• Morning line betting odds for likely Kentucky Derby horses in 2016

    Suddenbreakingnews, Mo Tom, Whitmore, Outwork – 20 to 1 odds each

    Suddenbreakingnews is 3 of 8 lifetime and was second to Creator in the Arkansas Derby in his last. Trojan Nation, Oscar Nominated – 50 to 1 odds each

    Destin is trained by Todd Pletcher and he’s 3 of 5 lifetime including winning his last two stakes races at Tampa Bay Downs. He’s just 3 of 7 lifetime and needs pace to win. Mohayoman and Brody’s Cause – 12 to 1 odds each

    T-7. Mor Spirit is trained by Bob Baffert and he’s 3 of 7 lifetime including a second place finish to Exaggerator in the Santa Anita Derby in his last race.. Dale Romans trains.

    T-9. In his last start Nyquist beat favorite Mohaymen easily in the Florida Derby. Tom’s Ready – 40 to 1

    Gun Runner and Mor Spirit are both 10 to 1 odds. He’s 3 of 4 lifetime but just finished a bad 5th in a slow Wood Memorial in his last start. Whitmore is another closer who is 2 of 6 lifetime for Ron Moquett and he’s yet to win a stakes race. Gun Runner and Mor Spirit – 10 to 1 odds each

    Shagaf is also trained by Chad Brown.

    Danzig Candy is 3 of 5 lifetime, trained by Clifford Sise and he has speed to be a pace factor. Majesto is trained by Gustavo Delgado. Outwork just won the Wood Memorial for Todd Pletcher. The Patrick Gallagher trainee is in here because he ran second in the Wood Memorial in his last start. Gun Runner is trained by Steve Asmussen and he just won the Louisiana Derby but the time was slow. Keith Desormeaux is the trainer and his brother Kent rides.

    The 2016 Kentucky Derby is taking place this week on Saturday, May 7, 2016, at Churchill Downs with a 6:24 pm EDT start time and the race is on TV on NBC. Kiaran McLaughlin trains. Donnie Von Hemel trains. My Man Sam is just 1 of 4 lifetime. Oscar Nominated is just 3 of 8 lifetime but he won his last two races albeit against suspect competition.

    T-3. Mo Tom is 3 of 7 lifetime and the closer is trained by Tom Amoss. Here is a list of the morning line betting odds for likely horses for the 2016 Kentucky Derby.

    Trojan Nation is still a maiden after six races. He’s 3 of 4 lifetime and he’s got speed but the race was run in very slow time.

    Nyquist is the deserving favorite for the 2016 Kentucky Derby because he’s done nothing wrong so far in his career. The Dallas Stewart trainee does not really have tactical speed and he’s almost surely up against it racing in the 2016 Kentucky Derby.

    T-5. Nyquist has started seven races in his career and won all seven including winning the Breeders Cup Juvenile in 2015. In horse racing the trainer is the most important person in determining how good a thoroughbred horse will end up being on the racetrack.

    After unleashing a huge stretch run to win the Santa Anita Derby by 6 1/4 lengths, Exaggerator is the second choice in the betting odds at 6 to 1. The problem with Exaggerator is he’s only won four of his nine lifetime races. Not exactly a great route for winning the Kentucky Derby but he does have tactical speed. He’s just 1 of 6 lifetime but ran second to Nyquist in the Florida Derby in his last start. That has not been a successful way to win the Kentucky Derby to date.

    T-13. Nyquist – 3 to 1

    Tom’s Ready is just 1 for 9 lifetime. Creator is just 2 of 8 lifetime but he won the Arkansas Derby in his last start from well off the pace for Steve Asmussen.

    18. Danzig Candy, Majesto, My Man Sam, Shagaf, Lani – 30 to 1 odds each

    T-19. Trained by Chad Brown he just ran second in the Blue Grass but he’s another closer in a race full of them.

    2. Doug O’Neill, who won the Kentucky Derby with I’l Have Another in 2012, is Nyquist’s trainer.

    Also listed are the records for each horse as well the trainer. He is 4 for 5 lifetime. Brody’s Cause came from out of the clouds to win the Blue Grass in his last start. Lani is a horse that raced in Japan until he went and won the UAE Derby in his last start. Destin and Creator – 15 to 1 odds each

    Mohaymen went into the Florida Derby a perfect 5 for 5 but he lost as the favorite to Nyquist. Exaggerator – 6 to 1
