Hoppertunity Kentucky Derby Odds:  One Stat That Seriously Goes Against Him

Hoppertunity odds to win the Kentucky Derby were at 6-1, representing the second shortest price after California Chrome. Betting online was available from BetOnline, which is offering a 7% rebate on losses and up to $1000 in FREE BETS for qualified users.


Hoppertunity comes into this race trained by Bob Baffert.  He’s expected to run well at the 1 1/4-mile distance.

He won the all-important Rebel Stakes and will start from the 11 post position, which is decent but has only produced two winners since 1930.  It could be worse.

Ahhh and there is this little factoid:  Hoppertunity did not race at the age of two.  Apollo in 1882 is the only Derby winner who did not race as a 2-year-old.

It’s interesting to note that Hoppertunity had the third shortest odds after Wicked Strong after the post position draw.  This is primarily because Wicked Strong will start from the dreaded 20 spot, which has only produced one winner since 1930.
