Holy Bull Stakes Betting – Cairo Prince Snatches An Important Win On The Prep Trail

Posted by on 2/5/2014 4:49:10 AM

Sports betting sharps may have a tough time on Saturday. The Grade-2 Holy Bull Stakes is set to be a very competitive 1 1/16 mile race run on dirt at Gulfstream Park, and the winner will likely become a name to watch on the road to the Kentucky Derby. Cairo Prince is the name you have to look out for this weekend.

What: Horse Betting
When: Saturday, January 25th, post time TBA
Where: Gulfstream Park, Hallandale Beach, FL
Pick: Cairo Prince

Almost Famous had two wins in three 2013 starts, most recently coming in first in an allowance race at Churchill Downs in November. That race was at 1 1/16 miles, which means he can handle the distance, but now this colt has to handle the step up in competition.

Big Bazinga didn’t have a great conclusion to 2013 as he was seventh in the Grade-3 Delta Downs Jackpot. That was his first start on dirt after a victory in a maiden race and a second in the Grade-3 Grey Stakes, both at Woodbine on a synthetic surface. This will be a very important race for Big Bazinga’s horse betting odds going forward on the Kentucky Derby trail.

Best Plan Yet started off 2014 with a ninth-place run in the non-graded Gulfstream Park Derby on New Year’s Day and now has three wins in seven starts. There were three months between his final 2013 start and his 2014 debut, so rust could have been an issue and Saturday should be a better gauge of where this colt is.

Cairo Prince will probably be the horse betting favorite in this event after finishing second in the Grade-2 Remsen in November, and he has two wins and a second in three career starts. This will be his third graded-stakes race, so Cairo Prince has seen this type of competition before and a win here would put his name on the map as far as the Kentucky Derby prep trail goes.

Conquest Titan won an allowance race at Churchill Downs in late November, and he probably needed it for confidence after finishing 13th at the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile. Prior to that, Conquest Titan finished fifth in the Grade-1 Breeders’ Futurity, but that was on a synthetic surface; the allowance win was on dirt, but he’ll need to prove more on Saturday.

Coup de Grace will make his graded-stakes debut after wins in allowance and maiden races last year, but this will be his first race running over a mile. This race was run at a mile before going to 1 1/16 miles this year, so Coup de Grace’s closing kick will be something to watch.

Financial Mogul finished behind Cairo Prince in the Grade-2 Nashua in early November, and he has now has two top-four results in graded-stakes races. There are horses that are getting more attention than this colt, but Financial Mogul definitely has the speed to keep up. Like a few other horses, though, he has to run this distance for the first time.

Intense Holiday came in fourth in the Remsen and the Nashua, as well as fifth in the Grade-1 Champagne in October. The results aren’t great, but it shows that he has been in big-time races before, so Intense Holiday could be a horse betting underdog to watch on Saturday. After running 1 1/8 miles in the Remsen, 1 1/16 miles shouldn’t be an issue.

Mr. Speaker needed three attempts to break his maiden, then he won the Grade-3 Dania Beach at Gulfstream Park just before Christmas. However, he has only run on turf and the big Kentucky Derby prep races are run on dirt. Mr. Speaker has a lot of potential, but keep an eye on how he does on dirt this weekend.

Our Caravan won his debut, a maiden race in the middle of December, and it was run on dirt over 1 1/16 miles at Gulfstream Park. That shows he can do it, but now he has to repeat that feat against improved competition. If he does, that is another horse that will get into the Derby conversation.

Wicked Strong came in third in the Remsen, and he has finished third or better in three starts with a victory in a maiden race over a mile. This is his first trip to Gulfstream Park, but all three races have come on dirt, so at least he is used to the surface.

How It Will Play Out

There are some extremely talented horses in this field and there are a slew of contenders to pick from. However, Cairo Prince should earn the nod.
