Friday May 1st, 2015

American Pharoah remains the betting favorite to win the 2015 Kentucky Derby with 3-1 odds, according to the race's official odds.

Before post positions were announced, American Pharoah had 9–4 odds, but the horse drew the No. 18 post position on Wednesday and moved to 5–2 odds. After International Star became the latest horse to scratch from the race, American Pharoah moved up to 3-1.

Dortmund, which is in Gate 8 and has the second-best odds to win the race, saw its odds move from 5–1 on Friday up to 4-1 on Saturday morning.
