Kentucky Derby 2024: Dornoch Horse Racing Profile

Written By Brett Gibbons | Last Updated

Dornoch is a horse to keep on eye on with 2024 Kentucky Derby odds. Though not an undefeated champion heading into May, the Danny Gargan-trained colt closed at 12-1 in April’s futures pool and has posted decent Beyer Speed Figures. Dornoch’s latest run saw him miss the board for the first time in a loaded Grade I field at the Blue Grass Stakes. However, with Brisnet Speed Figures consistently in the mid-to-upper 90s, he is an interesting consideration for Kentucky Derby exotics.

Below, we’ll look at everything you need to know to bet Dornoch in the upcoming Kentucky Derby.

The Word On Dornoch

Apr. 7: Closed a respectable 12-1 in the Kentucky Derby futures pool 6, the fifth-shortest mark on the board. A fourth-place finish likely doesn’t diminish the outlook for Dornoch, who gave a valiant effort and has consistently posted respectable BSF numbers.

Apr. 27: Opened at 20-1 on the morning line, running out of Post 1. Given Dornoch is a frontrunning horse, he has a better chance not to get pinned to the rail, should he choose to set the pace.

Kentucky Derby Odds 2024

Unlike fixed odds betting, odds for the Kentucky Derby will continue to move until post time, even if you place your bet today. Most odds movement occurs day-of and minutes prior to post.

For example, if you were to bet on Dornoch the week of the race at 20-1 odds but when the race started he was 18-1, your wager slip/betting ticket would be at 18-1 odds.
