Kentucky Derby 2010 Homeboykris 50 to 1 Derby Picks: Homeboykris will definitely be one of the underdogs competing in the 2010 Kentucky Derby. Go to SPORTSBOOK.com to get all of the current betting odds on all of your Kentucky Derby favorites .

50 to 1 odds underdog, Homeboykris (Roman Ruler – One Last Salute by Salutely) will need to be at his best if he’s going to come close to the contenders in the 136th Kentucky Derby. Son of Roman Ruler , the colt has been winless in 2010 and hasn’t raced since his February start in the Allowance in which he finished 2nd. Bred in Maryland, Homeboykris’s higher percentage owner, Louis Lazzinnaro is still very hopeful.

KentuckyDerby.com is stating on Homeboykris’ pedigree, “Interestingly, Homeboykris’ dam is inbred to the all time great Ribot, a profound source of stamina. Although Homeboykris’ family has been undistinguished in recent decades, further back, the female line was a notable one in the first half of the 20th century, producing champions Maud Muller and Lavender Hill and handicap stalwart Mount Marcy.”

However, it seems that Homeboykris is showing promise during practice. Trainer Rick Dutrow opted to postpone prepping for the Derby for a couple of days due to the wet weather but got out there to the Churchill Downs track after Wednesday’s break. He sent the colt out for a half mile and was pleased with the 5/8 in 1:02:06 that he galloped. Although, jockey Julien Leparoux accompanied Homeboykris in practice, it’ll be Ramon Dominguez who will be riding the colt on May 1st in the Run for the Roses.

"We know we're scuffling to get there and not the player in this race," Rick Dutrow said after practice. "We're just going to play defense, sit back, and try to pick up as many horses as we can. We're be on Cloud 9 if we could pick up a check."
