Kentucky Derby 2010 Favorites: The odds for the Kentucky Derby 2010 are everywhere, and the one constant that everyone seems to be mentioning is Lookin At Lucky as the clear-cut, sports betting odds favorite to win the Kentucky Derby 2010. But is there an upset brewing at Churchill Downs this weekend? After the Post Position Draw was announced, one can easily make the argument that neither of the top-three projected sports betting odds favorites will win this race.
“I heard about a redraw,” said Lookin At Lucky’s Hall of Fame trainer, Bob Baffert. “Is he still the favorite? We got that going for us. We just have to hope our horse runs huge.”
After drawing the No.1 Post Position, which is usually not a favorable spot to be in against the rail, Lookin At Lucky [2/1] will have to overcome various factors to live up to the title of early sports betting odds to win Kentucky Derby 2010 Favorite.
“I just don’t remember a horse of this caliber being in the one hole since I’ve come here,” said Baffert, a three-time Derby winner. “I’d rather be outside, less things going on. You can get caught down there and hit the brakes.”
The reason why that position isn’t one anyone wants to be in is because of the traffic that’s usually created at the first turn. The best-case scenario for Lookin At Lucky is to perhaps break away from the pack early in order to avoid getting jammed on the inside.
“There’s no use in crying about it,” said Lookin At Lucky co-owner, Mike Pegram. “It’s better to have a good trip than a good post position.”
