  • Betcris.com It has been a wacky season of Triple Crown horse racing. The winner of the Kentucky Derby, Maximum Security, was disqualified for running into other horses, and then a jockey-less horse finished the Preakness. The final leg of the prestigious three races will be held on Saturday as some of the top horses reconvence for the Belmont Stakes.   More

  • Betcris.com Following the 145th running of the Kentucky Derby, it was thought there would be a Triple Crown on the line, but that is no longer the case, as Kentucky Derby winner Country House will not run in the Preakness due to illness. That means there will be no Triple Crown winner this year and it ends the chances of there being a Triple Crown winner in consecutive years for the first time since 1978.   More

  • Betcris.com The Kentucky Derby is the most popular horse race around, and because of that there are plenty of wagering opportunities. There are, of course, your standard win, place and show bets, along with exactas, trifectas, superfectas and any other ectas the oddsmakers can come up with.   More

  • Betcris.com The complexion of the 145th running of the Kentucky Derby underwent a significant change when betting favorite Omaha Beach was scratched from the race this week. The colt vaulted to the top of the odds board on the strength of an impressive run at the Arkansas Derby in his final prep race, sprinting past Improbable and Country House. Omaha Beach remained at the top of the list earlier this week, but was scratched due to a breathing problem.   More

  • Betcris.com Looking for a lonshot with a nice payout? There are some talented horses ready to take the track on Saturday in the 145th Run for the Roses. And those thoroughbreds further down the odds board got a boost this week when betting favorite Omaha Beach was scratched due to an entrapped epiglottis, which is a medical term for a breathing abnormality.   More

  • Betcris.com We’re less than two weeks away from the 145th running of the Kentucky Derby and the odds are taking shape. We typically see a favorite emerge by the end of April, but that hasn’t been the case this year. Several different horses have been at the top of the odds board over the past few weeks, and with all the prep races out of the way, Omaha Beach is currently at the top of the list with odds of +545. Earning that spot on the list has been beneficial with the favorite winning each of the last five Kentucky Derby races.   More

  • Betcris.com The Run for the Roses is still a month away, but a number of three-year olds have stood out and the first look at the early odds has Improbable as the betting favorite at +600. Several horses still have qualifying runs ahead of the May 4 Kentucky Derby and the field will have a maximum of 20 horses. The odds are fluid and will change as we get closer to post time, but count on a Bob Baffert-trained horse, or several of them, to be among the favorites when the bell rings. Improbable and second favorites Game Winner and Roadster are all trained by Baffert, who worked with triple-crown winner Justify last year.   More

  • Betcris.com Justify is looking to add his name to the most prestigious list in horse racing. Only 12 horses have been able to claim the Triple Crown, and only one, American Pharoah, has been able to do it since 1978. Justify will be the first horse to have a chance to win the Triple Crown at the Belmont Stakes since American Pharoah, and he will be looking to start a new streak. Before American Pharoah did it, 13 straight horses had won the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness Stakes, only to fall short in the last leg.   More

  • Betcris.com The second leg of the Triple Crown, the Preakness Stakes is set for Saturday at Pimlico Racecourse in Baltimore, Maryland. Kentucky Derby winner Justify is the odds-on favorite to keep his Triple Crown hopes alive against a small field of challengers. Just seven horses will take a shot at Justify in the Preakness on Saturday afternoon on NBC. Let’s look at the race and Preakness Stakes picks.   More

  • Betcris.com The Kentucky Derby takes place on Saturday, May 5 and it is expected that Justify will go off as the betting favorite. Justify is currently listed with odds of just over 3-1, while Bolt D’Oro is the second choice in the betting at odds of just over 5-1. It used to be that you never wanted to bet the Kentucky Derby favorite, but recently that has not been the case, as the favorite has won the Kentucky Derby the last five years. Let’s look at the latest Kentucky Derby odds and the top contenders.   More

  • Betcris.comFor horse racing fans, this is flat out the greatest week of the year.
