2011 Kentucky Derby Weather Forecast: Mud Possible

The 2011 Kentucky Derby weather forecast could call for mud.  So which horses ride best in the slop and mud?

One of the most important things to consider before betting on Saturday’s big race is the 2011 Kentucky Derby weather….and it won’t be easy to predict.  Thunderstorms are expected at any time during the afternoon and evening.  A heavy downpour means a sloppy track.  That means look for horses that race best in mud.

Shackleford Kentucky Derby Odds

Shackleford Kentucky Derby odds were coming in at +1350, closing in on single digits.

Trainer Dale Romans said of his number 14 spot: “It’s a great spot for us at 14. Most of the speed is inside us, especially Comma to the Top, who is probably quicker than we are. That’s the horse you want to be outside of most of all. If we can get a clean break with the extra space (from the auxiliary gate), the hope is to sit second. Being outside of Comma to the Top gives us options.”

Master of Hounds Kentucky Derby Odds

Master of Hounds Kentucky Derby odds were set at 16/1 at Bookmaker.com.

Jockey Garrett Gomez said of the number 11 post position: “It’s good. We’re not too far inside, not too far outside. We’re right in the middle of the field. We’ll have to make our own trip, just like anywhere, but I like the draw.”

Master of Hounds is the only Derby entrant with a race at 1 3/16 miles.
