Kentucky Derby Future Wager Pool 2 Wagering Spikes

2/11/2018

All Others at 5-2

With the Kentucky Derby 12 weeks away, the pari-mutuel field of “All Other 3-Year-Olds” closed as the 5-2 favorite in Pool 2 of the Kentucky Derby Future Wager (KDFW), and wagering was up 58 percent year over year.

The “All Others 3-Year-Olds” betting option has been the favorite in the first pool of the new year since the Kentucky Derby Future Wager was first introduced in 1999. Champion 2-Year-Old Male and Sentient Jet Breeders’ Cup Juvenile winner Good Magic and multiple Grade I winner Bolt d’Oro were the co-second betting choices at odds of 8-1.

Other horses that attracted the most interest from bettors in the KDFW Pool 2 were the Bob Baffert-trained Los Alamitos Futurity and Sham winner McKinzie (9-1) and the Todd Pletcher-trained Holy Bull winner Audible (9-1).

Horses in order of favoritism:
#24 "All Others” (5-2, $7)

Total handle for the Feb. 9-11 KDFW pool – the second of four wagering pools in advance of the Kentucky Derby – was $521,650 ($363,389 in the Win pool and $158,262 in Exactas), a 58 percent increase over last year’s $330,043 ($227,881 in the Win pool and $102,162 in Exactas).

Horses can qualify to the Kentucky Derby by competing in a series of races that award points to the Top 4 finishers on the Road to the Kentucky Derby Presented by Woodford Reserve. Four points-bearing races are scheduled this week, led by Saturday’s Risen Star at Fair Grounds (Top 4 points: 50-20-10-5) that commences the 16-race Championship Series. Also, the Japan Road to the Kentucky, which can offer a potential berth to one runner, concludes Sunday with the Hyacinth at Tokyo Racecourse. 

Dates for the remaining Kentucky Derby and Kentucky Oaks future pools are March 9-11 (KDFW Pool 3 and Kentucky Oaks Future Wager) and April 6-8 (KDFW Pool 4).
