2020 Kentucky Derby Odds



mediaBeginning in September of each year, the Road to the Kentucky Derby starts anew. Over the course of dozens of races around the world, hundreds of thoroughbreds will compete for a chance to be part of the next year's annual 'Run for the Roses.'

More so than perhaps any race in the world, there is nearly year-round interest in Kentucky Derby odds and potential contenders. Over the course of the Winter and Early Spring, there are four 'Future Wager Pools' offering bettors a limited time opportunity to lock in favorable odds on early favorites. In 2020, due to the postponement of the Kentucky Derby until September, there are 3 additional Future Wager Pools available.

The release of the morning line Kentucky Derby odds the Wednesday before the race is a highly anticipated event. The release coincides with the Post Position Draw, an hour-long ceremony to determines starting positions.

In the tables below, find the schedule for, and final odds (if available), from all four Kentucky Derby future wager pools, and well as early (unofficial) odds for the 2020 Kentucky Derby and odds for Kentucky Derby events run in recent years.

2020 Kentucky Derby - Future Wager Pool 4 Odds

April 3 to April 5, 2020 (pool closed)

Pool 4 of the 2020 Kentucky Derby Future Wager closed with a relatively low volume of $144,348.82 in the win pool, and "All Other Three-Year-Olds" as the favored choice at 3-1. With the Kentucky Derby postponed until early September and the world preoccupied with the COVID-19 pandemic, the lower-than-usual action was not unexpected. Charlatan and Tiz the Law both closed at 5-1 odds as the presumptive favorites, Maxfield (9-1), Nadal (9-1), and Authentic (10-1) also attracting interest as well.
