Trainer Bob Baffert’s Game Winner is the new morning-line favorite for the 2019 Kentucky Derby after Omaha Beach’s Wednesday scratch.
Game Winner is now at odds of 9/2, according to oddsmaker Mike Battaglia, after opening at 5-1 prior to Omaha Beach’s scratch.
Additional Baffert-trained horses Improbable and Roadster each are now listed at 5-1 odds (after opening at 6-1).
That gives Baffert the first, second and third betting choices in the 2019 Kentucky Derby.
Maximum Security and Tacitus are now 8-1 (after opening at 10-1).
Code of Honor and Win Win Win are now 12-1 (from 15-1).
By My Standards, War of Will and Vekoma each moved to 15-1 (from 20-1).
