2020 Holy Bull Stakes Race Favorites, Longshots and Predictions

2020 Holy Bull Stakes Race Favorites, Longshots and Predictions – The road to Kentucky Derby heats up with the 2020 edition of the Holy Bull Stakes Race that will feature an early favorite for the prestigious event. Seven three-year-old horses enter in this 1 1/16 mile (1.709-kilometer) race starting on February 1, 5:04 PM ET.

The horseracing spectacle can be viewed on television through Fox Sports 2. Online audiences can look forward to live stream through Gulfstream Park and Hipica TV. The USD250,000 annual showcase is sort of a primer for thoroughbred racing bettors to check if the pre-Kentucky Derby top bet Tiz The Law is for real or a longshot entry will emerge and give the derby favorite a run for his money.

The Race

The 2020 Holy Bull Stakes is a Grade 3 race that is part of the “Road to the Kentucky Derby” series in which the top four finishers will gain valuable points to qualify for the first leg of the US Triple Crown series. The stakes race is not just a Kentucky Derby primer. It is the first part of Gulfstream Park’s three-race series for the year. The Fountain of Youth Stakes, the second of the series, will take place on February 29. The Florida Derby marks the conclusion of the horseracing triumvirate in Gulfstream Park on March 28.

Betting on Horse Racing at the 2020 Holy Bull Stakes Race

Despite finishing third in the Grade 2 Kentucky Jockey Club Stakes, online sportsbooks favor Tiz The Law, the son of Constitution and trained by Barclay Tagg, to win it all in the Holy Bull Stakes. The bay has been a consistent performer in previous races. This includes winning the Champagne at Belmont Park by four lengths and the 6 1/2 furlong maiden special weight race at the Saratoga Race Course. The horse aced five test runs in Florida in preparation for the stakes race and with Manuel Franco riding the horse, there seems to be no problem taking home the top spot in this race.

He will meet two other contenders seeking valuable Kentucky Derby points. First is Toledo, which placed first in a seven-furlong maiden special weight race at the Aqueduct Racetrack in November and second in the six-furlong MSW race at Belmont Park. The three-year-old son of Into Mischief is trained by Chad Brown. His starting position may be problematic at the No1 post. With Irad Ortiz Jr riding Toledo, he can pull off a big surprise if Tiz The Law falters down the stretch.

Mayberry Deputy may meddle into the Tiz the Law-Toledo duel and his December victory in a one-mile race at Gulfstream Park proves that he can contend. The chestnut son of Majesticperfection is capable of staying in stride with Toledo and Tiz the Law and is a solid bet to steal the race win with Julien Leparoux riding.

2020 Holy Bull Stakes Race Betting Favorites – Odds

  • Toledo 7-2
  • Uncork the Bottle 12-1
  • Tiz the Law 3-5 (top favorite)
  • Ete Indien 6-1
  • Clear Destination 20-1
  • Relentless Dancer 8-1
  • Mayberry Deputy 15-1


It will be a three-horse fight with Tiz the Law expecting to emerge victorious in the Holy Bull Stakes. Toledo can go stride by stride with the top choice. In the end, it will be Tiz the Law taking home the stakes race.
