Kentucky Derby 2011 Favorites

The Kentucky Derby 2011 favorites include four horses with single digit odds (even to 10/1 payouts) at SBG Global heading into Saturday. 

With Uncle Mo scratched effective the day before the race, Dialed In had his odds slashed at a number of online sportsbooks.  But at SBG Global, Dialed In was at a very generous 4/1 or +400 odds.  

Dialed In won a cool million early last month at the Florida Derby, which has helped propel him to favorite status. 

"There is just something about him," trainer Nick Zito said in regard to Dialed In. "He's not a big, big horse. He's just got a very good heart. I think he's got what they call a strong will. You should love all your horses, which I do, but there is something very special about him."

He’ll be racing from the number 8 spot, which has provided two winners in the past five years. 

The other Kentucky Derby 2011 favorites are Nehro at +600 odds and Midnight Interlude and Mucho Macho Man, both at +1000.

Nehro has gotten a boost since Uncle Mo’s departure.

Nehro is coming off a couple of near misses in the Louisiana and Arkansas Derbys.

“He’s giving every sign that he’s happy,” Nehro owner Ahmed Zayat said. “It’s so hard to win this race. There’s so many variables, it’s all traffic. I don’t believe necessarily the fastest horse wins this race, it’s who gets the trip and you need a lot of luck.”

While Mucho Macho Man is becoming one of the top three favorites at most online sportsbooks, Midnight Interlude appears to be coming out of nowhere with his shortening odds. 

Midnight Interlude has improved with each race he’s run.  He is the winner of the Santa Anita Derby.  Being trained by Bob Baffert improves his odds of winning by default.

Some books had him at 9/1 odds or even shorter.
