Kentucky Derby 2012: Current Betting Odds from Favorites to Longshots

Mike Battaglia, who has been making odds for the Kentucky Derby, has called this year perhaps his toughest yet in terms of setting them. After the post positions were drawn on Wednesday, Battaglia installed Bodemeister—named for trainer Bob Baffert's son—as his 4-1 morning-line favorite. 

The other early favorites are Union Rags, Dullahan and Gemologist, while the remaining 16 horses all have odds of 10-1 or higher. 

It's interesting to look back at last year's Breeders Cup Juvenile, as ten of the 20 Derby horses ran in the race that Hansen won. The top-six finishers in that race will be at Churchill Downs on Saturday.
