Why Kentucky Derby horses are worth much more off the track
Tuesday May 2nd, 2017

If the early odds are any indication, the 2017 Kentucky Derby promises to be a good one.

Oddsmakers haven’t settled on a single favorite for the 143rd running of the Derby, which will be held Saturday in the early evening.

Last year’s winner, Nyquist, took off as a 2–1 favorite. Nyquist went on to finish third in the Preakness Stakes and was pulled out of the Belmont because of an illness.

Nyquist won the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile as a two-year-old in 2015 and the winner of last year’s Juvenile—Classic Empire—is among the favorites for this years race.

A full list of odds is below.
