Print

We now know from which post each of the Kentucky Derby 140 contenders will start from and the odds installed upon each.  

As expected, Santa Anita Derby (G1) winner California Chrome has been installed as the favorite at odds of 5-2. He’ll break from post 5 under jockey Victor Espinoza for trainer Art Sherman.

This year's edition of the Kentucky Derby includes several local trainers to note: 

Louisville-based trainer Dale Romans drew post 14 for his Transylvania (G3) winner and Blue Grass Stakes (G1) runner-up Medal Count. Jockey Robby Albarado has the mount.

Ride On Curlin, trained by Bill Gowan, a resident of nearby Shepherdsville, will break from post 19 under jockey Calvin Borel.

Louisville-based trainer Mike Maker received post position 1 for Vicar's in Trouble at odds of 30-1, post 8 for General A Rod at odds of 15-1 and post 2 for Harry's Holiday at odds of 50-1. 

Dallas Stewart, another Louisville trainer, drew post 17 for Commanding Curve at odds of 50-1.
