Pool Three of the Kentucky Derby Future Wager is now closed. The mutuel field of all other 3-year-olds closed as the favorite at 4-1 over 2-year-old Champion American Pharoah at 8-1. The undefeated colt Dortmund is third choice at 9-1 with Carpe Diem next at 10-1. A total of $422,331 was wagered with $300,403 in the win pool and $121,927 in the exacta pool. Wagering was suspended on The Great War after trainer Wesley Ward notified Churchill Downs officials that his colt was no longer being considered for the Kentucky Derby. The colt finished last of 10 horses on Saturday in the $116,450 John Battaglia Memorial at Turfway Park.
In the only Kentucky Oaks Future Wager pool for 2015, which ran concurrent with Derby pool 3 but closed 30 minutes later, the field was a strong favorite at 7-2 with Rachel Alexandra Stakes (G3) winner I'm a Chatterbox second choice at 6-1. Tied for third choice were Condo Commando and Take Charge Brandi both at 7-1. A total of $115,615 was wagered in the Oaks Future with $79,445 in the win pool and $36.169 in the exacta pool.
