The gray colt White Abarrio is one of about a dozen legitimate contenders in this year’s Kentucky Derby. He’s not my top choice or second or third, for that matter, but the bettors will amble over to the parimutuel windows on Saturday to plunk down millions of dollars on him. 

Figure he goes off at odds of 10-1 or so.
