2008 Kentucky Derby and Oaks Future Wager
Pool One

Date: 02/05/08

Pool One of the Kentucky Derby Future Wager is now closed. As expected the field wound up the favorite at only 3-1. Pyro, off his impressive win in the Risen Star, closed as the pool's second choice at 5-1 while Breeders' Cup Juvenile winner War Pass was next at 6-1. The total pool was $439,379, and nearly half of that was wagered in the final 6 hours of betting. The Kentucky Oaks had only $65,219 wagered on it and Indian Blessing, winner of the Silverbulletday Stakes on Saturday, was the favorite at 4-1. Second choice was Country Star at 9-2 and the field of all other 3-year-old fillies was third choice at 5-1.

Both are two-dollar minimum wagers to win only with no refunds if your horse doesn't start in the race. Pool 2 is scheduled for March 6-9 and the third and final pool is set for April 3-6. The 134th running of the Kentucky Derby is scheduled for Saturday, May 3 with the Kentucky Oaks the day before on May 2. Full rules and info for the wagers are available here.

Free past performances for Pool One are available here from BRIS. There are also free past performances available for the Derby Future and the Oaks Future from the Kentucky Derby website. DRF also has free past performances for both available here: Derby Future, Oaks Future
