American Pharoah Bodog Betting Odds 146th Travers Stakes Championship
American Pharoah follows Triple Crown legends at Saratoga
A record crowd is enjoying a picture perfect day in New York as race fans await the arrival of the Ruler of the Racetrack. Looking to win his ninth straight start, American Pharoal follows Gallant Fox (1930), Whirlaway (1941), and Affirmed (1978) as just the fourth Triple Crown Champion to take on the 1¼ mile Travers Stakes on the dirt at Saratoga. Gallant Fox was upset by 100/1 longshot Jim Dandy, Whirlaway is the only TC Champ to ever claim the Travers Stakes, and Affirmed won his historic duel with Alydar but was place second due to inference in the third turn. We fully expect that the ”Big Horse” will match Whirlaway in the Travers Stakes in New York today.
Bodog sportsbook has the Ruler of the Racetrack as huge Travers Stakes chalk
Not surprising, American Pharoah is the runaway chalk on the Bodog horse racing betting board today. The King is an astronomical -400 favorite while Texas Red and Frosted are tied as a distant second choices with a +700 price. This happens when a “Super Horse” in mixed in with a filed that has proven to be a few notches below his caliber. Frosted joins Frammento, Keen Ice, Tale of Verve and Upstart as horses who were spanked on the Triple Crown trail by American Pharoah. Injuries, first to AP prior the 2014 Breeders’ Cup and then to Texas Red prior to the Kentucky Derby, have keep those two horse apart and their battle today will be front and center at Saratoga.
146th Travers Stakes Championship Call: No horse in the Midsummer Derby field at the Spa is going to take down The King today – it honestly that simple. During and ever since his rip-roaring romp in the Arkansas Derby, American Pharoal has shown that he is breathing different air than the rest of the 2015 crop of 3-year old thoroughbreds. We have been Phans of the Pharoal since we witnessed the Annihilation at Arkansas and we are looking forward to cashing in with the Ruler of The Racetrack again today. Using the post time track odds, we are going to wheel AP with 1, 4, 6, and 10 with a $2 Superfecta wager. American Pharoah really is “one special horse” folks.
