When considering the various wagering angles to take on the 146th Kentucky Derby, one you may have missed is betting on the trainers you believe can saddle the winner.
To place a winner by picking through horse can be tough but in the shape of Bill Mott, Todd Pletcher, and Mark Casse among others as these are the best trainers who can be trusted to prepare their thoroughbreds perfectly.
Hundreds of different bets are available from straight wagers to exotics and even jockey betting, so why not take a chance on your favorite too?
Some of the great trainers of all times have landed multiple Kentucky Derby victories. Ben Jones (6), D.Wayne Lukas (4), and Herbert J. Thompson (4) have already cemented their place in history, while Jim Fitzsimmons won three Kentucky Derbies.
Our modern day great is five-time Kentucky Derby winner Bob Baffert, but he is just one of many hoping to take down the biggest race in the world on Saturday September 5.
The odds compiled in the winning trainer market are of course not based on the respective handlers’ all-time record, but rather whether or not they gave a strong Kentucky Derby contender this year.
So, if your favorite trainer is listed at huge odds don’t get overly tempted unless you believe their representative(s) have a major chance in the race.
Another thing to consider of course is that some might be able to saddle up more than one strong contender which gives them a huge chance of victory in the Run for the Roses.
There is a way to go on the Road to the Kentucky Derby yet, but right now this is how the winning odds looks:
|Trainer||American Odds||Fractional Odds|
|W. Bret Calhoun||+1800||18/1|
