Kentucky Derby Odds - Longshots to Follow


Longshots of 50 to 1 don't cash all that often in sports betting. In horse racing though, magical things happen, especially in fields of 20 horses like we have at the Kentucky Derby. Mine That Bird was the last massive longshot at 50 to 1 to win the Run for the Roses, and though we aren't sure there are any colts with prices that high who can ultimately win this year, there's definitely some good value on the board with some of the ponies in the middle of the pack.

Creator ( +1615 )

The Arkansas Derby winner was a slow starter in his career, as it took him a stunning six races to break his maiden. That's not good at all, but what is good is the fact that he won the Arkansas Derby going away against a potentially really good field.

Creator is a big closer like so many others in this field, and he's the only colt we know that has the distance in him to cover the 1 1/4 miles. The longer the race, the better this former turf horse seems to be. That could play well, especially if the conditions are less than ideal at Churchill Downs on May 7.

Mo Tom ( +2377 )

Trainer Thomas Amoss needs himself a new jockey to put on Mo Tom. He's been through a couple options with no real success, but a really good jockey would've won him the Louisiana Derby and the Risen Star Stakes. This colt has been checked up a ton at the wire of races, and we know that he's got better in him than this.

He was the best horse in the field at the Fair Grounds as we saw it, and there's a reason that he was the 2 to 1 favorite at the Louisiana Derby instead of Gun Runner, the winner of the Risen Star Stakes.

Mo Tom has tremendous value at the Derby at a price of nearly 25 to 1.

Danzing Candy ( +4050 )

Prime Power currently has Danzing Candy rated as the second best horse in the field at the Kentucky Derby, and that alone should have some eyebrows raising. He's one of the rare horses in this field which is going to go out for some early speed, and there's a real chance that he can go wire-to-wire at the Derby.

He ran a whopping 104 Beyer Speed Rating to win the San Felipe Stakes over Mor Spirit and Exaggerator, and though he didn't do the job at the Santa Anita when he ran out of gas, he was still an interesting selection. We're not sure if Danzing Candy really has the distance in him, but if he does, in a field full of closers, he could be the rare starter to stand out.

At a price of 40 to 1, we're willing to take our chances if he's got Mike Smith on his back once again.
