Kentucky Derby Betting – Odds on 2016 Kentucky Derby

Kentucky Derby Betting

2017 Kentucky Derby odds will be on the board for the greatest two minutes in sports on Saturday, May 6th. A full field of 20 horses is expected on Saturday with one of the most wide open fields ever for the Kentucky Derby.

143rd Run for the Roses

The Kentucky Derby is the first race of the U.S. Triple Crown of Thoroughbred Racing – though it was the last to be created in 1875. Held at the 11⁄4-mile dirt track at Churchill Downs in Louisville, “The Most Exciting Two Minutes In Sports” was notable last year because its winner American Pharaoh went on to become the first horse to win the Triple Crown in 37 years (the previous one had been Affirmed in 1978), along with the oldest and first Hispanic jockey to win the award, Victor Espinoza. For the 2017th Run of the Roses the odds-on favorite is Classic Empire (odds 4-1at Kentucky Derby Future Wager Pool ) . Experts who have years of predicting who the winner will be in the Kentucky Derby betting event place Classic Empire in their top 2 predictions to win the race. Other contenders for the 143th edition of the Kentucky Derby include Irish War Cry, McCracken, and Always Dreaming.

Big Payouts Expected

Classic Empire is favorite but Irish War Cry, McCracken, and Always Dreaming are following up close so since there is not likely to be an overwhelming favorite this year in Kentucky Derby betting you can count on some big payoffs. Gamblers will be looking at the exacta, trifecta and superfecta to hit the big score. Last year it was Nyquist winning the race as the second choice in the betting. Even with three of the logical contenders coming in first, second and third, the trifecta still paid out over $1,168 dollars for a $1 bet and the $1 superfecta paid out over $101,000.

Full Field Expected

It is said that this will be one of the most exciting Kentucky Derby’s yet. McCraken has not been able to be beaten in three starts at Churchill Downs and has been seen performing pretty impressive workouts on the main track in the last few days. Irish Cry seems to be in a very good condition as he looks rested and ready for the action. Hence is another one Kentucky Derby betting fans have to watch out for as the record he holds speaks for itself.  Having said this, this year’s Run for the Roses will make history without a doubt as one of the toughest calls in horseracing betting.
