Todd Pletcher will have several Kentucky Derby 2013 contenders in the 139th running of the Derby at Churchill Downs, but it's VERRAZANO who is the current betting odds favorite to win. The three year old colt is owned by Mrs John 'Susan' Magnier, Derrick Smith, Michael B. Tabor and Let's Go Stable who's primary owners include Bryan Sullivan and Kevin Scatuorchio.
In his last outing VERRAZANO finished fast in the G1 Wood Memorial battling with NORMANDY INVASION and VYJACK. Listed as the odds favorite of the Kentucky Derby 2013 contenders with 7/2 betting odds, VERRAZANO remains undefeated heading into the Derby. Jockey John R Velazquez has been on board VERRAZANO since his first outing on 1/1/2013 where VERRAZANO went 6 1/2 f in 1:16:48 edging out Acclaim and Coin Broker for the win.
In the Wood Memorial VERRAZANO showed speed and distance going 1:50.27 in a 1 1/8th mile.
Since VERRAZANO is the betting odds favorite and likely will be at post time, the value in wagering on him other than in a trifecta is pretty tough to justify. A free Kentucky Derby pick would be to leave VERRAZANO out of your win, place, show selections at 7/2. In the past three Kentucky Derby races the winners paid $18.00 or more.
