Undefeated Nyquist favored to win 2016 Kentucky Derby
The Triple Crown season gets under way today with Kentucky Derby 142. Undefeated Nyquist is the favorite in the full 20-horse field.
The Doug O'Neill trained horse will start from the 13th gate with Mario Gutierrez aboard.
The last unbeaten horse to win the first leg of the Triple Crown was Big Brown in 2008.
Exaggerator with Kent Desormeaux in the irons has the second-best odds.
Trainer Bob Baffert is trying to follow up his Triple Crown winning year with American Pharoah, with Mor Spirit in the field.
Victor Espinoza, who rode American Pharoah last year, is in today's field riding Whitmore.
Weather-wise the conditions are letter perfect but there is a chance of rain around race-time.
