A pair of undefeated colts are tops on the list in 2016 Kentucky Derby future wagering with all of the 2015 Road to the Derby points races decided.

Nyquist was perfect in five starts this year capping off the season with a victory in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile (G1) which makes him a lock to win the Eclipse Award for top juvenile. The Doug O’Neill trainee is currently at Kentucky Derby betting odds of +1200 at Mybookie.ag.

The colt is currently atop the Road to the Kentucky Derby points standings with 30.

Mohaymen, who is perfect in three starts winning the Nashua (G2) and Remsen (G2) is the colt taking the most action, currently down to +5000 at Mybookie.ag.

The $2.2 million son of Tapit is trained by Kiaran McLaughlin and has been ridden by Junior Alvarado in all three of his wins.  He has 10 Road to the Derby points, good for seventh in the standings.

Mor Spirit was an impressive winner of last Saturday’s Los Alamitos Futurity (G1) and picked up 10 Derby points, giving him a total of 14 which places him fourth in the Road to the Derby standings. His Derby wagering odds have dropped to +1200.

Mor Spirit Wins Los Alamitos Futurity

The colt is trained by Hall of Famer Bob Baffert, who was winning his eighth Futurity, six at Hollywood Park and now both since the race has been shifted to Los Alamitos. He won it last year with Dortmund.

Another undefeated colt taking early betting action at Mybookie.ag is Hit It a Bomb, who won the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf (G1) in his U.S. debut.  The Aidan O’Brien trainee is co-second choice in early betting at +1200 at Mybookie.ag.

Delta Downs Jackpot (G3) winner Exaggerator is at +1500. The Keith Desormeaux trainee was fourth in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile and won the Saratoga Special (G2) back in August.

Airoforce, who’s only loss was a neck defeat in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf to Hit It a Bomb made a successful transition to dirt in his last outing, winning the Kentucky Jockey Club (G2) at Churchill Downs.

The Mark Casse trainee is now at +2000 in early Kentucky Derby betting at Mybookie.ag. His 10 Derby points puts him sixth in the standings.

The next Derby points race is coming up on Jan. 2 at Aqueduct, the $200,000 Jerome (G3) at one mile and 70 yards on the inner track.
