Can Epicenter Be The Kentucky Derby Winner?
- Back Epicenter To Win The Kentucky Derby @ 7/2 With BetOnline
The Steve Asmussen-trained Epicenter has been near the head of the Kentucky Derby for over a month, since he won easily at Fairgrounds racecourse on the 26th March in the Louisiana Derby – therefore, there is every chance Epicenter will be the winner of the 2022 Kentucky Derby. Oh, and last year’s Kentucky Derby winner – Mandaloun – also ran in the Louisiana Derby.
That win was only Epicenter’s fourth career start and having notched three wins from those opening runs (a close second in the other) he’s a classy 3 year-old colt with bags more potential – he looks a worthy Kentucky Derby favourite.
Epicenter’s trainer – Steve Asmussen – will be looking for his first win in the Kentucky Derby, but regular jockey – Joel Rosario – is no stranger to winning the Churchill Downs race after scooping the prize in 2013 on a horse called Orb.
Those looking elsewhere for the 2022 Kentucky Derby winner might cling to the fact that all four runs for Epicenter have come on the same track – Fairgrounds. Therefore, will he be just as good away from that venue? However, with both tracks left-handed ovals there is every chance the Churchill Downs course will be just fine for Epicenter.
Epicenter’s main dangers according to the betting are the Chad C Brown-trained Zandon and the Mike E Smith-ridden Taiba, who both also head into Saturday’s Kentucky Derby off the back of nice wins.
