On Saturday, September 5, we’ll finally get to see the 146th Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs, Louisville.

After the controversy of last season and the delay this year, bettors are naturally waiting to see how the middle leg of the Triple Crown finally plays out.

Hundreds of different bets are available are on the race. Our own Kentucky Derby picks involve the horses, but betting on the winning jockey is also increasing in popularity as horseplayers look to find different wagering angles.


Current Kentucky Derby Jockey Odds

Naturally, we don’t know yet who will line up at Churchill Downs on September 5 and what their odds to win will be—let alone which jockey will ride which horse. Last-minute changes have happened before.

If you believe you know which horse is the best in the line-up is before the derby, and who the trainer will entrust to ride it, you may find a worthy wager in the jockey market.

Right now, odds are based not so much on how good each jockey is perceived to be, but on the likelihood of them being aboard a major Kentucky Derby contender.

Current odds to win the 2020 Kentucky Derby are:

Betting on Trainers in the Kentucky Derby

Wagering on a horse (or two) to win the 146th Kentucky Derby is one way to go; betting on the winning jockey is another, but there is yet a further market to concentrate your efforts on—the winning trainer.

Trainers with great barns will have more than one card to play in the Derby, so this market is another option for wagers, with trainers such as Bob Baffert, Bill Mott, Jason Servis, Todd Pletcher, and Shug McGaughey all in the running to land the big one.

You can visit our dedicated Kentucky Derby Trainers Betting section to see who is currently favored to take down the Run for the Roses.
