It’s become California Chrome versus the field as we approach the 140th running of the Kentucky Derby, as the betting price on the Santa Anita Derby (G1) winner has dropped to 7-4 in the latest betting odds released by Bovada.
The money keeps coming on California Chrome, who is now the solid early betting favorite for the 140th running of the Kentucky Derby, his current price now down to 2-1 at Bovada.
The Art Sherman trained colt was listed at 7-1 on April 3, down to 3-1 on April 10, and here we are a week later and he is now down another point to 2-1.
The final two major Kentucky Derby prep races are on tap on Saturday, and for horseplayers that backed Bayern and Bobby’s Kitten in Derby future wagering, the heat is on.
Bayern is the 2-1 second choice in the $1 million Arkansas Derby (G1) at Oaklawn Park on Saturday and is currently listed at 16-1 at Bovada in Kentucky Derby future wagering, but needs to earn Derby points to get into the field for the Run for the Roses.
