Big Brown odds to win the Kentucky Derby 2008 at 3/1

Big Brown odds to win the Kentucky Derby 2008 at 3/1 Big Brown is back on the saddle, after being downgraded for a short period, the horse is once again the odds favorite to win the Kentucky Derby. The online bookmaker BodogSports has changed the odds on Big Brown to win the Kentucky Derby at 3/1, after he held odds 4/1 just a few hours ago, following the No.20 post position. But the tough post changed Big Brown odds to win the Kentucky Derby 2008 just for a short while, bettors wagering on the contender took the long odds while they lasted and pushed Big Brown back to the favorite spot with odds 3/1 to win the Derby on Saturday. Big Brown has won his three career starts by a combined 29 lengths, and was installed as the 3/1 morning-line choice by Churchill Downs odds maker Mike Battaglia after drawing the outside No. 20 post position Wednesday and now the online bookmakers also set their odds according to the Kentucky Derby linemakers projections, Big Brown holds odds to win the Kentucky Derby 3/1 at BodogSports.

 Big Brown is by Boundary, who made all eight of his starts in sprints, winning six times and recording Grade 3 wins in the A Phenomenon H. and the Roseben H.. Pensioned from stud duty in 2005, Boundary is represented by 22 black-type winners to date with his leading performers being Minardi and Pomeroy. The former, a Group 1 winner in England and Ireland as a two-year-old over six furlongs, was a disappointment when tried at a mile the following year, and Pomeroy is best known as a sprinter winning the King's Bishop S. (G1) and the Forego S. (G1), both over seven furlongs. Boundary's other graded stakes winners are Straight Line, Roxelana, Lady Belsara, Saga Novel (in Japan) and Conserve, with the last named the only one ever to win at a distance beyond a mile -- and he was at his most effective going shorter. The Average Winning Distance of Boundary's offspring is 7.1 furlongs, and one of his few runners to achieve notable route success was Mocita, a multiple stakes winner at 1 1/16 miles and second in the Sabin H. (G3) going half a furlong further. It may be pointed out however, that Mocita is out of a mare by Halo and was receiving some stout South American stamina influences from her female family.
