(The Spread) – While other Kentucky Derby 137 contenders’ odds continue to change daily, Soldat’s have barely budged.

When oddsmakers from online sports book Bodog.com released updated Kentucky Derby odds on Monday of this week, Soldat was listed at +1800. Those odds dropped on Wednesday when the post positions were announced and they haven’t moved since; Soldat sits at +1400.

Soldat is a rather tough contender to figure out. He had a rough go of things at the Florida Derby (Grade 1) while finishing fifth behind Kentucky Derby favorite Dialed In. And while  he did win the Fountain of Youth (grade 2) on February 26 and an Allowance on January 21, if he couldn’t hang with Dialed In at the Florida Derby than what makes any bettor think he can win today at Churchill Downs?

The other problem Soldat is facing is that no horse has ever come out of the No. 17 gate and won the Kentucky Derby. It’s one of two post positions (the No. 19 being the other one) that have never produced a winner. So if Soldat is going to emerge victorious today, he’ll have to overcome history, which isn’t on his side.
