Jockey Kent Desormeaux and "Dullahan" are going to be a major player in the 138th running of the Kentucky Derby on Saturday and one of the best horses in the field. The Kentucky Derby has a start time and official post time of 6:24pm ET at Churchill Downs in Louisville, Kentucky. There are several horses that have pretty decent odds to win this race. "Dullahan" currently sits at 6.5-1 odds to win the race and opens from the 5th position.
"Dullahan" has a lifetime career of 2 wins, 2 shows and has won twice already this season. The horse has garnered more than $850,000 in winnings during his two years on the major circuit and has the blood line to contend. "Dullahan" is the kin to former Kentucky Derby winner "Mine That Bird." Desormeaux is going for his fourth Kentucky Derby win as a jockey. "Dullahan" has never won on dirt but we've seen several great horses in the past make the change and do it well.
The current Kentucky Derby post positions and current odds are: 1. Daddy Long Legs 30-1, 2. Optimizer 50-1, 3. Take Charge Indy 15-1, 4. Union Rags 9-2, 5. Dullahan 8-1, 6. Bodemeister 4-1, 7. Rousing Sermon 50-1, 8. Creative Cause 12-1, 9. Trinniberg 50-1, 10. Daddy Nose Best 15-1, 11. Alpha 15-1, 12. Prospective 30-1, 13. Went The Day Well 20-1, 14. Hansen 10-1, 15. Gemologist 6-1, 16. El Padrino 20-1, 17. Done Talking 50-1, 18. Sabercat 30-1, 19. I'll Have Another 10-1 and 20. Liaison 50- 1. If any of the above horses are scratched by 9am ET on Friday, My Adonis will take their place and is installed as a 50-1 long-shot
