Derby Day Approaches

Post positions were drawn on Wednesday for the 2013 Kentucky Derby. Churchill Downs oddsmaker Mike Battaglia had been talking about making Verrazano the favorite for almost a month, but after the post positions were drawn he instead chose to make Orb the 7-2 choice. Verrazano is his second pick at 4-1.

The odds will likely change KD-2013-MLon all twenty horses entered for Saturday’s contest by the time the gates open, but the morning line odds do offer a way to eliminate nearly half the field from consideration. Based on the morning line odds, these are the horses whose past performance records I will be scrutinizing over the next few days as I attempt to find two or three horses worthy of a wager should their odds warrant a bet.
