Lucky Draws Rail

The post positions for the 2010 Kentucky Derby have been set and as luck (no pun intended) would have it, the favorite Lookin at Lucky has drawn the rail.

Bet 2010 Kentucky Derby Odds

Lookin at Lucky immediately became a 2/1 favorite to win the Kentucky Derby 136 after the opening favorite, Eskendereya, was ruled out last weekend. Lookin at Lucky’s odds then went to 7/2 on Tuesday and has now settled in at 9/2 following the announcement of the post positions.

Ice Box (18/1) will start in the second post position, while Noble’s Promise (14/1) will come out of the third, Super Saver (14/1) out of the fourth and Line of David (35/1) out of the fifth. Sidney’s Candy, which has the next best odds behind Lookin at Lucky at 15/2, will come out of the 20th post position, which is the last.

The favorite in the Kentucky Derby has had a fair amount of success, which bodes well for Lookin at Lucky. While 2009 favorite Friesan Fire finished a disappointing 18th, 2008 favorite Big Brown came in first, as did 2007 favorite Street Sense. Previous to seventh place finishes in back-to-back years by Sweetnorthernsaint (2006) and Bellamy Road (2005), favorite Smarty Jones won the 2004 Kentucky Derby. Fusaichi Pegasus also won in 2000 as the favorite.
