As it always goes, the closer we get to the Kentucky Derby the more people are placing bets on the contenders, which leads to fluctuation in the odds daily.

 So. let's take a look at how the odds to win the 2009 Kentucky Derby stand at the moment. Again, the odds-on favorite Derby contender remains I Want Revenge, who is now listed with the 3/1 odds to win the famous horse race on Saturday. His previous odds were slightly longer at 5/2, but with Quality Road out of the picture, most bettors switched bets in favor of "I Want Revenge". But there were those who continue looking for the best deal in odds and are shying from the favorite Kentucky Derby contender in favor of the better payouts. Both Dunkirk and Pioneer of the Nile have moved up on the betting sheets, the two colts sharing 4/1 odds to win the Run for the Roses in a few days. The new Kentucky Derby odds on these two contenders show that while Dunkirk did not improve by much (his previous odds were 9/2), Pioneer of the Nile is really picking up steam as he enters the Derby. Yesterday's odds on Pioneer of the Nile to win the 135th Derby were at 6/1. Friesan Fire has also attracted the attention of the bettors - his odds climbed down from 13/2 to 5/1 at Bodog Sports at the moment.
