A win in the Kentucky Derby is the most coveted prize of them all.

The current odds to win this year’s race changed dramatically when it was announced that the odds-on-favorite Eskendereya would not run in Saturday’s race due to filling in his leg. This is the second year in a row that the Derby favorite had to pull out of the race.

Last year Quality Road was a late scratch, possibly opening the door for 50-1 shot Mine That Bird to pull off the upset.

The new favorite for Saturday is Lookin at Lucky at +200. Trained by Bob Baffert, this horse won the Eclipse Award as the Two Year Old Champion Male.

As a three year old he won the grade II Rebel Stakes at Oaklawn on 13th, but stumbled to a third place finish in the Santa Anita Derby in his final prep race. Bet on the Kentucky Derby

Sidney’s Candy is currently +300 and will most likely go off as the second favorite come Saturday. This is trainer John Sadler’s prized entry into the Derby and already a Triple Crown winner of sorts having won the San Vicente Stakes, the San Felipe Stakes, and the Santa Anita Derby all at Santa Anita Racetrack earlier this season.

Things get a bit more interesting from there as the next group of horses come in at +1000.

Awesome Act, Ice Box, Dublin, Noble’s Promise, and Super Saver all fall into this category. The most notable horse from this group would be Ice Box, who won the grade I Florida Derby on March 20th.

Another group of strong contenders at +1200 include American Lion, Endorsement, and Mission Impazible.

Mission Impazible is trained by Todd Pletcher, who has a number of horses in the Derby field. He comes into this race having won the grade II Louisiana Derby on March 27th in his final prep race.

When you look at the rest of the field, a couple of possible long shots jump out as having a legitimate chance to win this race.

My top picks would be Paddy O’Prado and Stately Victor who are both at +2500. Paddy O’Prado, trained by Dale Romans finished a strong second in the grade II Blue Grass Stakes his last time out.

The horse he lost to was Stately Victor, who won this race as a 40-1 long shot.
