Weather Forecast for Kentucky Derby 2014:  Horses That Don’t Run Well on Dirt

This year’s Kentucky Derby weather forecast calls for overcast skies, but don’t expect any rain to fall from those clouds. Betting online was available from BetOnline, which is offering a 7% rebate on losses and up to $1000 in FREE BETS for qualified users.


Last year’s Kentucky Derby was a slopfest and, as such, the so-called “mudders” were in high demand from bettors.

In 2014, we’ll be looking at those horses that run best on dirt….and those that prefer the synthetic stuff.

Dance With Fate is widely viewed as a horse that prefers the turf or synthetic track.  He is winless in two previous dirt attempts.  Trainer Peter Eurton talked about not going to the Derby for this reason.

We Miss Artie at 50/1 odds is a long shot for a reason: He's lost his three races on dirt by a combined 27¼ lengths. He's a grass/Polytrack horse.

Medal Count at 20-1 has also preferred synthetic and turf tracks.

Harry’s Holiday – His ability to run well on dirt is also questionable.

Pablo Del Monte – He’s on standby but his first two dirt performances of the year were subpar with both victories occurring on polytrack.
