2015 Kentucky Derby Start Time, Odds

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

The 2015 Kentucky Derby, the "Most Exciting Two Minutes in Sports," takes place later today. The 2015 Kentucky Derby Start Time is set for 6:24pm EST tonight from Churchill Downs in Louisville, Kentucky. The 2015 Kentucky Derby Odds are listed below in their entirety, with post positions for each horse with American Pharoah favored to win the race.

American Pharoah is still listed as the odds-on favorite to win the race, even when he was going to be coming from the 17th post. There has never been a Kentucky Derby winner from that post. Now the odds-on favorite will be breaking from the 16 post in this race and is still the one to beat in the 141st Kentucky Derby. The lines have moved quite a bit from the Morning Line just a few days ago, and now there are three horses that are drawing single digit odds in American Pharoah, Carpe Diem, Firing Line, Frosted and Dortmund.

Here are the scratches for today's race as of 3:00 pm: El Kabeir, Stanford, International Star and Tale of Verve.

Kentucky Derby Records

Winning Jockey: Both Eddie Arcaro and Bill Hartack have recorded five wins each. For Arcaro you need to travel back to 1938 (final win was in 1952) for his first of five wins and for Hartack back to 1957 (final win was in 1969).

Winning Trainer: Ben A Jones worked together with jockey Eddie Arcaro spanning from 1938 to 1952 and collected a total of six wins at the Kentucky Derby.

Winning Owner: Over a course of 27 years, Calumet Farm had a total of eight Derby wins (1941, 1944, 1948, 1949, 1952, 1957, 1958).

Winning Length: There is a tie between two horses from the 1940s, Whirlaway and Assault. Both captured the Kentucky Derby with a margin of eight lengths (1941 for Whirlaway and 1946 for Assault).

Winning Time: Probably one of the most famous horses in history, Secretariat, is the holder of this record. In 1973 he ran the Derby in 1:59:40 and is the only horse to ever run the 11/4 mile race in under two minutes.
