Line of David Update

Grade 1 winner Line of David is looking to parlay the success he had at the Arkansas Derby earlier this year into a win at the 2010 Kentucky Derby.

Bet 2010 Kentucky Derby Odds

Recent History:

Line of David is coming off back-to-back-to-back wins in his last three outings, with his most impressive victory coming at the G1 Arkansas Derby on April 10. In that race, he beat out fellow Kentucky Derby contenders Super Saver and Dublin despite being a 17/1 long shot.

Kentucky Derby 136 Odds:

Line of David was a 35/1 long shot when the post positions were drawn earlier this week and now, according to oddsmakers from online sports book SPORTSBETTING.com, the 3-year-old colt is 22/1 to win the Kentucky Derby.

Post Position:

Line of David will start out of the No. 5 post position, which has produced 12 Kentucky Derby winners since 1900. The rail position is the only other position to have as much success, as the No. 1 post position has also produced 12 Derby winners.

Outlook:

Looking for a true sleeper? Look no further than Line of David, which has a couple of things working in his favor entering Saturday’s race. He transitioned from being an allowance winner to a Grade 1 winner in one step and is hot, producing victories in each of his last three races. He doesn’t have a ton of experience against top competition, which is a concern, but his upset in the Arkansas Derby provides plenty of encouragement. He probably can’t win wire to wire, but history is on his side starting in the No. 5 post position and represents a ton of value at 22/1.
