Kentucky Derby 2011 Odds: Drop Outs, Underdogs, Winner Predictions
The 2011 Kentucky Derby has been like a M.A.S.H unit for the horses. Yesterday another favorite, Unlce Mo, dropped out of the field due to a mysterious stomach ailment. Uncle Mo will join The Factor and Toby’s Corner on the sidelines in a year that has seen a lot of favorites pulling out of the field. Who will win at Churchill Downs today? (May 7, 2011)
