Bet the 2009 Kentucky Derby

Hold Me Back has run just twice this year, with a first place finish at the Lane’s End race at Turfway Park on March 21, and a second place finish at the Blue Grass at Keeneland on February 11.

Before those two races, Hold Me Back has been a little inconsistent. He finished first at the Maiden Special Weight at Arlington Park on September 14 of last year, and first at the Allowance at Keeneland on October 9 of 2008. But despite those first place showings, he finished fifth on November 29 of 2008 at the Remsen race at Aqueduct.

Oddsmakers from online sports book SPORTSBETTING.COM have made I Want Revenge a 3/1 favorite to win the 135th running of the Kentucky Derby. In comparison, Hold Me Back is a 15/1 long shot, which puts his odds even with Desert Party, who is also 15/1. Dunkirk and Pioneerof the Nile each have 4/1 odds to win, while Frisean Fire is 5/1.
