As the Kentucky Derby 2010 contenders get ready for takeoff in this anxiously expected race, handicappers and horse betting fans study them closely before taking any wagering action on any of them. Picking the right horse for a winning bet is a process that is considered complex and sensitive. Each of the trainers for these well prepared horses carry a history of success in their career background and analyzing that history might be the key for a winning bet.
Let’s start with legendary Bob Baffert. Bob deserves a standing ovation for the impressive stats he has build up in his career as a thoroughbred trainer. In the world of horse racing betting, he holds a total of three wins on the Kentucky Derby in 1997, 1998 and in the year 2002. After eight years since his last win with a Kentucky Derby contender, Baffert is hoping to turn the tables and take the victory with either of his two horses, Conveyance or Lookin At Lucky who is coming down as the favorite in the event.
Lookin At Lucky was tagged as the favorite right after the news that Eskenderaya, the former favorite, had suffered an injury and would not be able to run with the rest of the Kentucky Derby 2010 contenders in the “most exciting two minutes in sports” as many call the Kentucky Derby. This impressive thoroughbred, just like his trainer, holds an inspiring horse racing career. Not only was Lookin At Lucky a two year old champion, but of the eight major races he has participated in his career, he has won six. Garret Gomez is the lucky jockey to ride Lookin at Lucky and show the rest of the 2010 Kentucky Derby contenders what he and his horse are made of.
As a former Belmont Stakes winner, trainer Todd Pletcher is one more trainer who could be and will be highly considered for a winning horse racing bet. Pletcher was in charge of training ex-favorite Eskedereya, nevertheless, he has two more picks on the tracks. Mission Impazible and Super Saver will have action as Kentucky Derby 2010 contenders. Calvin Borel, who took the victory for last year’s run for the roses, will be in charge of ridding Super Saver.
