2022 Triple Crown Betting Predictions: Will This Year Give Us a New Champion?

2022 Triple Crown Betting Predictions: Will This Year Give Us a New Champion?

Every year, horse racing fans sit down to discuss the prospect of a Triple Crown. In history, just 13 thoroughbred 3-year-old equines have won the Triple Crown, arguably the most difficult feat in all of sports. The last horse to win the TC was Justify in 2018. Will 2022 produce a Triple Crown winner? Let’s try to find that out so you can plan your bets against the Triple Crown odds.

Will there be a Triple Crown This Year? | Horse Racing Betting

Triple Crown of Horse Racing

  • When: May 7 – June 11

Kentucky Derby Top Ten Points

  • Papacap
  • Rattle N Roll
  • Jack Cristopher
  • Make It Big
  • Smile Happy
  • Slow Down Andy
  • Major General
  • Dash Attack
  • Mo Donegal
  • Courvoisier

How will the lack of Bob Baffert runners affect the Kentucky Derby?

The last 2 horses to win the Crown were both trained by Bob Baffert. Bob put the saddle on American Pharoah in 2015 and Justify in 2018.

This year, Baffert may not run a 3-year-old. It’s not that Baffert doesn’t want to run any of his monster sophomores. It’s because Churchill Downs believes Baffert juiced Medina Spirit to win the 2021 Kentucky Derby.

The fact Medina died due to a heart attack after training about a month ago doesn’t help Bob’s cause. If Churchill decides the 2-year ban on Baffert runners stands, Bob may not saddle a pony in the Run for the Roses, which means none of his 3-year-olds can win the Crown. 

Will owners pull Corniche from Baffert?

Corniche is the most talented 3-year-old on the planet. Churchill Downs is so intent on shutting out Baffert that the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile winner doesn’t even show up on their Top 10 in points.

Winning the Kentucky Derby is a big deal. So if Baffert can’t run horses at Churchill, Speedway Stable, Corniche’s owners, could turn to a familiar face, Michael Stidham.

But because of Corniche’s ability, we should assume any trainer in the U.S. would be delighted to have the horse in their barn. Todd Pletcher would jump at the chance. So would Steve Asmussen, Doug O’Neil, who trains at Santa Anita like Baffert and has won a couple of Kentucky Derbies, or even Chad Brown.  

Which among the current Top Ten has the best chance of winning the Triple Crown?

Mark Casse trained Pappacap is a good racehorse. The Gun Runner sired colt comes from a Scat Daddy mare, which means he should have no trouble running 1 ½ miles, the Belmont distance. 

Pletcher’s top runner is Mo Donegal. The Grade 2 Remsen winner is sired by Uncle Mo and is from a Pulpit broodmare. 

Jack Cristopher deserves a look. Chad Brown would have saddled the first or second choice in the BC Juvenile, but decided to scratch Cristopher. If Brown can get the Champagne winner back on track, Brown could be looking at his first legit Derby contender. 

Bottom Line: Will there be a Triple Crown winner in 2022?

The easy answer is no because a Triple Crown winner has happened just 13 times in thoroughbred racing history.

But, then again, nobody really thought Secretariat would win the crown because Sham looked just as good on paper. Nobody believed Affirmed would win the TC because Alydar appeared to be the better horse.

Justify broke his maiden in the same year he won the Triple Crown. Nobody ever believed that would happen. 

That doesn’t  mean a horse will win the Crown in 2022. It does mean we should handicap some of the other contenders outside of Corniche, especially Mo Donegal, Pappacap, and Jack Cristopher, before deciding no horse will take the TC.

After all, if Corniche doesn’t run, or doesn’t perform as well with a different trainer, who knows? Maybe, the door opens for a runner like Pappacap, who finished second to Corniche twice in his last two races to end 2021, to win the Kentucky Derby, Preakness, and Belmont.

Kentucky Derby Betting Guide

The 2022 Triple Crown seasons starts now! If you haven’t been brought up to speed with this year’s top racing picks, participants or created your own betting strategy, MyBookie has all the information you need to make the big bucks on this year’s pony races.

The Kentucky Derby is one of the most popular thoroughbred horse races in the world, with hundreds of thousands of people placing bets across the globe. This year, the derby is taking place May 4th. Here’s the Ultimate Betting Guide for the Kentucky Derby and possible Triple Crown contenders.

The First Rule Of Kentucky Derby Betting

ALWAYS, place your bets as close to the start of the race as possible. It’s a great idea to get your picks in order before the race begins, however, you should try and place them as close to the start as you can. This week, it was reported that Omaha Beach was recently pulled from the Kentucky Derby, due to an entrapped epiglottis. While the announcement gave bettors ample time to change their lines, imagine what would happen if wagers were already placed. MyBookie will be posting Kentucky Derby content all Saturday long, allowing you to make confident bets with the latest news and odds.

Types of Bets For The Kentucky Derby

The team at MyBookie has created one of the largest lists of Kentucky Derby odds and futures available. While most people will be limiting their betting to ‘odds to win’ the entire race, there’s more options to choose from, giving you more opportunity for winning big during this year’s derby. Let’s take a look at your different betting options for this year’s Kentucky Derby:

2022 Kentucky Derby - Odds To Win:
If you want to make one big bet on the horse that you anticipate winning the race, this is the bet for you. If you’re looking to make this bet, here are some of the top picks to consider: Tacitus (+600), Maximum Security (+800), Improbable (+500), Game Winner (+450) and Roadster (+550). Win simply means to put money on a horse to win the race. If you like chalk Omaha Beach at 4/1, bet on Omaha Beach to win. You can find a full list of ‘Odds to Win’ odds here at the top of our Kentucky Derby page.

2022 Kentucky Derby - Odds To Place:
The word place is used to describe a wager on a horse to finish second. If you like a horse like Spinoff to run well at 30/1, but you’re not sure he’ll win, put a few bucks on him to place. With a place bet, you win your wager if the horse finishes first or second. You can find a full list of ‘Odds to Place’ odds here at the top of our Kentucky Derby page.

2022 Kentucky Derby - Odds To Show :
A show wager is betting on a horse to finish third. However, the horse only must finish first, second, or third for you to win your wager. Show wagers often don’t pay much but because there are so many horses in the Derby, the show horse often does pay way beyond what’s normal to finish third. You can find a full list of ‘Odds to Show’ odds here at the top of our Kentucky Derby page.
