Oddsmakers from online sports book have made Lookin at Lucky a 9/2 favorite to win this year’s Kentucky Derby. Sidney’s Candy has the next best odds at 15/2, while Awesome Act is 10/1 and Noble’s Promise, Super Saver and Dublin are 14/1.

While Lookin at Lucky will start on the rail for Saturday’s race, Sidney’s Candy will start at the 20th post position. Awesome Act will start at No. 16, while Noble’s Promise has the No. 3 position, Super Saver the No. 4 and Dublin the No. 17.

West Side Bernie drew the rail in the 2009 Kentucky Derby, but finished ninth. In fact, four of the first six positions failed to finish in the top 10, with West Side Bernie and Musket Man (third) being the only exceptions. Mine that Bird, who started in the eighth post position, won the Kentucky Derby 135.

Some bettors might be discouraged that Sidney’s Candy is starting in the No. 20 post position, but considering Big Brown won from that spot in 2008 should quell any fears.
