Summer & Natalma
Jockey Club Derby
Prince of Wales Stakes
Pool Two 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 odds of 9-5. Life Is Good, winner of the Sham Stakes at Santa Anita last out, was the second choice at 7-1 and Essential Quality, winner of the Breeders' Cup Juvenile, was third choice at 8-1. The total amount wagered during Pool Two was $322,034 which was a 45% decrease over last year's second pool. $240,767 was bet into the win pool and $81,266 was bet into the exacta pool. You can view the exacta will-pays here.
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 1 was held November 26-29, 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.
