Materiality Kentucky Derby Preview
CHURCHILL DOWNS, KY (The Spread) - After winning the Florida Derby earlier this month, Materiality will contend in this weekend's 2015 Kentucky Derby.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, Materiality is 12/1 to win the 2015 Kentucky Derby, giving him the same odds as Mubtaahij. American Pharoah is the current favorite to win this weekend at 9/4, while Dortmund is 9/2 and Carpe Diem is 7/1.
Materiality is a perfect 3-0 in his career, with his biggest victory coming in the Grade 1 Florida Derby on March 28. He also placed first at the Islamorada on March 6, beating Stanford and Quimet.
Perhaps the Florida Derby will breed the same success for Materiality as it did Orb in 2013. After winning the Florida Derby on March 30, 2013, Orb won the Kentucky Derby on May 4 of that year.
