Samraat Horse

Samraat Odds to Win: Horse Will Go Off at Double-Digits

Samraat is listed with odds of 10-1 at BetPhoenix Racebook to win the 2014 Kentucky Derby. The horse comes into this race having won five of six starts. He doesn’t have a high profile trainer or a high profile jockey but the horse is getting some action in Kentucky Derby odds.

Samraat 10-1

The horse is listed with odds of 10-1 to win the Kentucky Derby. He could end up going off with odds of 12-1 or more depending upon how much action the favored California Chrome takes.

Samraat is trained by Rick Violette, Jr. and he is ridden by Irad Ortiz. The horse is owned by My Meadowview Farm. The sire is Noble Causeway and the Dam is Little Indian Girl from Indian Charlie.

Samraat has won five of his six career starts with his only loss coming in the Wood Memorial where he finished second. There are not many horses as consistent as Samraat as he is always right near the lead. The key for Samraat in the Kentucky Derby will not be to get stuck behind a speed horse.

Samraat’s trainer Rick Violette, Jr. said that there are some good horses in this year’s Kentucky Derby. “I think we've got a bunch of really nice horses in this field.” he said, “California Chrome has a target on his back, but some of the other horses, we haven't seen their best days."

The concern for Samraat is a fast pace that could have the horse running out of gas at the wire. "He's very ratable," Violette said. "We've ridden him aggressively, but because he can go into neutral after getting a position is what makes him so valuable. We're able to put him behind the speed, and if nobody else goes, we'll be on the lead."


Samraat is a horse that you have to consider in the exotics as he has a chance to finish in the money. It may be too much to ask the horse to win the Derby but if he gets a great trip and a good pace it is not out of the question.
