Imortality for Saver?
Super Saver emerged from the mud at the Kentucky Derby and is now the slim favorite heading into Saturday’s 135th running of the Preakness Stakes.
Here’s the latest from BroburySports.com.
You can also enter our famous $1 Million Triple Crown Challenge that is still alive after the Derby. This comes with a guaranteed $10,000 Prize Pool.
Super Saver (+250) is a legitimate speed horse, but lost his first two races as a three-year-old (Tampa Bay Derby, Arkansas Derby). He was ridden to perfection by Calvin Borel in the Kentucky Derby, the jockey’s third Derby win in four years.
Lookin at Lucky is the second favorite at +300. He finished sixth at the Kentucky Derby after being the +200 favorite (Super Saver was +1200).
Lookin at Lucky is a California based horse and thus has made his mark on synthetic surfaces. He did get a dirt win at Arkansas’ Rebel Stakes in March, and would have had a better showing at the Derby if not for some bad luck. The horse drew the first post position and also had to deal with heavy traffic.
Paddy OPrado (+450) is the last of the ‘Big 3’ favorites. He finished third at the Derby after rallying past other tired horses. A lot of the professional handicappers believe he is overvalued at these odds.
Brobury has also raised the bar by offering several props. There hasn’t been a Triple Crown winner since Affirmed in 1978 and the odds are -900 that it won’t happen again. Conversely, a Triple Crown win by Super Saver will pay +500.
Those who pay close attention to ‘margin of victory’ will love the next prop. A win of 1 to 2 3/4 lengths is the ‘chalk’ at +300. A win from 6 to 7 3/4 lengths pays at serious +1000 odds.
Finally, pay attention to the winning saddle cloth number as ‘Even’ and ‘Odd’ are both -115.
