Kentucky Derby 2011 Field
May 7, 2011 by staff
Kentucky Derby 2011 Field, It’s that time of year when everyone becomes a horseracing fan, and this year’s mediocre field in the Kentucky Derby today provides opportunities experienced and casual bettors gold.
It’s been years since the Derby field has collectively had figures as low speed, and this presents followers racetrack with a field of 19 horses for the 137th operation in which almost nobody can be excluded from consideration.
It’s anyone’s race when the favorite line is assigned quotas of up to 04.01 before the betting begins, but that is the case of marked, arguably the most consistent artist in the field, but vulnerable because of his late style run against a large cluster, relatively slow times in previous races and even weather conditions, the air.
The 2011 Kentucky Derby should last less than two minutes on Saturday at Churchill Downs, but is preparing for the race that creates the emotion. In the week before the race, the field isanlyzed, the contenders are chosen and the odds are. It is not just for fun: Betting on Kentucky Derby is big business. And the right to run around the corner it is time to make some choices.
Here are some horses that take into account when choosing a winner for the 2011 Kentucky Derby. In addition to the selections below, check out SB Nation StoryStream Kentucky Derby for more information on odds and picks.
In marked (9.2): This is made obvious as the favorite of the race. But being the favorite in the Kentucky Derby, especially in a field as weak as this year does not mean as much as you might think. With 19 horses enter the starting gates, a lot can happen.
Twice the appeal (7 / 1): This horse is pulled into the mix, thanks to Calvin Borel. But twice the remedy is not all that appealing, at least on paper. When the morning line was released, was 20 / 1, but was quickly bet through Friday to the mountain, Calvin Borel has won the last two Kentucky Derbies and ran them with great skill. However, the likelihood of change as they have done is odd, and do not add up considering the horse.
Nehra (7 / 1): Nehra is a legitimate 7.1, but will have to come to Door No. 18, might have a chance. Nehra has the speed to get after him and make a run late and is rightly listed among the top contenders.
Soldat (17 / 1): Could be an interesting value bet for 17 / 1. In the morning line, Soldat was included in 1.12, but has fallen since then and the odds seem ripe for the value.
Mucho Macho Man (12 / 1): The name is impressive and the horse is good, too. Starting point No. 13 is decent, and right Mucho Macho Man puts in the middle of the pack. Is one to watch and root for, if only to hear a speaker, shouting his name in the final.
Midnight Interlude (01.10): I saw Midnight Run Interlude in Santa Anita Derby and went like their chances. Midnight Interlude helps a horse Bob Baffert and Baffert is trying to Churchill Downs after winning the Double Oaks on Friday. I was not surprised to see the midnight Interlude make waves on Saturday.
Pants of Fire (09.01): There are two reasons to keep an eye on your pants on fire: The name and rider. Rosie Napravnik is a rider to the root and could become the first woman to win the Kentucky Derby. In the Kentucky Oaks, ran an excellent race from the outside, but fell just a hair short in the cable. Oh, and Pants on Fire is a great name for a horse.
ArchArchArch (13 / 1): Once again, a great name for a horse. ArchArchArch is a legitimate candidate, but from the rail creating further difficulties in the Kentucky Derby. Everyone wants the railway and space at a premium, traffic could be a problem. However, keep an eye on ArchArchArch on Saturday.
Pick: Honestly, I have no idea here, and this field is amazing. I’m tempted to go and collect chalk made simply by default. I was not surprised to see the midnight Mucho Macho Man Interlude and make a run, and if you can beat Nehra outside starting position, I do not think that is a problem.
We’re going to set for win, Midnight Interlude and Mucho Macho Man up a little less.
