Just like all events in the sports world, the odds in the 2012 Kentucky Derby have shifted since post positions were announced. Bodemeister had been the odds-on favorite at 4/1, but thanks to bettors, Bodemeister is now listed with 8/1 odds. Union Rags, who had been sitting all week at 9/2 odds, is the new favorite, being listed with 6/1 odds to win the Run for the Roses.

Here's a look at the latest odds for the entire field, sorted by post position.

  1. Daddy Long Legs - 24/1
  2. Optimizer - 36/1
  3. Take Charge Indy - 8/1
  4. Union Rags - 6/1

Take Charge Indy has seen his stock move up a bit, as he was previously listed at 10/1. Perhaps Calvin Borel, Take Charge Indy's jockey, had something to do with that, as Borel is a three-time Kentucky Derby champion.

Odds can be expected to change throughout the day Saturday as more bets come in.
