The odds for the Kentucky Derby have been changed a bit because the favorite, Eskendereya, is now out of the running for the 2010 Kentucky Derby. When the opening odds were released, Eskendereya was a 6/1 favorite to win the Derby.
Since Eskendereya is out of this years’ race, Lookin at Lucky (9-1) took over as the favorite. Lookin at Lucky has been the winner of five out of his eight races. He finished third at the Santa Anita Derby, which was his last race.
However the odds have changed once again, and now Super Saver is the favorite at 7-1 odds. This year Super Saver has raced in two races, but just missed first place in both of them. In the Arkansas Derby he finished second, and in the Tampa Bay Derby he finished in third place.
Super Saver’s trainer is Todd Pletcher who, although has never won the Derby, is arguably one of the best trainers in the United States. His jockey is Calvin Borel, who may know Churchill better than any other. He has been the winner for two out of the last three Kentucky Derbies.
Other contenders in the 2010 Kentucky Derby include Ice Box, Stately Victor, Dean’s Kitten, Devil May Care, Mission Impazible, Awesome Act, Homeboy Kris, and others.
The 2010 Kentucky Derby will be held on Saturday May 1, 2010 at the Churchill Downs in Louisville, Kentucky.
