2008 Kentucky Derby and Oaks Future Wager
Pool One

Date: 03/09/08

Pool Two of the Kentucky Derby Future Wager is now closed. As expected, Pyro wound up the favorite at only 4-1, after winning the Louisiana Derby on Saturday. Undefeated champion War Pass, off his impressive win in an allowance race, closed as the pool's second choice at 9-2 while the mutuel field of all other 3-year-olds was next at 6-1. The total pool was $325,306, the smallest Pool 2 since $306,259 was bet in 2000. In the Kentucky Oaks pool, Country Star, who has yet to start this year, closed as the 5-1 favorite over 6-1 Proud Spell, winner of the Fair Grounds Oaks. Pure Clan closed as the 7-1 third choice. $62,503 was wagered, the largest Pool 2 in Oaks Future history.

Both are two-dollar minimum wagers to win only with no refunds if your horse doesn't start in the race. Pool 3, the final pool for this year, 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. Final odds for Pool One, held in February, are available here.

Free past performances for Pool Two are available here from BRIS. Free past performances will also be available for the Derby Future and the Oaks Future from the Kentucky Derby website soon. DRF will also have free past performances for both available soon here: Derby Future, Oaks Future
