The 135th running of the Kentucky Derby is set for Saturday at Churchill Downs, marking the start of thoroughbred horse racing's Triple Crown.

BetED.com has Kentucky Derby betting odds for all 20 horses, as well as an interesting prop bet: Whether the winning saddlecloth will be an odd or even number (Odd -110; Even -110).

With Florida Derby winner Quality Road out of the ‘Run for the Roses' because of a pair of quarter-cracks, the field is wide-open.

I Want Revenge is a +250 favorite in betED.com Kentucky Derby Odds, followed by a pair of horses at +400: Dunkirk and Friesan Fire.

Pioneer of the Nile is at +500, and rounding out the top five is Papa Clem at +1000.

Quality Road was taken out of contention for the 2009 Kentucky Derby on Monday when the colt's right front foot was too sore to allow him to train.

Owned by Edward Evans, Quality Road developed a quarter-crack of the right hind foot following his win in the Florida Derby. That injury was repaired, but the second quarter-crack of the right front foot was discovered last Thursday.

Quality Road has earnings of $632,830 with three wins in four lifetime starts.

I want Revenge overcame a poor start - and several other horses - to win the Wood Memorial at Aqueduct on April 4.

Trained by Jeff Mullins, I Want Revenge is the son of Stephen Got Even, which entered the 1999 Kentucky Derby as a favorite. But it was bumped out of the gate, and finished fourteenth.

Stephen Got Even fared better in the final Triple Crown races that year, finishing fourth in the Preakness and fifth in the Belmont.
