2012 Kentucky Derby Updated Odds

The Kentucky Derby has seen several odds change and update since the opening morning. There are quite a few horses that are really big underdogs on the moneyline while there are several horses who are currently under 10/1 odds to win the race. 

Updated 2012 Kentucky Derby Odds

1. Daddy Long Legs 30-1 Has three career wins, including one this year. Ferdinand in 1986 was last horse to win from the fence.

2. Optimizer 50-1 One career win back in 2011, has shown once this season. Could be in the very back of the race.

3. Take Charge Indy 15-1 Has two career wins, including one this year. Calvin Borel is the jockey and he should never be overlooked in a Kentucky Derby.

4. Union Rags 9-2 Four career wins and one this year. Lots of speed here and will be a major player toward the end of the race. Could close fast.

5. Dullahan 8-1 Has two career wins and one in 2012. Phenomenal bloodline, being the kin of Mine That Bird, former Derby winner.

6. Bodemeister 4-1 Two wins this season and two shows as well. Probably looking to get a really nice run on the deeper closers in the race.

7. Rousing Sermon 50-1 Two wins last season. Has been handled this season by better horses. It's been 50 years since California-bred horse won Derby.

8. Creative Cause 12-1 Four career wins, three last season. Has never been beaten by more than a length in his career. Solid odds for good horse.

9. Trinniberg 50-1 Two wins this season, three in career. Won't run well at Churchill but is sitting in a nice gate overall.

10. Daddy Nose Best 15-1 Two wins in 2012, four overall. Gritty horse that can get stuff done. Could be a good bet at Win, Place, Show.

11. Alpha 15-1 Three career wins, two this season. Horse will be at gate a long time in 11th spot. Might have to pair up with Gemologist.

12. Prospective 30-1 Two wins this year. Solid horse but needs to have a good run here and probably won't win the race.

13. Went the Day Well 20-1 Two wins in 2012. Jockey rode Animal Kingdom so will be looking to follow in those steps, but has work cut out for him.

14. Hansen 10-1 Four career wins, two shows this year. Speedy horse but can he keep up with pace of the field and the track?

15. Gemologist 6-1 Five career wins, two this year. Could be horse to beat in the field. All this horse does is win races.

16. El Padrino 20-1 Two 2012 wins. Will need absolute very best to compete in this race. Quality horse but not in upper level in this race.

17. Done Talking 50-1 One win this year. Run at a lot of different venues and tracks. Huge longshot here that probably won't compete.

18. Sabercat 30-1 Zero wins 2012, three wins 2011. Lots of work to do and could need race of a lifetime to finish in the top five or so and will come late.

19. I'll Have Another 10-1 Two wins in 2012. Big runner but doesn't like the sloppier venues. Should be mid-pack before making serious run at the end.

20. Liaison 50-1 Three wins in 2011, none this year. Derby requires tip-top 100% effort which might not be happening with this horse.
