Latest Kentucky Derby Future Book Odds


The three 3-year-old colts who were noteworthy winners last Saturday – Out of Bounds, Alpha, and Discreet Dancer – are now among the top 12 betting interests for the Kentucky Derby. That is according to the future book Derby odds just released by Wynn Las Vegas, one of the few Las Vegas race books that still offer future book Derby wagering.

Discreet Dancer, who ran off with an allowance race at Gulfstream for his second impressive victory there from as many career starts, was pegged at 20-1.

Alpha, who rebounded from a beating in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile with a decisive score in the Count Fleet Stakes at Aqueduct, now stands at 25-1.

And Out of Bounds, who raised his game in his first start around two turns to take the Sham Stakes at Santa Anita, is surprisingly the highest price of the three at 30-1.

Right now, Liaison, winner of the CashCall Futurity, and Union Rags, winner of the Champagne and narrowly beaten runner up in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile, are co-favorites at Wynn for the Derby at 12-1 each.

Hansen, winner of the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile, is currently third choice at 18-1.

Joining Discreet Dancer at 20-1 are Creative Cause, winner of the Norfolk and close third in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile, and Rousing Sermon, a close second in the CashCall Futurity.

Pegged at 25-1 along with Alpha are Algorithms, who made it 2 for 2 with an allowance victory at Gulfstream last month, Ever So Lucky, runner up in the Kentucky Jockey Club Stakes, and Gemologist, winner of the Kentucky Jockey Club.

Rounding out the top 12 at 30-1 along with Out of Bounds is Secret Circle. Secret Circle finished second at the heavy favorite to Out of Bounds in the Sham.

Some of my same thoughts Mike regarding Santiva on Saturday. Although, I was thinking more on the lines of Place/Show. At any rate, could be a nice addition to a exotic play TP

We are getting closer to a TC. You may say why...with a 20 horse crap shoot in the Derby, you have to be lucky AND good. You'd be right...initialy...but the crop of foals that are coming out...Bernardini's, Tapit's, Empire Makers, Curlin's, Steet Sense/Cry etc.. the chances are that with the Fillies and Mares that are dominating RA, Zenyatta, Rags, Royal Delta, etc. that the tide will turn soon to colts. I see within the next five years a TC winner and maybe a colt for the ages. It will be a large colt that will race greenly around one turn...but win. It will win it's first two turn race at the wire. It will lead up to the Derby with a dominating performance. It will win the Derby and Preakness handily. Then it will finish the Belmont in dominant fashion and promptly be sold to IEAH stables. Despite that, it will win the Haskell and move onto the classic where it will win going away. Oh well...it's nice to dream.....

Agree completely, Turfdocta - When I had Eskanderaya (spelling?) at 20 something to 1, and he didn't even go, that was it for me. I also had Drosselmeyer, whom I gave up on before his Belmont win. I guess if you have $$$ to burn and want to take a small shot, fine. Otherwise, no. Now we even have Derby future exactas (ridiculous). What's next - Having a future pick-6 on the Derby day card? Having a Derby superfecta future bet? No way, no thanks!

Out of Bounds has the fattest rump that I have seen in a long time. His big butt will help him get the distance down the stretch.
