Kentucky Derby Odds
The Kentucky Derby is the first leg of the US Triple Crown and is the most recognizable horse race in the world.
With 20 three-year-old thoroughbred horses racing two kilometers for the chance to win the $2 million prize at Churchill Downs, the top five contenders include: Havana, We Miss Artie, Bond Holder, Ami’s Holiday, and Cleburne.
While the odds will be in their favor, last year’s results showed that any horse is capable of winning.
Last year, Revolutionary had the best odds leading up to the 2013 Kentucky Derby.
When the race began, Palace Malice was in the lead at the first turn, but fell to Normandy Invasion heading into the stretch.At the end of the race, Orb won the 139th Kentucky Derby on that Saturday in Louisville. Golden Soul finished second while the favorite, Revolutionary finished third. Since 2000, no owner or trainer has won consecutive years at the Kentucky Derby. However, all eyes will be on jockey Calvin Borel and his horse, Revolutionary again this year. Despite coming in third last year, Borel has won three of the past six Kentucky Derbys, including two consecutive from 2009-2010.
