2015 Kentucky Derby Free Exacta Picks

The pools in the Kentucky Derby are so large that you really want to take time thinking of how to play the exacta. You can make a lot of money by investing a bit more into your handicapping and coming up with truly great exacta wagers. The idea is to pick key horses on top and fill out the second slot with horses underneath. Always think about reversing the wager for less.

Exacta Key Horses

Dortmund

The son of Big Brown looks a lot like his father. He’s as big as his father as well and should be close to the lead, meaning that he won’t have to go through a wall of horses to get to the finish line.

American Pharaoh

He’s the chalk, but it’s hard to leave him off of the tickets on top. He might just be one of those talented horses that could do anything that he wants.

Mubtaahij

It’s difficult to guage just how well he’s going to run. The competition in the UAE Derby didn’t seem all that great, but his victory was really the most impressive since he did it so easily.

Exacta Second Place Horses

Carpe Diem

Tough to like on top just because he hasn’t run anything close to some of these in here. But, he’s ultra-talented and Derby Day could be the one where he really gets good.

Frosted

His Wood Memorial was a thing of beauty. The track was strange that day, but Frosted found a way to get to the lead and coast to a victory. He could improve, like Carpe Diem, on the First Saturday in May.

Materiality

No horse has won the Derby after not racing as a two-year-old since Apollo in 1882. He doesn’t have to win. He just has to finish second for the exacta to hit.

Firing Line

His record of 2 wins and 3 seconds out of 5 lifetime starts is impressive because one of the losses was to Dortmund. This guy won the Sunland Derby by 14 ¼ lengths and jockey Gary Stevens didn’t even ask him for his best. He could be awesome on May 2.
