Keen Ice Kentucky Derby Odds
CHURCHILL DOWNS, KY (The Spread) - After failing to finish in the money in the Louisiana Derby, Keen Ice will look to surprise at the Kentucky Derby on Saturday.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, Keen Ice is 40/1 to win this weekend's Kentucky Derby, putting him in the same odds group as Bolo, Danzig Moon, Mr Z, Ocho Ocho Ocho, and War Story. American Pharoah is currently the favorite at 9/4 odds.
Before finishing fourth in the Louisiana Derby behidn International Star, Stanford and War Story, Keen Ice placed third in the Grade 2 Risen Star behind International Star and War Story. He also finished fifth in the Grade 2 Holy Bull and third in the Grade 2 Remsen.
There was question of whether or not Keen Ice would even run in the Kentucky Derby but once the news was announced last week that Madefromlucky would not be running at Churchill Downs, Keen Ice was in. Perhaps the long shot to even crack the field will surprise on Saturday.
Keen Ice drew the No. 14 post position, which has produced two winners in the history of the race. The last victor that came out of the No. 14 post was all the way back in 1961, when Carry Back won that year's Kentucky Derby.
