I did an edit, mainly because I can't spell. Didn't change horses, just spelling. Still got it wrong. :oops:

The betting line over/under is 2:02.65.

For information purposes only, that Derby prop and hundreds more can be found here:

http://www.5dimes.eu/livelines/livelines.aspx

Scroll down to bottom and among "Other Sports" click the "Horses" box. It will lead to all the props. Parimutuel odds are generally terrible value. For example, Classic Empire is offered at +650 (13/2) on that site.
