Hansen Odds to Win the 2012 Kentucky Derby (Video)
Hansen odds to win the 2012 Kentucky Derby were listed at +750 at Bookmaker.eu, which was offering up to $2500 in FREE CASH and 8 percent cash back daily when you open an online betting account today (for qualifying customers). The payout would be $75 for every $10 bet.
Hansen’s accomplishments: He finished 1st at the Grade III Gotham and 2nd at the Grade I Blue Grass, where Hansen had been favored to win.
"All 20 horses are stronger than I can remember in years," said Dr. Kendall Hansen, who owns Hansen, a horse that carries the family name. "There's no horse that's setting the world on fire yet. It's nice that you're not running against a Northern Dancer or a Secretariat. There's a lot of horses that have a chance going into the Derby."
No doubts surrounding his tenacity and class -- he is fit and will lay it all on the line for trainer Mike Maker; the big concern is distance. Hansen appears better suited to win the Grade 1 King's Bishop Stakes at seven furlongs this summer than a major prize at 1 1/4 miles. The near-white colt likes Churchill Downs, gamely prevailing in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile over Union Rags last November, and it will be no surprise to see him in the thick of things turning for home in the Derby. But there's no shaking the belief that he is geared to excel at middle distances and will come up short in the final eighth of a mile. The talented front runner can beat me.
