Pool 1 of Kentucky Derby and Sire Future Wagers begin on Thanksgiving

The first pool of the 2019 Kentucky Derby Future Wager (KDFW) opens Thanksgiving Day and runs through 6 p.m. (EST) on Sunday, and trainer Bob Baffert has seven of the individual wagering interests, including undefeated Breeders’ Cup Juvenile (G1) winner and presumptive divisional champion Game Winner.

For the first time, the “All Others” mutuel field option will be divided into one entry for fillies and one for colts and geldings. The colt and gelding mutuel field (#24) was made the 7-5 morning line favorite by Churchill Downs odds-maker Mike Battaglia.

Game Winner is the lowest-priced of the individual entries on the morning line at 8-1. Other Baffert trainees in the field are Coliseum, Improbable, Magic On Tap, Mucho Gusto, Roadster, and Tale of the Union. Improbable captured the $100,000 Street Sense at Churchill on Breeders’ Cup weekend.

$2 Win and Exacta wagering is available on the KDFW, and bets can be placed at Churchill Downs, TwinSpires.com and other online wagering outlets and satellite wagering centers across North America.

There are no refunds in the KDFW. Should Churchill Downs officials determine during the duration of this week’s four-day pool that one of the wagering interests has experienced an injury, illness or other circumstance that would prevent the horse from participating in the Kentucky Derby, betting on the individual horse will be suspended immediately.

More information, Brisnet.com past performances and real-time odds on the KDFW will be available before the pool opens Thursday online at https://www.kentuckyderby.com/wager/future-wager.

Dates for the remaining 2019 Kentucky Derby and Kentucky Oaks future pools are February 8-10 (Pool 2), March 8-10 (Pool 3) and April 5-7 (Pool 4). The lone Kentucky Oaks Future Wager will coincide with Pool 3 of the Kentucky Derby Future Wager on March 8-10.
