Irish War Cry Kentucky Derby Odds – Draws Worst Post

Written by:
Published on:

Irish War Cry odds to win the 2017 Kentucky Derby opened at 6-1 immediately following the post position draw.


As one of the early favorites we should start to see some distance between Irish War Cry, Classic Empire, Always Dreaming and McCracken after drawing in a position that has NEVER won a Kentucky Derby, that would be post position 17.

His odds remained unchanged from earlier in the week.

Irish War Cry has a few wins under his belt already including the Holy Bull and the Wood Memorial.

“It was the only time I worked him since the Wood, by design. That's what I do. We don't usually breeze until three weeks after a race,” Motion said. “I told Rajiv to try and go off in 13 [seconds] which is right what they did on the money, and he finished up in 13 and change. I don't think it could have gone any better. It was perfect.”
