Kentucky Derby Odds: Bodemeister Inches Up In Latest Contender Movement

Bodemeister, the presumptive favorite and the contender with the lowest 2012 Kentucky Derby odds for a while now, had his odds inch up on him Saturday morning, as he moved from 4-1 to 7-1 in the live odds. Union Rags, who remains at 9-2, looks all the better for it, while horses like Optimizer (from 50-1 to 36-1) and Done Talking (50-1 to 31-1) have made major moves that still leave them longshots—just longshots a lot of people appear to like. Prospective is the official longest-shot now, at 62-1.

With just hours to go before the start of the 138th renewal of the Kentucky Derby, Union Rags, Bodemeister, and Gemologist are the only contenders inside of 10-1 in a field that seems crowded with longshots. And if you want to pick one of those longshots, here's a storyline for you: tftribe, of our horse-racing blog And Down The Stretch They Come, is picking none other than Daddy Long Legs based on his run in Dubai and despite his post position.
