Kentucky Derby 2012 Odds: Union Rags, Bodemeister Still The Favorites

After a morning's worth of money flooding in to bet on the 2012 Kentucky Derby, there's been little change in the core favorites. Union Rags is still a strong 9-2, with Bodemeister holding at 7-1 after moving down from 8-1 early in the day (the horse started the morning at 4-1), while Gemologist has slid from 6-1 to 8-1.

The influx of betting has even out the field somewhat -- a few of the larger longshots have dropped throughout the day, including Rousing Sermon (50-1 to 35-1), Done Talking (50-1 to 32-1) and Optimizer (50-1 to 35-1).
