Lookin at Lucky may be the favorite in the 136th running of the Kentucky Derby on Saturday but he does not have a favorable post position as he will start from the rail. With Eskendereya out of the Kentucky Derby Odds, the odds are a lot more wide open than they would have been. Lookin at Lucky was made the 3-1 morning line favorite with Sidney’s Candy the 5-1 second choice. Sidney’s Candy will start from the opposite end from Lookin at Lucky as Sidney’s Candy starts from post position 20.
