When the future odds for the 2009 Kentucky Derby were established in early April, Quality Road was a 5/1 favorite. But after suffering a foot injury between now and then, Quality Road has been scratched from the 135th running of the Kentucky Derby and now obviously, we have a new favorite.

Oddsmakers from online sports book Sportsbook.com have made I Want Revenge a 3/1 favorite to win this year’s Kentucky Derby. I Want Revenge has been outstanding in his last two races, winning at the Wood Memorial on April 4 and the Gotham on March 7.

I Want Revenge is expected to get a challenge from Dunkirk, who has been given 6/1 odds to win this year’s Kentucky Derby. Dunkirk has run three times this year and has two first place showings at the Maiden Special Weight and at the Allowance at Gulfstream Park, respectively. He also placed second at the Florida Derby in his most recent race.

Pioneerof the Nile has 6.5/1 odds to win the 2009 Kentucky Derby, while Freisan Fire (7/1) and Chocolate Candy (13/1) round out the rest of the top 5. Mine That Bird (101/1) and Join in the Dance (81/1) are your long shots.

The Kentucky Derby is a 10-furlong race held every year at Churchill Downs in Louisville, Kentucky. Big Brown won the 2008 Kentucky Derby, giving bettors $6.80 on a win, $5.00 for a place and $4.80 on a show. Eight Belles and Denis of Cork finished second and third, respectively.
