Master Plan Odds to Win 2017 Kentucky Derby

Master Plan had 30-1 odds of winning the 2017 Kentucky Derby after being selected for the number 20 post position, one of the more dreaded post positions.

Regarding the 20 spot, from KentuckyDerby.com:

The outermost post, 20, sees the horse breaking very close to the outside rail. Again, the forced use of early speed to secure decent position is one option, or taking far back and losing a lot of ground is the other. Big Brown, who was generally several lengths superior to everyone else in his crop, in 2008 became the first horse ever to win from that post, but as the Derby is generally more contentious horsemen hope to avoid the 20 if at all possible (although they will take 20 over 1 if given the option).

Master Plan won the OBS Championship back in January and finished 3rd in the UAE Derby.

Just as we noted with Thunder Snow, the travels present an instant disadvantage for horses being shipped out from the Middle East.
