Kentucky Derby Betting

I'm not the greatest horse handicapper, but I did have Barbaro across the board in last year's Kentucky Derby (before everyone fell in love with him).

This year, I walked down to the OTB and placed a number of bets for family and friends... For myself, I took the 6 horse, Cowtown Cat across the board. At 20-1, I don't think that it's a bad bet.

Cowtown Cat is running out of the 6th post position and has what I think is a strong competitive streak in him. He won his last two by a few lengths and has shown constant improvement over his racing life. He'll need to improve here to win this one, but I like him at 20-1.

If you are looking to bet the Derby online, BoDog is offering track odds on all horses.

Good Luck and enjoy the Derby.
