The facilities at Churchill Downs in Louisville, Kentucky, are prepped for the first leg of the 2024 Triple Crown. The Kentucky Derby is set to begin on May 4th, and two horses are clear-cut favorites in opening betting lines.

The two top odds-getters at Kentucky Derby betting sites are Sierra Leone and Fierceness, both tied with a +300 moneyline.

  • Fierceness +300

The field dips into quadruple-digit odds once we reach the third-ranked contender at horse race betting sites, as Forever Young is coming in at +1000 and paying at a 10-to-1 ratio.

It is too early for Kentucky Derby prop bets to take effect, as anything can happen in the 16 days between now and the start of the race. However, there is an early horse racing prop bet on whether 2024 will produce a Triple Crown winner.

Will There Be A Triple Crown Winner In 2024?

  • Yes +1200
  • No -2500
  • @ BetUS

Right now, the odds suggest very little chance of a 3-year-old winning all three legs of the Triple Crown this year. 12-to-1 payouts are being offered on the prospect, and it’ll cost you $25 just to earn a buck by wagering on “no.”

2018 was the last time there was a Triple Crown winner when Justify took all three legs. Before that, it was American Pharoah in 2015, ending a drought that had been ongoing since 1978. There have only been 13 Triple Crown winners in the history of competitive horse racing.

The next stop on the 2024 Triple Crown tour is the Preakness Stakes, which will take place two weeks after the Derby in Baltimore, Maryland’s Pimlico Race Course. Odds have yet to debut for Preakness or Belmont, but we expect them to debut shortly after the conclusion of the Derby, if not sooner.

2024 Triple Crown Schedule

  • The Kentucky Derby: May 4, 2024
  • Preakness Stakes: May 18, 2024
  • Belmont Stakes: June 8, 2024

Sierra Leone is 3-1 in four starts and has earned $918,000 thus far in his career. Fierceness is 3-0-1 on the road to the Derby and has pocketed $1,703,850 during those four races.
