Pool One of the 2021 Kentucky Derby Future Wager is now closed. As expected the field of all other 3-year-old colts and geldings wound up the favorite at only 6-5 odds. Life Is Good was the lowest odds individual horse at 5-1 followed by Essential Quality at 12-1. The total amount wagered during Pool One was $249,331 which was a 32% decrease over last year's November pool. $191,984 was bet into the win pool and $57,347 was bet into the exacta pool. You can view the exacta will-pays here. There was also the Sire Future Wager pool this year where you can wager on the sire of the next Derby winner. In this pool, Into Mischief was the favorite at 4-1 and the field of all other sires was second choice at 5-1, with Tapit next at 6-1. Just $47,567 was bet in this pool between the win wagers and exactas, almost the same as last year.
The Kentucky Derby Future Wager is a two-dollar minimum bet to win only with no refunds if your horse doesn't start in the race with both win and exacta wagering available. Pool 2 is scheduled for January 22-24, Pool 3 is scheduled for February 12-14. Pool 4 is set for March 5-7 and will also include the single Kentucky Oaks Future Wager pool. The fifth and final pool is set for March 26-28. The 147th running of the Kentucky Derby is currently scheduled for Saturday, May 1. At time of writing, Churchill officials expect to run the Derby on its scheduled, traditional date, with reserved seating at 40-50% capacity; the 2020 Derby was delayed to September because all racing in Kentucky was shut down in the spring. Full rules and info for the wager is available here.
