How I'd Bet $100 On The Kentucky DerbyThe key to a financially successful day will be hitting one of the multi-horse wagers: the exacta, trifecta, and superfecta. Even if the favorite California Chrome wins, a few longshots filling in the second through fourth positions could make the return on investment significant.
Kentucky Derby: California Chrome Is Primed To ShineIt has been a few years since the Kentucky Derby had a consensus favorite. <strong>Big Brown</strong> was the last back in 2008 when he won the Derby at odds of 2 to 1. When the gates open for the 140th Kentucky Derby on Saturday, California Chrome's odds could be the lowest of any favorite this century. California Chrome, impressive winner of his last four races, is the stand-out among this year’s crop of 3-year-olds.
