Bodemeister Odds 2012 Kentucky Derby Picks: It was truly exciting watching Bodemeister dominate the Grade-1 2012 Arkansas Derby on April 14, winning by 9 1/2 lengths ahead of favorite Secret Circle . Both colts were trained by Bob Baffert, probably the best in the business. Bodemeister is now one of 21 horses expected to run for the roses in the 138th running of the Kentucky Derby this Saturday, May 5.
