LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) – Who knew there were so many people named Jack? My Boy Jack, a Kentucky Derby colt trained by Keith Desormeaux and installed at 30-1 in Mike Battaglia’s Morning Line, was the biggest mover in early on-track betting at Churchill Downs on Friday.

The Creative Causeway colt was bet down to co-second choice on Friday, standing at 5-1 after a day’s worth of wagering at Churchill Downs.

He was the only one of the six 30-1 shots who saw his odds improve.

Morning-line favorite Justify remains the favorite at 7-2 odds after opening at 3-1. Mendelssohn remains at 5-1, the co-second choice along with My Boy Jack.

Audible, 8-1 in the morning line, will begin the day at 6-1 odds, followed by 2-year old Good Magic, bet down to 8-1 from the morning line of 12-1, and Bolt d’Oro at 8-1. Unbeaten Magnum Moon, third-choice in the morning line, fell from 6-1 to 13-1.

Friday wagering from all sources was reported at $139.2 million, a fraction of what will be wagered on the race overall. Still, it’s interesting to see the public’s first inclinations.
