2017 KentuckyDerby Betting Odds

The biggest horse race of the year is just a couple of months away and we figured now was as good as time as any to go over updated 2017 KentuckyDerby betting odds and picks for the big race. One of the potential Kentucky Derby betting favorites is Gunnevera.

One of the more exciting horses that will compete in the 2017 Kentucky Derby is Gunnevera. This thoroughbred has an immense amount of racing experience compared to the rest of the field. Many horse bettors believe that Gunnevera is continually getting better with each race, while other horses in the Kentucky Derby field may have already peaked.

When early odds were released for Kentucky Derby 143, Gunnevera was sitting at 50/1. Those odds have decreased in the latest futures pool, putting Gunnevera at 20/1. With 3 wins in the last 7 starts for Gunnevera, this horse could find a way to put its nose over the finish line first at this year’s upcoming Kentucky Derby.

The Holy Bull Stakes could provide a glimpse of what to expect at Kentucky Derby 143. In this specific race, Gunnevera finished in 2nd place behind Irish War Cry. Another likely Kentucky Derby runner Classic Empire finished the race in third. 

Gunnevera’s next race will likely be at the Fountain of Youth Stakes which takes place at Gulfstream Park on March 4th. This race will serve as a tune up for Gunnevera as other Kentucky Derby runners such as Irish War Cry and Practical Joke will be in the field.

Could Gunnevera win Kentucky Derby 143? Trainer Antonio Sano has nothing but good things to say about his horse so it might worth doing a Win/Place/Show bet on Gunnevera should the parimutuel odds stay in the 20/1 range.
