Mystik Dan horse

Mystik Dan is a probable starter in the 150th Kentucky Derby. Early races produced inconsistent results for this horse, but two strong showings in his latest two starts made Mystik Dan of note among 2024 Kentucky Derby odds. Most recently, he hit the board alongside Muth and Just Steel at the Arkansas Derby, two well-respected colts. Under respected trainer Kenny McPeek, Mystik Dan makes for an intriguing consideration among exotics, as the ceiling for this horse could be quite high.

Below, we’ll discuss everything you need to know before betting on Mystik Dan in the Run for the Roses.

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.
