2020 Arkansas Derby Division 1 Odds & Picks – Bob Baffert’s Charlatan the 1/2 Favorite
The 2020 Arkanas Derby Division 1 Odds at Oaklawn Park are out for Saturday, May 2nd. The odds makers at Bovada Racebook have the odds out to bet on and Charltan is posted as the strong 1/2 favorite. This race is race #11 on the Oaklawn Park schedule Saturday with post time scheduled for 6:29 PM EST. The 500,000 G1 Arkansas Derby Division 1 will go 1 1/8 miles(9 furlongs) on dirt and has a field of 11 three-year olds.
The Arkansas Derby has been split into two divisions this year after 22 horses were entered into the field. Two horses have been scratched, one from each division, so each division will have 10 thoroughbreds in the field. Because of the unique circumstances in the horse racing sport due to COVID-19, Churchill Downs has agreed to keep the 100-40-20-10 points system for both races. This was decided mainly because there hasn’t been a Kentucky Derby points prep race since the Florida Derby on March 28th at Gulfstream Park.
Charlatan is the favorite and has 2 wins in both of his races in his career. The Bob Baffert trained colt did not run as a two-year old and had his first career race at Santa Anita Park in a Maiden Special Weight on February 16, 2020. You can watch the YouTube video below to see how he dominated in impressive fashion that day. He followed that win up with another win at Santa Anita on March 14th in an Allowance Optional Claiming race.
Charlatan is coming into the 2020 Arkansas Derby Division 1 Race with a lot of hype and expectations. In fact, he’s 2nd at 6/1 odds behind 2020 Florida Derby Winner, Tiz the Law(5/1 favorite), in the early 2020 Kentucky Derby Futures Odds at Bovada.
