2014 Kentucky Derby Start Time, Odds

Kentucky Derby 2012 Draw: Post Positions, Field and Race Preview

The 2014 Kentucky Derby, the "Most Exciting Two Minutes in Sports," takes place later today. The 2014 Kentucky Derbt Start Time is set for 6:24pm EST tonight from Churchill Downs in Louisville, Kentucky. The 2014 Kentucky Derby Odds are listed below in their entirety, with post positions for each horse with California Chrome favored to win the race.

Hoppertunity became the first horse to have to be scratched from the race. Churchill Downs is hoping that is the only horse that has to miss the 140th running of this race. California Chrome has been tabbed as the odds-one favorite to win the race, currently drawing 5/2 odds on Friday. California Chrome is the first favorite this strong in six seasons, when Big Brown was close to a 2-to-1 favorite.

The only other horse currently drawing single-digit odds is Wicked Strong in the 20th post at 8/1. Many horses have fallen with odds and are now garnering more value.

"The Most Exciting Two Minutes in Sports" is held annually at Churchill Downs on the first Saturday in May for three-year-old thoroughbred horses. The Derby is the first leg of the Triple Crown and is almost always the most attended horse race in North America. Two years ago, I'll Have Another became the first horse ever to win the Kentucky Derby while opening on the 19th post. Now the only post never to have a winner is No. 17. Both posts No. 1 and No. 5 have the most Kentucky Derby winners of all time with 12 while No. 4 has seen 11 winners. Orb, the winner of last year's race, came from the No. 16 post.
