Place your bets! The Kentucky Derby is just four days away and while it's any horses race, there are a few favorites if you want to play the odds. "The Run for the Roses" boasts a field of 20 impressive thoroughbreds that will hit the dirt on Churchill Downs this weekend. And whether you're a pony expert or just prefer to pick your favorite based on the humorous names, the Derby has it's own picks. Nothing's a sure thing, but Uncle Mo is the odds-on favorite to win the 2011 race with 5-2 odds. Dialed In and jockey Julien Leparoux are hoping to repeat the success they had at the Grade 1 Florida Derby. Odds of Dial In winning are 4-1. And Trainer Steve Asmussen says Nehro may be the "hot horse" come Derby time, an added pressure that he's not so enthusiastic about. Nehro's odds are 8-1.
