LOUISVILLE — Dialed In was made a 4-1 morning line favorite Wednesday for the 137th running of the Kentucky Derby after he drew the No. 8 stall at the race's post position draw.

The Florida Derby winner, who is trained by two-time Kentucky Derby winner Nick Zito, has won three times in four career starts. Once he drew a favorable post, as expected, Churchill Downs handicapper Mike Battaglia tabbed him as the horse to beat Saturday.

Uncle Mo, even though his status remains up in the air for Saturday's race, has the second best odds at 9-2 after drawing the 18th post position. He's trained by Todd Pletcher, who won the Derby last year with Super Saver. 

Nehro, despite getting the 19th post, is the third choice at 6-1. 

Jockey Calvin Borel, who has won three of the last four Kentucky Derbys, is riding Twice the Appeal (20-1), which drew the third post position.
