Epic Ride sits 21st in Kentucky Derby points, on the bubble, but next in line to be one of 20 horses in the Derby field. He has never failed to hit the board in five starts, most recently finishing third at the Blue Grass Stakes. Despite being a longshot in April’s futures pool, his 60-1 number 2024 Kentucky Derby odds were still ahead of other horses currently in the race. That pricing suggests Epic Ride may be a horse worth consideration underneath in exotics.

The Word On Epic Ride

Apr 27: Opened at 50-1 longshot odds on the morning line, running out of Post 21.

Apr. 22: Common Defense is ruled “unlikely” for the Kentucky Derby, pushing Epic Ride to No. 21 in the Kentucky Derby points standings. He is now first on the bubble to get into the field. With Endlessly possibly running in a turf race instead, Epic Ride could get into the field. That decision has not been made yet by Endlessly’s connections.

Apr. 7: Closed 60-1 in April’s Kentucky Derby futures pool despite being on the outside looking in for the field.

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.
