It's hard to believe but the 2010 Kentucky Derby is just days away.  It is the single most bet on one day event of the year.  Thus far, the runaway favorite to win the 2010 Kentucky Derby is Eskendereya at just shy of 2/1 odds at Sportsbook.com (see website here).

The only other single digit odds horses at press time just over a week prior to the big race were Lookin At Lucky (+400), Sidneys Candy (+600) and Setsuko (+1000). 

Eskendereya is trainer Todd Pletcher's biggest star and the expected favorite for the Derby in less than two weeks. The 3-year-old colt romped to wins in the Fountain of Youth and the Wood Memorial and is ranked No. 1 in the AP's final Run to the Roses Top 10 list of Derby contenders.
