Kentucky Derby day finally is here, and there’s still time to make some last-minute bets.
There was a change in the odds before Saturday’s race, with Always Dreaming pulling ahead of Classic Empire to become the slight favorite. The two horses are neck at +450 and +500, respectively, and McKraken and Irish War Cry come in close behind with +600 odds.
The middle of the pack was shaken up, too, with one of the more notable changes coming from Patch. The one-eyed horse’s odds actually improved from Friday to Saturday despite his disability, as he jumped from +3,300 to +2,500.
