2014 Kentucky Derby Opens U.S. Horse Racing Triple Crown Chase

California invader tops Kentucky Derby betting board

Following four straight wins, including a 5-1/4 length romp in the G1 Santa Anita Derby, California Chrome invades Kentucky as a huge odds on favorite to capture the Run for the Roses. Foaled on February 18, 2011, this chestnut Colt, aptly named for his flashy white markings, would become just the fourth California-bred horse to win the Kentucky Derby. The first three were Morvich in 1922, Swaps in 1955 and Decidedly who turned the trick 52 years ago in 1962. The rest of the 19 horse field better ready for this “speed” horse.

If history tells us anything – it’s that there aren’t many “sure things” when it comes to winning the first jewel of the U.S. horse racing Triple Crown. Longshots like I’ll Have Another ($32.60 in 2012) Animal Kingdom ($43.80 in 2011) and Mine That Bird ($103.20 in 2009) have won three of the past five Derby’s. Last year, Golden Soul (34-1) jacked up exotic wager payouts as he charged up to grab the Place money behind Orb. With just one clear cut favorite – cashing a big exacta or trifecta ticket is a definite possibility on Saturday in Kentucky.
