2011 Kentucky Derby Future Odds - Vegas

New, 4 comments

The official 2011 Kentucky Derby Future Wager ended last weekend with "the field" edging out Uncle Mo as the betting favorite (2/1 to 7/2) in Pool 1.  The end of the first round of wagering doesn't mean that you can't still get a piece of a Derby horse prior to Pool 2 as Las Vegas has you covered.  Below are the top 20 betting interests offered at the Wynn Las Vegas (via Brisnet.com).

I've also attached a link to the current 2011 Triple Crown file with prep race results, current graded earnings and Vegas odds.

-I guess somebody really liked the way The Factordominated the San Vicente last Sunday as his odds have dropped like a stone from 250/1 to 18/1.  The speedy Bob Baffert colt is now 4th on the board with Mucho Macho Man.  Hmmm...seems a bit low off a single 7 furlong win, but if he were to continue to progress towards the Derby that will probably be a lot higher than you'd get on Derby day.

-Uncle Mo, Dialed In and To Honor and Servehave settled in nicely as the top three betting interests, something that probably won't change unless one of them throws in an absolute clunker in the next several weeks.

-Several of the colts on the above list have yet to make a start in 2011 - Uncle Mo, To Honor and Serve, Astrology, and Stay Thirsty.

-I had to look up Crimson Chinadue to the fact that I had no clue who this colt was and why he's 40/1 on the board.  He's a English trained son of Giant's Causeway out of a Mr. Greeley mare that has two career starts across the pond, one of which was a win in the Wolverhamption Maiden Stakes at Wolverhampton on November 25th.  He came to North America and scored nicely in a 9 furlong Optional Claimer on the grass at Gulfstream Park on February 16th. If you can figure out why that would cause people to bet him down to 40/1 to win the Kentucky Derby, you're smarter than I.
