The Kentucky Derby betting action has been hot and heavy since Tuesday’s post position draw. Justify has regained his status as the sole favorite for Saturday’s race, but his odds dipped from 13/4 after the draw to 7/2 at press time. Mendelssohn, the former co-favorite, has improved to 4/1. He’ll break from the far end of the main gate at post No. 14, while Justify has a more comfortable draw with post No. 7.

Audible, the third favorite, is closing in on the leaders at 13/2, up from 7/1 after drawing post No. 5. Of the four Todd Pletcher-trained horses in the Kentucky Derby, Audible is the only one breaking from the main gate; Magnum Moon, who drew post No. 16, has slipped from 7/1 to 15/2.
It’s been a see-saw ride for Bolt d’Oro (post No. 11) on the Kentucky Derby futures, and he’s on his way back down at 17/2 after checking in at 8/1. Good Magic (post No. 6) has overtaken Bolt d’Oro as the fifth favorite; the reigning Breeders’ Cup Juvenile champion was 11/1 before Tuesday’s draw, then moved up to 9/1 after the draw and again to 8/1 at press time.
