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.”
