PT 2: 2020 Louisiana Derby Betting

Punters will find him priced around a 7/2 listing in the ante post market at the time of this writing. 


Modernist is the next highest ranked contender and the bookmakers have him floated around a 9/2 listing. He was able to get the better of Enforceable in the Risen Star and that his second victory on the bounce so far this season after breaking his maiden at Fair Grounds back in January. 

His running style sets him up nicely for this race and there is every chance that he will excel with the added distance that he faces in this race. Bill Mott has plenty of good contenders in his barn but this one seems to be one of the most impressive and many expect good things to come from him. 

Lightly raced Major Fed has some solid options ahead of him on the road to the Derby over the next couple of months and the Greg Foley-trained contender has a lot of talent that he’s demonstrated in his three previous races. He was right in the mix towards the end of the Risen Star and he could be set to take another step forward here. 

You’ll find Major Fed priced around a 6/1 listing at this point and that price could drop as we get closer to the Louisiana Derby itself. 


Both Silver State and Mailman Money can be backed around a 7/1 price tag and both look to be interesting options here to fill in the lower parts of your exotic tickets. $2,000,000 purchase Chestertown is being considered for this race as well and he’s trading around a 10/1 price tag right now to get the job done.
