Lookin at Lee Odds to Win 2017 Kentucky Derby

Lookin at Lee had 18-1 odds of winning the 2017 Kentucky Derby after being selected for the dreaded outer number one post position Wednesday.

The number one post has seen eight wins but the last one was Ferdinand in 1986 (31 years ago).

Those 8 wins can often be deceptive.

From KentuckyDerby.com:

Post 1 for many years had the distinction of yielding the most Kentucky Derby winners. However, only Ferdinand (1986) has won from that post since 1964. These days, when full fields of close to 20 have become the norm, post 1 is seen as a disadvantage as whoever breaks from there literally faces the prospect of running into the inner rail not too many strides out of the gate. The horse will either have to break very quickly and get ahead of his rivals to avoid getting shuffled back, which is more unlikely than not, or will have to be taken back to avoid getting squeezed down inside, which means yielding precious tactical position.

Lookin at Lee finished strong in the all-important Arkansas Derby in 3rd place but has not had a first place finish in graded races. 

Sorry Lookin at Lee, you won’t be on our list of options this year.
