    by  • February 27, 2015 • Horse Racing

    The Kentucky Derby is one of the oldest sporting events in this world and with just two months until the race, American Pharoah is currently leading the pack on the Kentucky Derby future wager favorites.

    With promising wins in each of his last two races, American Pharoah has established himself as one of the betting favorites leading up to the Derby at Churchill Downs.

    Lets get back to the favourites – Dortmund are the another major contender in the Kentucky Derby, who is also leading the betting chart at 12/1 on the most bookmaker sites. Dortmund has shown his excellent skills with convincing wins in his maiden race and during his second race at Churchill Downs.

    “He’s had some tough races, and so I was going to give him more time,” Baffert said about Dortmund, “but he bounced out of that last race [the Lewis] so good and he’s been training so well that we decided on the San Felipe. … He looks better now than he did before the last race.”

    The race will be held on the first Saturday in May 2015.
