Lookin at Lucky gets the rail for Kentucky Derby
There was no luck for Lookin at Lucky, the favorite for Saturday's Kentucky Derby. The 3-year-old drew the rail in the post draw Wednesday for the 20-horse field. The No. 1 spot isn't considered the best starting point for a horse that doesn't have all-out speed in a big field.
Drawing the No. 20 outside post is the second choice, Sidney's Candy, who has lots of speed and shouldn't be bothered by being on the far outside to start the 1 1/4-mile race.
Lookin at Lucky has been installed as the 3-1 favorite. Sidney's Candy is listed at 5-1.
