Live Kentucky Derby Odds from US Racing

LOUISVILLE, Ky.--()--US Racing (, an international online horse racing service, today announced the updated odds of the 144th Kentucky Derby to be held at Churchill Downs on Saturday, May 5th.

Justify is strongly backed and is the betting favourite with Mike Smith,” said Tim Maxwell, operations director of US Racing. “But watch for Mendelssohn—his UAE derby win was magnificent,” he added.

Derek Simon, senior editor and handicapper of US Racing feels strongly about Audible. “[His] pace figures look a lot like the numbers recorded by Always Dreaming prior to last year’s [Kentucky Derby] and, since 2006, the Florida Derby has produced five Kentucky Derby winners from just 33 starters,” he said.

The world will be watching the “Greatest 2 Minutes of Sports” on NBC and getting all the action with US Racing.
