Kentucky Derby Odds - Top Contenders

Kentucky Derby odds handicapping efforts are at full speed in anticipation of the traditional first Saturday in May when fans make their final bets.

Kentucky Derby odds makers will again have a full list of the finest horses in the world on the board for Kentucky Derby wagering handicapping excitement. Eskendereya is an early big favorite with the Kentucky Derby odds.

Eskendereya has 4 wins and 1 place in 6 starts and has won his last 3 starts including the prestigious Wood Memorial on April 3.  Todd Pletcher is the trainer while John Velazquez will ride.

Lookin at Lucky is another favorite with the Kentucky Derby odds  Lookin at Lucky had won 6 out of 7 races before the Santa Anita Derby on April 3 where he finished a disappointing third.  This is still a highly popular and respected choice with gamblers.  Bob Baffert is the trainer and the jockey will be Garrett Gomez.

Sidney’s Candy will be another popular choice for handicappers with the Kentucky Derby odds.  Sidney’s Candy was the winner of the Santa Anita Derby and has won four consecutive races.  Sidney’s Candy is trained by John Sadler while Joe Talamo will get the mount.

Interactif will get a hard look from Kentucky Derby gambling fans.  Interactif had won 3 out of his first 7 races and was in the money 6 times.  Pletcher also trains Interactif.  The Jockey is slated to be Rafael Bejarano.

Odysseus has plenty going for him as well and will make for another attractive selection for the Kentucky Derby odds.  Odysseus had won 3 races in a row after finishing second in his first ever race.  Thomas Albertrani is the trainer and the jockey is Rajiv Maragh.

Dublin is considered one of the best “sleeper” picks with the Kentucky Derby odds.  Dublin had won only 2 out of 7 races and was in the money a total of 4 times.  Long time veteran D. Wayne Lucas is the trainer while Corey Nakatani will get the mount.

Other leading contenders are expected to emerge as well with many pre-Derby prep races yet to come.
