2016 Kentucky Derby Odds

2016 kentucky derby oddsThe 142nd Kentucky Derby is slated for Saturday, May 7 as a new batch of three-year colts look to make history at the legendary Churchill Downs Racetrack. The final field has yet to be determined, but there are some Run for the Roses locks based on the latest Derby Trail point standings. At the top of that list is Steve Asmussen’s Gun Runner with 151 points; however, he is not the Derby favorite.

Bovada’s latest 2016 Kentucky Derby odds are favoring Nyquist at +350 while J. Keith Desormeaux’s Exaggerator is second with a +450 line ($100 wins $450). Those two are followed by Mohaymen (+600), Mor Spirit (+700), Destin (+900) and the aforementioned Gun Runner (+900).

Rounding out the bookmaker’s top 10 Derby favorites are Danzing Candy, Cupid, Suddenbreakingnews and Brody’s Cause at +1000, +1200, +1300 and +1400 odds, respectively.

Nyquist, who is second in the Derby Trail points with a total of 130, will enter next month’s Triple Crown opener having won all seven of his starts. The Uncle Mo sired colt’s latest conquest was the Florida Derby on April 2; the victory was its fourth Grade 1 triumph as it also captured the top spot in the Del Mar Futurity, FrontRunner Stakes and Breeders’ Cup Juvenile.

Nyquist is trained by Doug O’Neill, who won his first and only Kentucky Derby in 2012 with another Reddam Racing product, I’ll Have Another.

Exaggerator is another well experienced colt, having competed in nine races. A product of Curlin and Dawn Raid, the dark bay has three stakes wins, including the Santa Anita Derby (G1), Delta Downs Jackpot (G3) and Saratoga Special (G2).
