Recent History:

Kentucky Derby 136 Odds:

Discreetly Mine was just 12/1 when the opening odds for the 2010 Kentucky Derby were released, but then his rose to 30/1 on Wednesday when the post positions were drawn. Now, according to oddsmakers from online sports book SPORTSBETTING.com, Discreetly Mine is a 45/1 long shot to win on Saturday.

Post Position:

Discreetly Mine will come out of the No. 15 post position, which isn’t too bad of a draw compared to other starting spots. Since 1900, three contenders have won out of the No. 15 position, which aren’t a lot but considering the No. 17 and No. 19 posts have never produced a winner, No. 15 doesn’t look too bad.


If this were the Preakness Stakes, we’d probably like Discreetly Mine’s odds a little better than we do for the Kentucky Derby. He likes to lead or press rather than rally, is a true sprinter and his top Beyer is just a 92. That said, his finish at the Risen Star is encouraging and despite his fourth place finish at the Louisiana Derby, he finished within two lengths of the winner.
