Horses and latest odds for Churchill Downs run

Editor’s note: Follow along for live coverage of the 150th Kentucky Derby.

All eyes will be on the 150th Kentucky Derby that will take place on Saturday, May 4, at Churchill Downs in Louisville, Kentucky. The morning-line odds for all 20 participants have been released, revealing the early favorites for the first leg of horse racing’s prestigious Triple Crown.

According to the early odds, two American horses born in Kentucky are leading the pack. Sierra Leone, a promising contender at Post 2, is trained by the renowned Chad Brown and jockeyed by the talented Tyler Gafflione. The other early favorite, Fierceness at Post 17, has a winning reputation and is trained by the esteemed Todd Pletcher. Fierceness is jockeyed by the three-time Kentucky Derby winner, John Velazquez.

However, a twist in events occurred when Encino, the horse originally slated to start from post 9, was scratched from the race. This led to a reshuffling of the post positions, with horses originally set in posts 10-20 moving up one post. As a result, Epic Ride will now start from post-20, stepping in as Encino’s substitution.

Here is the complete list of participants and the morning-line odds for the 2024 Kentucky Derby.
