2011 Kentucky Derby Contenders

The 2011 Kentucky Derby contenders based on the odds of even to +2000 or 20/1 included:

ArchArchArch at 11/1 (was at 14/1)

Dialed In – the favorite at +275 (was at +250)

Mucho Macho Man at 10/1 (remains steady)

Shackleford +1350 (remains steady)

Soldat +1100 (remains steady)

Nehro +450 (remains steady)

Midnight Interlude +1400 (was +1200)

Master of Hounds +1800 (was +1600)

 

All odds courtesy of Bookmaker.com

It’s a bit of a surprise to us at Gambling911.com to see Soldat steady at 12/1 while Midnight Interlude has odds of 14/1 now compared to 12/1 earlier since both horses are considered good runners in the mud and it was looking more and more likely that rain could hit Churchill Downs this afternoon.  Midnight Interlude, in fact, could have the best value heading into the Noon Eastern Time hour at 14/1 since we believe his odds could be slashed with more betting action coming in.

Dialed In and Nehro remained the two favorites but there has not been much of a change in the odds.  Dialed In was getting slightly more value now at Bookmaker.com with nearly 3/1 odds

 

Elsewhere,

Stay Thirsty odds have gone from +2500 to +2300.

Santiva was at +2350 from +2500.

Decisive Moment +3000

Pants On Fire +2400 (was +2700)

Animal Kingdom +2200 (was +2000)

Twice the Appeal +2500

Comma to the Top

Brilliant Speed +2500 (was at +2000)

Twinspired +3500

Watch Me Go +5500
