"Hansen" currently sits at 10-1 odds to win the Kentucky Derby. On Saturday evening the 138th running of the Kentucky Derby has a start time and official post time is 6:24pm ET from Churchill Downs in Louisville, Kentucky. The event, which always has 20 horses ready to go at the start, has several contenders in this year's event. "Hansen" will begin the race from the the 14th position. He will be ridden by jockey Ramon A. Dominguez. "Hansen" is considered to be one of the odds-on favorites to take home the Derby crown.
"Hansen" has a lifetime career of 4 wins, 2 places and has won once and showed twice this season. The horse has a combined winnings of over $1,600,000 in just two years on the major circuit. Dominguez and Hansen could do some damage here at 9-1 odds. Hansen is a very fast horse and had a good showing in the Blue Grass. The biggest question with this horse is whether or not he can hang with the blitzing pace and still be there at the end. Very fast horse, but will the track by ideal for him? No. But speed and control are two things that are very important in the Derby and Hansen provides both for those looking at a horse with decent odds.
