Louisiana Derby Odds
The morning-line odds for the Louisiana Derby, which has found a more or less permanent home on the last Saturday in March, five weeks before the Kentucky Derby, are typically released at the conclusion of the post-position draw, which is held on the Wednesday before the race. All other races on the card are drawn the same day.
The Louisiana Derby field is drawn the way most horse races are: by pulling pills out of a bottle and randomly assigning post positions. In 2015, the ceremonial draw was conducted in the Fair Grounds paddock by racing department officials. The draw is open to horsemen and print and social media, and the broadcasting of it on television or over streaming video on the internet has become common.
Louisiana Derby odds are widely available online prior to the start of betting on Saturday. Among the best places to find that information are at Brisnet.com and TwinSpires.com.
The size of the Louisiana Derby field can vary, but the 1 1/8-mile race has proven popular despite a plethora of other lucrative preps in the weeks before and after the race. The average field size in the last 10 editions has been more than 10.
