The 2017 Kentucky Derby field will continue to take shape this week with the announcement of post positions, which will happen Wednesday morning at Churchill Downs. Those positions have a chance to alter Derby week betting odds with Classic Empire and Always Dreaming currently penciled in as the race’s co-favorites with 4-to-1 odds.
But the 2017 Kentucky Derby field is wide open and has a chance for surprises to emerge from the middle of the pack. Always Dreaming is the favorite to watch as an “aggressive and strong colt,” but watch Irap at 28-to-1 odds as a darkhorse, writes handicapper Jon Price of SportsInformation Traders.com for Forbes.
Ahead of Saturday’s Run for the Roses, Churchill Downs will play host to the highly anticipated post draw for the 2017 Kentucky Derby on Wednesday.While the draw doesn’t necessarily make or break the chances of most horses, getting pinned to the rail or being forced to start too far outside can make things far more challenging for jockeys in the first leg of the Triple Crown.
Here is all the information you need to watch the post draw, along with a closer look at some of the Kentucky Derby’s top contenders.The Derby features 3-year-olds racing 1 1/4 miles. Horse racing officials say approximately 22,000 thoroughbreds were foaled in North America in 2014 and about 1 percent of the crop will be nominated for the so-called Run for the Roses.
