2012 Kentucky Derby Future Odds – May Be the Bet of a Lifetime

Wynn Las Vegas has updated its 2012 Kentucky Derby future odds and, probably not surprisingly, Union Rags is the 10-to-1 favorite. He is followed by Hansen at 18-to-1 and Creative Cause at 20-to-1.

Below is a look at the top contenders, according to Wynn Las Vegas.


Union Rags (Open 60-to-1; Current: 10-to-1)–Suffered a tough head loss when 2nd to Hansen in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile. The son of Dixie Union won his previous three starts, including the Grade 1 Champagne. He is slated to make his 3-year-old debut in the Feb. 26 Fountain of Youth Stakes at Gulfstream Park, according to trainer Mike Matz.

Hansen (Open: 250-to-1; Current: 18-to-1)–Capped a perfect 3-for-3 campaign with a win in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile. The son of Tapit won the Kentucky Cup Juvenile on polytrack at Turfway Park prior to the Breeders’ Cup. Hansen is proven over the Churchill Downs strip and distance doesn’t figure to be an issue with this one. Speculation is he will make his 3-year-old debut in the one-mile Holy Bull Stakes Jan. 29 at Gulfstream Park for trainer Michael Maker.

Creative Cause (Open: 125-to-1; Current: 20-to-1)–The son of Giant’s Causeway hit the board in all five starts as a juvenile, including wins in the Grade 2 Best Pal Stakes at Grade 1 Norfolk. He was beaten just a length in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile in his final start as a 2-year-old. Trainer Michael Harrington is pointing Creative Cause to the Grade 2 San Vicente at Santa Anita on Feb. 19.

Gemologist (Open: 150-to-1; Current: 25-to-1)–Completed a perfect 3-for-3 juvenile campaign with an impressive win at churchill Downs while making his stakes debut in the Grade 2 Kentucky Jockey Club Nov. 26. Trainer Todd Pletcher has yet to commit to a next race for the son of Tiznow, but the Southwest Stakes at Oaklawn Park appears to be on the radar.

Secret Circle (Open: 150-to-1; Current: 35-1)–Unbeaten in three starts, Secret Circle followed up his Maiden win with victories in the Jack Goodman Stakes at Santa Anita and the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Sprint at Churchill Downs. He has yet to go a route of ground, but the son of Eddington’s pedigree suggests distance shouldn’t be a problem. Secret Circle is likely to prep for the Derby at trainer Bob Baffert’s Southern California base.

El Padrino (Open: 250-to-1; Current: 35-to-1)–The son of Pulpit has garnered some early buzz following his 3rd-place finish in the Grade 2 Remsen while making his stakes debut at Aqueduct Nov. 26. He has just a Maiden win to his credit, but El Padrino hails from the powerful Todd Pletcher barn and appears one to watch.
