This Saturday, Oaklawn Park Race Track in Hot Springs, Arkansas will showcase some horses who could battle it out at Churchill Downs next month, in one of the final tune-up races for the Kentucky Derby.
Improbable, who is currently the second favorite to win the Kentucky Derby, will be the favorite heading into race day at odds of 8/5. Omaha Beach and Long Range Toddy are two other Kentucky Derby hopefuls who will battle with Improbable this week.
In this article I will outline the morning line odds for the 2019 Arkansas Derby, give my pick for the winner of the race and also provide a 3 step guide to betting on the Arkansas Derby online at BetOnline.ag.
2019 Arkansas Derby Odds
Here are the morning line odds for this years Arkansas Derby. The odds will change as the race approaches depending on the amount of money wagered on each horse.
- Improbable 8/5
- Six Shooter 30/1
- Omaha Beach 2/1
- Tikhvin Flew 30/1
- Laughing Fox 20/1
- Gray Attempt 8/1
- Galilean 10/1
- Country House 12/1
- One Flew South 50/1
- Jersey Agenda 30/1
- Long Range Toddy 5/1
This is shaping up to be a two horse race with Improbable and Omaha Beach expected to battle it out for the win. Long Range Toddy, Gray Attempt, Galilean and Country House also look to factor into the result.
I like Gray Attempt at 8/1 in this spot. I think people are sleeping on this horse even though he’s won 4 of his last 5 races this year, including a win over Long Range Toddy. He had a bad outing a couple races ago, but he bounced back with a win and I think this is a horse that does what it takes to finish the race first.
I don’t believe Improbable and Omaha Beach are as big of favorites as the line indicates, which is why I think there is definite value in Gray Attempt at 8/1.
Play: Gray Attempt 8/1
