Chocolate Candy sweet Derby pick

Can Chocolate Candy be sweet to horse bettors on Kentucky Derby Day?

Some horse handicappers like Chocolate Candy to win in a late charge Saturday at Churchill Downs and he’s tempting value at 20/1 odds at online racebook Bovada (where they are offering a $50 bonus on a $50 deposit this week).

With the Run For the Roses looming, Derby odds have been changing as several horses were scratched in the past few days. Quality Road was going to be a factor, but he’s out.

So I Want Revenge remains the first choice to win the first leg of horse racing’s Triple Crown. He is currently 3/1 at bodog.com's online racebook, while Dunkirk and Pioneer of the Nile are second choices at 4/1.

There are other horse experts who expect Revenge to not be as sweet as chocolate in the stretch run. One veteran handicapper predicts the Revenge will fade in the stretch, opening the door for ‘closer’ horses such as Chocolate Candy and Hold Me Back.

This wasn’t a close race in 2008 as Big Brown blew away the field, followed by Eight Belles, the filly that tragically collapsed after the race. This edition of the Kentucky Derby will be closer and far more exciting.
