The 2011 Kentucky Derby is scheduled for 6:24 pm ET on May 7 in Louisville, Kentucky's Churchill Downs, as always. SB Nation's horce racing community, And Down The Stretch They Come, will have killer coverage all throughout the week, but we're certainly keeping our eye on one of the Southeast's premier sporting events.
Here is Bodog.com's 2011 Kentucky Derby odds list, on which Dialed In appears as the 3/1 favorite over 4/1 Uncle Mo, a stirring turn of events after Uncle Mo opened the week as the top contender. Toby's Corner, once a top-five pick, was scratched due to a leg injury. That odds list is also going to function as the most up-to-date list of contenders -- Tuesday, Toby's Corner was removed from Bodog.com's records almost immediately.
