Tracking the Odds on I’ll Have Another, Future Book KY Derby Longshot Winner

Here on AGameofSkill.com we partner with Wynn Las Vegas to provide the future book odds for premier horse racing events such as the Kentucky Derby, Triple Crown and the Breeders’ Cup World Thoroughbred Championships. I know of several sharp horseplayers who made a nice score by tabbing I’ll Have Another as the potential winner of Kentucky Derby 138 some months ago by placing future book wagers down at triple-digit odds.

Since we keep an archive of the Wynn Las Vegas Future Book odds, I figured it would be interesting to track the drop in price on this horse from earlier this year up until mid-April and then, of course, race day itself.
