Billings To Be Represented At The Kentucky Derby!
Frac Daddy, co-owned by Ken Schlenker from Billings is racing in the Kentucky Derby this Saturday at Churchill Downs. He'll be racing from post number 18 on the far outside which trainer Ken McPeek says suits him because the "horse doesn't like dirt in his face". The 3 year old colt, who was sired by Scat Daddy and brood mare Skipper's Mate by Skip Away, has been listed on the morning line with odds of 50 to 1 to win which matches the longest odds in the field.
There is a certain amount of irony in Frac Daddy drawing post #18 as his father Scat Daddy came in 18th at the Kentucky Derby in 1996 before he was retired with a tendon injury. While impressive as a 2 year old, Frac Daddy battled injuries as a 3 year old last fall with a series of spotty results but remerged with a rejuvenated second behind Overanalyze in the Grade I Arkansas Derby. If you have a TVG account you might want to consider a $2 bet on him to show as insiders think he has a much better chance than his odds would indicate.
