Tale of Ekati Odds

Wood Memorial Stakes (G1) winner Tale of Ekati will try to improve on his fourth place finish at the Kentucky Derby when he races at the 2008 Belmont Stakes on Saturday, June 7. Oddsmakers from Online Sports Book Bodog have given Tale of Ekati 20/1 odds to win the Belmont Stakes.

Bet on Tale of Ekati in the 2008 Belmont Stakes

After a fourth place finish at the Kentucky Derby, Tale of Ekati skipped the Preakness to focus on the Belmont Stakes. He’s had success at Belmont too, winning a Grade III race there last year. While he’s not an immediate threat, he is one horse that could give Big Brown competition.

Of his recent work, Tale of Ekati won the Wood Memorial Stakes and finished fourth at the Kentucky Derby. This is what Trainer Barclay Tagg had to say following his horse’s victory at the Wood Memorial Stakes: "Last time, we took him to the Louisiana Derby. He got a little tangled up in the gate there and ran a disappointing race. We still felt good about him, and we worked out some of those issues in the gate. He showed up today big time. I thought War Pass was the horse to beat. It was nice to see Inner Light go after War Pass. We were laying a little closer than I wanted him to be, but [jockey Edgar Prado] has an intuitiveness that has served him pretty well for the last 30 years."

At 20/1 odds, obviously oddsmakers are fond of Tale of Ekati’s work at the Memorial Stakes. But does he have what it takes to take down Big Brown? Tale of Ekati is definitely in the running, but he’ll face stiff competition from Casino Drive (9/2 odds), Denis of Cork (12/1 odds) and of course, Big Brown (2/7 odds).
