The newest 2012 Kentucky Derby odds have been released, and a horse with Arizona ties leads the way. Bodemeister is owned by Bob Baffert, who was born in Southern Arizona, and he currently seems like the favorite to win this contest.
Bodemeister, who recently won the Arkansas Derby, is the favorite so far with 4-1 odds. Bodemeister is joined by Union Rags, who is slightly behind at 9-2 odds.
The other two horses aren't quite in such good shape. Daddy Nose Best is stuck at 15-1, which places him in the upper tier overall. Liaison (another Baffert-owned horse) is a 50-1 longshot, so if you really want to go high on a horse that probably doesn't have a shot, there's the one.
