perfect trip, sit back and make one late run and was able to get there just in time. It was a big effort.”

Going into the race, Dynamic One, a son of Union Rags, who had shown improvement during the course of winter, was considered Petcher’s best chance to win the race.

“The one thing we were concerned about is if he made the lead he might idle a little bit and Jose [Ortiz] tried to time it as well as he could,” Pletcher said.

Todd Pletcher Four Kentucky Derby Contenders

A few weeks ago, there was a slight chance that trainer Todd Pletcher wouldn’t have a horse in the 2021 Kentucky Derby. Now, Todd Pletcher four Kentucky Derby contenders to his name. Over the last week, Pletcher’s horses have come up big and he now has four potential starters for the Kentucky Derby on May 1.

On Saturday, Bourbonic and Dynamic One improbably finished 1-2 in the Grade 2, $750,000 Wood Memorial to earn their trips to Louisville. Bourbonic came from nowhere.

Bourbonic, at 72-1, was the highest-priced winner in the 95-year history of the Wood Memorial. Dynamic One was sent off at 15-1. Review the latest results here.

Their performance comes a week after Known Agenda won the Grade 1 Florida Derby at Gulfstream Park and Sainthood finished second in the Grade 3 Jeff Ruby Steaks at Turfway Park. View updated odds above.

“I’ve always said sometimes the worst thing you can have is a really hot hand in January. Also, February,” said Pletcher, a two-time Kentucky Derby winner. “We were hoping something would come together and a couple of these we always felt had the potential to step up and it’s good to see them do it.”

Update on Todd Pletcher Four Kentucky Derby Contenders Odds

Todd Pletcher

Bourbonic took the biggest step forward, rallying from last behind a pedestrian pace to outpace Dynamic One and win the Wood by a head. It was Pletcher’s sixth victory in the Wood.

Bourbonic had only won a maiden $50,000 claiming race. This was in December. Also, a starter allowance in January from five starts. Prior to the Wood. He was beaten four lengths in a first-level allowance at Parx Racing. Bourbonic was primarily entered in the Wood because owner Brad Kelley wanted him to run in a Derby points-scoring race.

“It’s hard to explain. Sometimes why 3-year-olds kind of start to improve in the spring,” Pletcher said Sunday.
“I know the track was definitely a demanding surface.” said Pletcher, who noted that both Bourbonic and Dynamic One appeared to come of their performances in good shape.

Known Agenda Wins Florida Derby

On Saturday, trainer Todd Pletcher was able to register his record sixth Florida Derby victory at Gulfstream Park after Known Agenda rallied to a convincing 2 3/4-length decision over the previously undefeated Soup and Sandwich. Greatest Honour, who was seeking to become the first horse to sweep all three principal Kentucky Derby preps decided here, finished a disappointing third as the prohibitive 4-5 favorite.

Jockey Irad Ortiz Jr. also got his record 138th winner during the 2020-2021 Championship meet. Eclipsing the single season mark of 137 set by Luis Saez in 2017-18. Sound familiar?

“We were looking for a couple of things in his last race,” said Pletcher. “One was to see if blinkers made an improvement. Secondly, we wanted to see how he handled the Gulfstream surface. I thought we got very good answers. To both of those questions and it was an impressive step in the right direction.”

Pletcher, who gave jockey John Velazquez credit for suggesting he put blinkers on Known Agenda. This following his disappointing fifth-place finish. As the favorite in the Sam F. Davis at Tampa Bay Downs. Said he was pleased while watching the race the way his horse was making progress along the inside in the run down the backstretch.

“We were a little worried if he got stuck inside because he didn’t handle that in the Remsen very well,” said Pletcher. “But when he was making progress on the backside picking up horses, I had a pretty good feeling at that point that he was running his race today and it was just a matter of finding out how good he is.”

Trainer Shug McGaughey, while obviously disappointed, took Greatest Honour’s third-place finish in stride.

“I thought we were okay there on the turn, he just didn’t kick on the way I thought he would,” said the Hall of Fame horseman. “The winner ran a huge race. I’d have rather had a position a little closer and on the outside. But he [Ortiz] said he handled the kickback fine so we’ll pack up and make sure he’s okay and move forward.”

Life is Good off Derby Trail after Injury

Kentucky Derby Favorite Life is Good emerged from a fast work at Santa Anita on Saturday morning with an apparent hind-end injury and is off the Triple Crown trail, his trainer, Bob Baffert, said Saturday afternoon.

The unbeaten three-year-old. Also, is the current favorite for the Kentucky Derby on May 1. Was scheduled to make his next start in the Santa Anita Derby on April 3.

“He came back to the barn after the work. And was off when he turned,” Baffert said earlier Saturday. “We have to do more tests on him. It’s nothing obvious.”

Baffert, who said he did not believe that the injury is career-threatening. Said Life Is Good would be sent to noted veterinarian Dr. Larry Bramlage in Kentucky for further evaluation.

“The plans right now are to fly Life Is Good to Versailles, Ky., to WinStar Farm to have the best veterinarians in Kentucky and check him out. To try to get to the source of the problem,” Moss said. “Bob doesn’t think it’s anything too terribly serious, but with all the timing and the flights and everything, this does officially take him off the Derby trail.”

Life is Good Kentucky Derby Injury Update

Life Is Good, by Into Mischief, has won all three of his starts. Also, would have been an overwhelming favorite against what was expected to be a small field for the Santa Anita Derby. Bettors be aware. The Santa Anita Derby now figures to significantly increase in field size among local entrants. Ready to bet? Baffert is pointing San Felipe runner-up Medina Spirit to that race. Among those also under consideration for the Santa Anita Derby are Dream Shake, Rock Your World, Rombauer, and The Great One, but more are expected.

The workout Saturday looked routine to Baffert. “He handled everything well,” he told the Santa Anita media team. “He worked perfectly, and I’m very happy with him.”

Kentucky Derby Injury Update

In today’s Kentucky Derby injury update we report on Senor Buscador. Texas-based breeder and owner Joey Peacock Jr. saw his most recent hope dashed when Señor Buscador sustained a suspensory injury to his right front leg while he was preparing for a pivotal start in the $1 million Rebel Stakes.

The setback was especially disappointing. For the reason that the Mineshaft colt is the last horse Peacock bred with his father, Joe. Joe, who had been in the game since the 1960s. Joe died last September in his native San Antonio. He was 88.

The two men endured a huge disappointment in 2018 with another quality colt. Remember Runaway Ghost? A son of Rose’s Desert and 2004 Horse of the Year Ghostzapper. He had racked up enough points to qualify for the Kentucky Derby. This by winning the Sunland Derby only to fracture the cannon bone in his right front leg.

2021 Kentucky Derby Injury Update

Somehow, Peacock is taking everything in stride. “If you don’t have patience,” he said, “racing will teach you patience.”
Señor Buscador will be given three months of rest and then swim for 30 days before his expected return to trainer Todd Fincher’s barn.

“The veterinarian expects a 100 percent recovery,” Fincher said. “That’s the main thing.”

The delivery of the bad news to Peacock was no easier than the information Fincher provided when Runaway Ghost was idled.
“You don’t like to make the call, but he’s really good to deal with, no doubt about it,” Fincher said of Peacock, adding, “Joey is a very even-keeled person, and he doesn’t want his horse tore up. If something is going on, he needs to know.”

Kentucky Derby 147 Points Bubble

Today we have a quick look at the Kentucky Derby 147 points bubble. The 2021 Kentucky Derby is less than two months away, which means we are in the thick of the Derby prep races. With the Gotham Stakes (G3), Tampa Bay Derby (G2) and San Felipe (G2) out of the way, it’s time to take a look at who’s in and out of the Kentucky Derby points bubble.


Life is Good, 60 points
The three-year-old Bob Baffert Trained colt is one of the top contenders to win the Kentucky Derby. Sound familiar? He won the Sham Stakes (G2) in January. Also, followed it up with an impressive win at Santa Anita on Saturday, which moved him into a tie atop the leaderboard with 60 points.

Weyburn, 50 points
Despite a three-month layoff, Pioneerof the Nile’s son returned to the track with a win at the Gotham Stakes on Saturday, giving him two wins in his last two starts, and making home a potential starter in the Kentucky Derby. The only thing currently keeping him out of the race is the late nomination fee.

Updated 2021 Kentucky Derby 147 Points Bubble

Kentucky Derby 147 Points Bubble

Helium, 50 points
Even though his first two races were on short tracks, Helium showed he has the stamina to handle the longer tracks by winning the Tampa Bay Derby on Saturday, giving him enough points to start at the Kentucky Derby. However, he will have to be nominated later this month, which trainer Mark Casse said was the plan on Sunday.

On the Bubble

Medina Spirit, 34 points
Medina Spirit would already be in if it didn’t have to compete with stablemate Life is Good. Now, Medina Spirit finished right behind Life is Good for the second time on Saturday. Even though the 34 points he has would be enough to get in the Derby in most years, it took as many as 40 points to qualify in 2019, which is why he remain on the bubble.

Greatest Honour Expected Favorite

Currently Greatest Honour expected favorite at the 2021 Kentucky Derby is looking ready. The Kentucky Derby is only a couple of months away and we are in the thick of the Derby prep races. However, Greatest Honour, one of the early contenders to win the Derby, is coming off a win in the 1 1/16-mile Fountain of Youth, and is expected to participate in the Grade 1 Florida Derby on March 27.

“We shipped him back to Payson last night (Saturday). He seemed to be good this morning,” trainer Shug McGaughey said between races Sunday. “I thought he ran a great race yesterday considering what he had to overcome. Some obstacles he never had before. To be able to do that going a mile and one sixteenth over that track. Against a good horse who was second I thought was very good.”

Secondly, Greatest Honour is strong. Extremely tough.

Betting Odds Greatest Honour Expected Favorite

Greatest Honour Expected Favorite

McGaughey confirmed the 1 1/8-mile Florida Derby. A race he won with Orb as a final prep before his victory in the 2013 Kentucky Derby. Would be next on the agenda for Greatest Honour if all goes well over the next four weeks. Remember Orb?

“It could be a concern coming back in four weeks off a hard race like he had yesterday, and if there is, I won’t run,” McGaughey said. “There are other options the following week like the Wood or the Blue Grass, or I could go right ahead and train him up to the Derby. He’s the type of horse who can get fit without much problem.”
