Mo Donegal beat Zandon by a nose in their bumpy, head-to-head matchup in Saturday’s Grade 2 Remsen Stakes at Aqueduct. But in Las Vegas, Zandon is shorter priced than Mo Donegal in the Kentucky Derby futures market. 

Zandon shortened to 30-1 at Caesars Sportsbook at William Hill Nevada and 25-1 at Circa Sports to win the 2022 Derby. He had been 50-1 at both books.

Mo Donegal moved to 50-1 at Caesars at William Hill after he had been 75-1. He was cut to 35-1 at Circa, where he had been 100-1.

How was this explained? As usual, it came down to one word. Exposure.

RELATED: See the 2022 Kentucky Derby contenders.

“We took decent action prior to (Saturday’s) race,” Circa’s Paul Zilm said Sunday night. “I took the action on Zandon at 50-1. Nobody has bet Mo Donegal yet.”

Paul Bach of Caesars at William Hill also said “liability” was a factor in shortening Zandon. So, too, was the merit of the Upstart colt’s performance against Mo Donegal.

“They ran each other to a nose decision,” Bach said. “It was Zandon’s first time going two turns, so I give him more room for improvement.”

Circa also “took a good bet on Sir London (on Sunday) morning,” Zilm said, referring to the Malibu Moon colt’s move from 125-1 to 75-1. After his 10-length, maiden-breaking victory Saturday at Los Alamitos, Sir London held firm at 100-1 at Caesars at William Hill.

Breeders’ Cup Juvenile winner Corniche is still the consensus favorite. While he held steady at 6-1 at Caesars at William Hill, the Bob Baffert-trained colt by Quality Road went from 9-1 to 10-1 at Circa.

The two Nevada bookmakers have a total of 242 horses listed in their Derby futures.
