Kentucky Derby Day - Street Sense and Curlin with best odds

Today is the day - the 2007 Kentucky Derby starts tonight and we take a last look at betting odds for the contenders of the 133rd race.

Kentucky Derby DaySteve Assmusen's Curlin continues to hold the best odds to win the Kentucky Derby with $7 for every $2. The winner of the Arkansas Derby in April is training very well on the Churchill Downs, and the online bookmaker Bodog, just as many others, still believe that Curling will be the one.

Street Sense, which many believe is jinxed after winning the Breeders' Cup Juvenile last year, still holds the second best odds at 4/1. No horse has won the Kentucky Derby after winning the Juvenile Cup, but there is no real reason or explanation for this, therefore the bookmakers continue to hold Street Sense as one of the favorites to win the Derby, and maybe make history.

Nobiz Like Shobiz and Circular Quay (one of the five horses of Todd Pletcher) are holding steady their 8/1 betting odds. Any Given Saturday is most often chosen as the long shot for the Kentucky Derby by many experts, the odds are 12/1.

Currently the weather over Louisville Kentucky is cloudy with showers moving in. The weather prognosis is for showers and thunderstorms throughout the day, which would make for a damp track at the Kentucky Derby, however, it seems that the drainage system of Churchill Downs is of the highest quality, and it would not affect the horses all that much. We saw yesterday the horses achieving pretty good times at the Kentucky Oaks, when the track was also damp, thus many experts rule out the weather being a factor for the 133rd Kentucky Derby.
