We can expect the Vegas odds and various betting lines to change frequently between now and the running of the 2011 Kentucky Derby on Saturday. One big thing that will change the odds between no and post time is the announcement of the post positions. The draw for crucial positioning is scheduled for Wednesday at 5pm ET on Versus.
Once the draw is over we can expect to see the odds change as horses tendencies and history racing in different positions is analyzed by the experts and book-makers alike. For now, however, the clear favorite is Uncle Mo at +250. The long shot horse in the 137th running of the Kentucky Derby is Watch Me Go.
The winner of our Best Name In The Field Award is Archarcharch and he's at a solid +1000 as of these latest odds posted online. Here's the entire field as it currently stands.
