Bodemeister is early 4-1 favorite for Ky Derby

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- Bodemeister has been made the early 4-1 favorite for the Kentucky Derby, with Union Rags the second choice in a full field of 20 horses.

Union Rags drew the No. 4 post and was listed at 9-2.

Undefeated Gemologist is the third choice at 6-1.
