Kentucky Derby Top 3 Finishes

With today's muddy track there are plenty of long shots that could surprise and now have an edge over previous favorites.  Gambling911.com has pointed out a number of these horses that run well in the mud.  Among them: Backtalk, Devil May Care, Paddy O'Prado and Mission Impazible.   But can any of these horses win?

"Maybe not but there is a good shot that one of these horses will end up finishing among the top 3," states Don Shapiro of Gambling911.com. 

You can now bet your favorite horse to finish among the top 3 without actually winning and you still get paid.  The payout odds are diminished however.

BetUS.com analysts like Mission Impazible's chances.

"I'm beginning to favor Pletcher's second best Derby horse ahead of his first," says BetUS.com analyst D.S. Williamson.  "Impazible hasn't hit his peak yet and that victory in the Louisiana Derby was ultra-professional. He could be a very nice long shot play come Derby Day."

Mission Impazible finishing among the top 3 horses pays out $40 for every $10 bet.

A lot of people are talking about Paddy O'Prado.  In fact, Paddy is Gambling911.com's personal favorite.   He would pay out $25 for every $10 bet as one of the top 3 finishers.
