Regal Ransom Odds
Despite a streaky 2009, Regal Ransom has the potential to make a splash in Saturday’s Breeders’ Cup Classic.
Oddsmakers from online sports book SBGGLOBAL have given Regal Ransom 14/1 odds to win. Zenyatta is the pre-race favorite at 3/1 while other short odds are Rip Van Winkle (10/3) and Summer Bird (6/1).
Foaled in 2006, Regal Ransom was sired by Distorted Humor. He has two wins in 2009, both of important nature. He won the 2009 UAE Derby from start-to-finish, upsetting stable mate Desert Party, who was expected to be the more successful horse of the two.
Ransom followed up the win with an eighth place finish in the Kentucky Derby, but bounced back by winning the Super Derby on Sept. 19. where it pulled away from the rest of the pack early to win with ease.
Regal Ransom will come out of gate No. 11 for Saturday’s race and holds some value at 14/1 odds. As previously noted, he’s a bit streaky because he’s liable to finish 1st, 2nd or 8th given on the day. But his jockey, Richard Migliore, won the inaugural running of the Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint aboard Desert Code in 2008, so he does have some Breeders’ Cup experience. He also is ranked among the top 100 jockeys in North America with $2,739,494 in earnings and has 40 wins from 280 mounts.
If you’re a conservative bettor, Regal Ransom might not be the best fit for you. But if you like taking risks in hopes for high rewards, than Regal Ransom is perfect at 14/1 because he has proven that he can beat top competition in the past.
The Breeders’ Cup Classic will take place on Saturday, Nov. 7 at Santa Anita Park in Arcadia, Calif. For more information on this year’s race, check out our 2009 Breeders Cup Viewing Guide.
