Is it ever too early to lay a bet on your favorite Kentucky Derby horse? John Avello of Wynn’s Las Vegas racebook and casino doesn’t think so. Mr. Avello leads the way each year as Wynn puts out the first future book for the Kentucky Derby. Their Kentucky Derby sports book was released earlier this month with 126 horses listed as wagering interests.
Fire on Ice and Alpha were both listed as favorites at 50-1 odds at opening but have since been eclipsed by Union Rags at 30-1, Drill at 35-1, Take Charge Indy at 45-1 and Creative Cause at 45-1. The book opened with 126 horses but has since grown to over 155.
