LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - While Kentucky Derby favorite Nyquist prepares for his final workout before the May 7 Run for the Roses, odds on the son of Uncle Mo have dropped in Las Vegas.

Nyquist, who will turn in his final work Friday afternoon at Keeneland Race Course in Lexington, started the week at 4-1 but is now listed at 7-2 by several sports books in Las Vegas.

The Wynn Las Vegas, Sportsbook.ag and AllHorseRacing all have the Doug O’Neill-trained Nyquist as the 4-1 favorite for the 142nd running of the Derby.

Longtime Churchill Downs oddsmaker Mike Battaglia has said he would make the undefeated Nyquist a 3-1 favorite in the morning-line odds.
