How the Kentucky Derby Betting Odds are Formulated

Now in the proceedings our Kentucky Derby Futures odds are based on performances of the contenders from their two-year-old season last year but will alter a lot during the upcoming few months as the key prep races have been staged around the country and beyond.
On the day itself the starting odds will be contained from the Pari Mutual system together with final wagering odds determined by the sum of cash in the pot overall from bettors across the country, divided by the amount of bets placed on each individual horse.
To put it a different way; there might be millions from the betting pool with very few people gambling your choice meaning possibly enormous chances, but on the other hand if the majority of people are trying for your horse its closing starting chances might be quite small.
The odds will fluctuate plenty on the Pari Mutual system through the final build-up into the race, particularly in the last couple of minutes prior to post time so do be prepared not to know what chances you’ll receive in your horse using this method ahead time.
Important Kentucky Derby Prep Races
Dozens of races have taken place going right back to last season, handing out things in the Road to the Kentucky Derby but the most valuable events in terms of points and prize money have all been run in the past few weeks.Here’s a look at who won the largest prep races this year en route to the big one in Louisville:
Gotham Stakes, Aqueduct 9th — Haikal
Tampa Bay Derby March Tacitus
Louisiana Derby, Fair Grounds By My Standards
Sunland Park Derby, Sunland Park, March 24th — Cutting on Humor
UAE Derby, Meydan 30th — Plus Que Parfait
Florida Derby, Gulfstream Park, March 30th — Maximum Security
Wood Memorial, Aqueduct, April 6th — Tacitus
Blue Grass Stakes April 6th — Vekoma
Santa Anita Derby April 6th — Roadster
Arkansas Derby, Oaklawn Park, April 13th — Omaha Beach Although the points totals are not enormous inside, the Chelmsford race is equally important as this could represent the last chance to get a British-trained runner to gain entry. This was the case last year after Gronkowski won the Burradon Stakes at Newcastle, though that race is too late to count this season since it happens on April 19.
Current Kentucky Derby 2019 Odds
The simple fact that Breeders’ Cup Juvenile scorer Game Winner is still hanging in there at the peak of the market despite being beaten into second place at his preps this spring tells us a whole lot; the market is confused and the preps haven’t thrown out a superstar like Justify in 2018.
