Kentucky Derby 136 Odds:

Sidney’s Candy opened as a 15/1 long shot to win the 2010 Kentucky Derby, before his odds improved to 15/2 on Wednesday after the post positions were drawn. According to oddsmakers from online sports book, the 3-year-old is now 6/1 to win at Churchill Downs.

Post Position:

Sidney’s Candy will start out of the No. 20 post position, which has only produced two Kentucky Derby winners since 1900. That said, Big Brown won just two years ago out of the same post position.


Very good. We think Sidney’s Candy is a great value at 6/1 and has a legitimate shot at overtaking Lookin at Lucky on Saturday. The only problem is that this will be his first time on dirt, which is an issue. Still, he has beaten Lookin at Lucky this season and is coming off of three straight wins. He has also looked comfortable so far at Churchill Downs, which is a good sign given his unfamiliarity with dirt tracks. The bottom line is that we love his chances, although we know a lot of bettors will be scared off by his inexperience on dirt.
