Super Saver early betting favorite at 7-1

Email

LOUISVILLE, Ky. - Advance wagering into the 136th Kentucky Derby suggests the race could produce the longest-priced favorite in Derby history, with Super Saver being the 7-1 choice after $340,544 was bet into the win pool Friday. Only one other Derby starter, Lookin At Lucky at 9-1, was less than double digits.

At the conclusion of the 12-race Friday card at Churchill Downs, four horses were next in line at 11-1 in the 20-horse field: Ice Box, Paddy O'Prado, Devil May Care, and Sidney's Candy. The longest shot was Discreetly Mine at 41-1, with three horses at 25-1 being the next longest shots.

The highest favorite in race history was Harlan's Holiday, who was seventh at 6-1 in 2002.

Meanwhile, the lowest will-pay on the two-day Kentucky Oaks-Derby double wager combining Blind Luck as the Oaks winner ends with Lookin At Lucky, with a $1 double returning $11.20. The longest double ends with Homeboykris ($154.60 for $1). Handle was $300,651.

Also, with Rachel Alexandra defeated as a lead-off single on many a Friday pick six ticket at Churchill, the carryover into Derby Day is $154,163. The Saturday pick six, a $2 minimum, runs from races 7 to 12.

Below are early odds on the Derby and the will-pays for the Oaks-

Derby Double.
